• PATIENTS
  • PATIENTS--205 consecutive children and adults undergoing therapeutic embolisation for congenital heart disease in the 10 years up to 1 April 1993. (bmj.com)
  • Intranodal lymphangiogram and dynamic contrast-enhanced MR lymphangiography have been used to more precisely image the leaks, and in the small number of patients who have been treated to date, embolization of the TD has been highly successful in controlling cast formation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cannulation of the thoracic duct followed by embolization should be considered in those patients who are shown to have leakage of lymphatic fluid into the airway. (wikipedia.org)
  • It demonstrated a very low risk of embolisation even in the absence of long term anticoagulation treatment of the patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • glue
  • We report a case of 90-year-old man for whom successful embolization with N-Butyl Cyanoacrylate glue was performed as an alternative treatment for recurrent epistaxis. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Outcome
  • IO treatments may be also offered in combination with any of the above oncological therapies in order to augment the therapeutic outcome in more complex or widespread (metastatic) cancer cases. (wikipedia.org)
  • treatment
  • It may be pathological (in which sense it is also called embolism), for example a pulmonary embolism, or therapeutic, as a hemostatic treatment for bleeding or as a treatment for some types of cancer by deliberately blocking blood vessels to starve the tumor cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • tumor
  • Sometimes it is created intentionally for a therapeutic reason, such as to stop bleeding or to kill a cancerous tumor by stopping its blood supply. (wikipedia.org)
  • risk
  • However, this therapeutic option is associated with a significant risk of irreversible segmental colonic ischaemia. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Anastomoses between external carotid artery and internal carotid or ophthalmic arteries heighten the risk of stroke or blindness, if particles of polyvinyl alcohol are used for embolization. (biomedsearch.com)
