Super-Selective Arteriography of the External Carotid Artery
by Rene Djindjian (Author), J.-J. Merland (Author), I. F. Moseley (Translator), R. Houdart (Preface), J. Theron (Assistant)
- It was a great honour and a mark of our friendship that RENE DJINDJIAN asked me to present this new work from the Lariboisiere neuroradiological school. Professor DJINDJIAN died on 11th October. Introducing this book now, I feel that I am dealing with a fatherless child, where feelings of admiration and pleasure are mixed with the sadness of the loss and the bitterness of an unfinished task. This work on the superselective angiography of the branches of the external carotid artery is a direct continuation of the previous studies of Professor DJINDJIAN, whose name will continue to be closely associated with the development and progress of arteriography in recent years, particularly with arteriography of the spinal cord. It was realised together with his pupil, JEAN-JACQUES MERLAND, whose remarkable thesis for the Doctorat en Medecine a few years ago also dealt with this subject, and with the collaboration of JACQUES THERON, also for many years a pupil of RENE DJINDJIAN, and is translated here by his friend I.F. MOSELEY.
