IR Treatments

Following are some of the procedures that can replace major surgeries

Varicose veins: Pooling of blood in the veins from weak valves resulting in enlarged, swollen vessels causing pain and ulceration. Interventional endovenous laser treatment may be used to heat the vein from the inside, sealing it closed. Other healthy veins carry blood from the leg to reestablish normal flow. This is an OP procedure done under local anesthesia and patient will get back to all routine activities immediately.

Peripheral artery disease (PAD): Most commonly a result of atherosclerosis and smoking, occlusion of normal blood flow in the upper and lower extremities may result in pain, skin ulcers, or gangrene. Balloon angioplasty and stenting are available interventional treatments.

IVC filter placement: Patients who have a history of, or are at risk for, pulmonary embolism may receive temporary or permanent inferior vena cava (IVC) filters to prevent the migration of blood clots to the lungs, and consequently prevent recurrence of pulmonary embolism.
