Educational Objectives

Educational Aim:
The aim of this article was to compare the safety and efficiency of transcatheter arterial embolisation that was performed in patients younger than 15 years of age (paediatric cases) versus adult patients with the same type of trauma.

Educational Outcomes:
Upon completion of this module practitioners should have a clear understanding of:

  1. transcatheter arterial embolisation (TAE)

  2. the vital signs and pathology in both adult and paediatric patients
  3. whether TAE is less, more or equally safe to perform in paediatric cases, as it is in adult cases.
