Transaction Support in Kentico API?

Just curious, does Kentico have any API support for transaction and roll back on things like Custom Tables? An example is if I have 1-to-many relationship in two Custom Tables (say A and B), and i need to do a 2 step update:

1: Delete the current items in B related to the item in A 2: Load in the new items that are related to item A into table B

If 1 is successful, but step 2 fails, can the step 1 be 'undone' via a transaction cancel / roll back?

Sorry for poor explanation.

Hey Trevor!

You should be able to use something like this:

using (CMSTransactionScope trans = new CMSTransactionScope())
    // do your work
