Arterial Variations in Humans: Key Reference for Radiologists and Surgeons Classification and Frequency 1st Edition During my angiography and interventional radiology rotation as a radiology resident I was fascinated by the delicate arteries one could see when contrast medium was injected into them. At the same time, I was often disappointed that many arteries did not follow the course given in standard anatomy textbooks. The remarkable diversity of arterial anatomy sometimes made me feel lost for words when it came to the reports we had to write after the procedure. At that time, there was a small reference library in our radiology department and I was quite grateful that it included a thin book by Lippert and Pabst, published in 1985 and entitled Arterial Variations in Man: Classification and Frequency,
which helped me to understand the complexity of arterial anatomy.

The sketches in this book nicely delineated a multitude of variants in many arterial territories. The bundled information on the frequency of arterial anomalies, often hidden in old and inaccessible journals and books, was an important asset for my studies. Not only radiology residents but also many of our colleagues from the surgical field cherished this book.

Variations in the arteries supplying a given organ are usually harmless; however, the correct detection and interpretation of pathologic changes requires knowledge of both the normal and the anomalous arterial blood supply. In addition, under certain circumstances some variants can have a negative effect. This is especially relevant for therapy planning in surgery, endoscopy, and interventional radiology, where an intimate knowledge and an understanding of the blood supply prior to a procedure helps to avoid unpleasant surprises during intervention.

Many years after my first contact with Lippert and Pabst’s book, I became Chairman of Radiology at Hannover Medical School in Germany, the alma mater of Professors Lippert and Pabst, and I got to know them in person.

I expressed my appreciation for their book and we discussed the substantial advances that had been made in both invasive and noninvasive vascular imaging since its publication. In digital subtraction angiography (DSA), improved tubes and detectors offer high-spatial-resolution angiography.
