Recognition and management of dermatologic complications from interventional radiology procedures.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

A variety of dermatologic complications can occur after interventional radiology procedures, including fluoroscopy-induced radiation dermatitis, thermal skin injury from tumor ablation, non-target embolization to the skin, allergic reactions related to interventional radiology procedures, and dermatitis and infections at catheter sites. Yet, interventional radiologists typically lack training in dermatology. This review focuses on recognition of dermatologic complications and introduces basic principles for management of these complications. By taking a more active role in the diagnosis, management, and follow-up of dermatologic complications, interventional radiologists can improve the care for patients suffering iatrogenic skin inury.
