An ahead-of-print article in the April issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR) reviewing various techniques and clinical management paradigms to treat severe frostbite injuries -- relevant for interventional radiology, especially--showed promising results using both intraarterial and intravenous tissue plasminogen activator to reduce amputation. AJR's meta-analysis of thrombolytic therapy updates the guidelines for all interventional radiologists, including a suggested protocol, inclusion and exclusion criteria, and potential complications.
