In recent years, major progress has been made in interventional radiology which has allowed the development of minimally invasive therapeutic alternatives with fewer complications for patients not eligible for conventional treatments. Initially reserved for last-resort treatments, interventional radiology now offers alternative therapies from the early stages of disease. New therapies are emerging and are becoming more and more personalized to the pathology, its stage, and the patient's characteristics.
Several emerging themes are being developed in vascular interventional radiology with, for example, osteoarticular embolization for the treatment of chronic pain, prostatic artery embolization in the treatment of benign prostatic hypertrophy, and new focal therapies in oncology.
All these new therapies are focused on the destruction of neovessels. Nevertheless, interventional radiology could also stimulate neoangiogenesis with ischemic preconditioning before surgery. We can clearly see that a concept of controlled ischemia therapy is being developed.
We are pleased to invite you to submit papers with the results of basic and clinical research on endovascular therapies that aim to provide more personalized treatments.
This Special Issue aims to introduce physicians and researchers to these new endovascular therapies.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Fundamental study of the mechanisms of endovascular ischemia;
- Micro and macro analysis of the response to endovascular ischemia;
- New therapies by controlled endovascular ischemia;
- Structure, organization and quality evaluation (X-ray dose optimization) of these new vascular therapies.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Personalized Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
