The liver, pancreas, and biliary tree exist within a complex, interconnected relationship among each other and the enteric tract. They play vital roles in endocrine physiology, metabolism, and immunity. These anatomically complex organs can be affected by a variety of vascular conditions, ranging from acute and self-limited to chronic and life-threatening. The clinical workup and management of these conditions are as important to the interventional radiologist as the procedures that they are asked to perform to treat them. Knowledge of the diseases themselves, their natural course, and medical management can help to familiarize proceduralists with the reasons for referral and the complications and comorbidities that one can expect when treating these patients. In this chapter, we present a clinical overview of vascular diseases affecting the hepaticopancreaticobiliary systems.
