• artery embolization
  • To report early results following prostatic artery embolization (PAE) and compare outcomes between nonspherical polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) particles and microspheres to treat lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). (hindawi.com)
  • 9 ] reported a case of the reduction of prostatic volume after prostatic artery embolization (PAE) for the treatment of BPH with bleeding, experimental animal studies [ 10 , 11 ] in dogs and pigs demonstrated that PAE can lead to prostate gland volume reduction without sexual dysfunction.

  • occlusion
  • Embolization devices including bare metal and bioactive/coated coils, aneurysm remodeling devices (stents and occlusion balloons), flow diversion devices and liquid embolic agents can be used to treat intracranial aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and optimize outcomes.

  • Embolization involves the selective occlusion of blood vessels by purposely introducing emboli, in other words deliberately blocking a blood vessel. (wikipedia.org)
  • endoscopy
  • Endoscopy is a critical early intervention that can be used to establish the source of bleeding, and it also offers therapeutic options. (medscape.com)
  • Early endoscopy allows estimation of the rate of recurrent bleeding and enables various therapeutic options. (medscape.com)
  • If no active bleeding is identified angiographically in a patient with documented recurrent bleeding by endoscopy, prophylactic embolization of the left gastric artery or the gastroduodenal artery may be performed to control gastric or pyloroduodenal bleeding, respectively. (medscape.com)
  • particles
  • Embolization was performed using nonspherical PVA particles (250-355 μ m) in four patients and microspheres (300-500 μ m) in five patients. (hindawi.com)
  • patients
  • According to statistics obtained from the Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou, the success rate of this minimally invasive method in patients with cancer at an early stage can reach 90 percent. (blogspot.com)
  • Routine clinical activity ensures a high standard of care for all surgically-treated patients, providing conservative surgery (organ/function preserving or minimally invasive) for early stage disease and combined treatment modalities for advanced disease. (docplayer.net)
  • Finally, patients under 65 are much less likely to develop embolization compared with patients over 75. (wikipedia.org)
  • Endoscopic
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is minimally invasive procedure commonly performed for biliary and pancreatic diseases. (ijhpd.com)
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is one of the most frequently performed therapeutic procedures for biliary and pancreatic diseases. (ijhpd.com)
  • Endoscopic injection sclerotherapy (EST) is a valuable therapeutic modality for the management of variceal bleeding. (ebscohost.com)
  • Laparoscopic
  • We present 3 cases of giant angiomyolipoma (10, 12 and 14 cm) treated with a combined approach: superselective embolization and subsequent laparoscopic partial nephrectomy, in 3 separate hospitals. (elsevier.es)
  • treatments
  • 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)
  • blood
  • The risk of systemic embolization (atrial clots migrating to other organs) depends strongly on whether there is an underlying structural problem with the heart (e.g. mitral stenosis) and on the presence of other risk factors, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • cases
  • A positive angiographic finding of bleeding is needed to initiate embolization, except in cases in which bleeding has been localized before-for example, in the left gastric artery (LGA) or gastroduodenal artery. (medscape.com)
  • means
  • in 1991 he published two works dealing with the embolization of brain aneurysms by means of detachable platinum coils (Guglielmi's coils). (wikipedia.org)
