• angioplasty
  • New procedures that are available include the endovascular treatment of cerebral aneurysms with coils, embolization of arteriovenous malformations and fistulas, carotid stenting and angioplasty, stroke therapy and prevention, vertebroplasty, as well as many other therapies. (keepingyouwell.com)
  • On January 16, 1964, he performed a therapeutic angioplasty of a superficial femoral artery in a 82-year-old woman with an ischemic leg refusing amputation. (wikipedia.org)
  • A coronary angioplasty is a therapeutic procedure to treat the stenotic (narrowed) coronary arteries of the heart found in coronary heart disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Relative to surgery, angioplasty is a lower-risk option for the treatment of the conditions for which it is used, but there are unique and potentially dangerous risks and complications associated with angioplasty: Embolization, or the launching of debris into the bloodstream Arterial rupture from over-inflation of a balloon catheter or the use of an inappropriately large or stiff balloon, or the presence of a calcified target vessel. (wikipedia.org)
  • tumor
  • 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)
  • occlusion
  • 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)
  • patients

  • Surgery is the gold standard for curative therapy, but in most of NEN patients with liver metastases, when surgery can not be applied, minimally invasive therapeutic approaches are adopted. (biomedcentral.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)
  • IR has transformed every sphere of patient management process and has gained traction among clinicians and patients due to the use of minimally invasive image-guided techniques. (tmrresearch.com)
  • Finally, patients under 65 are much less likely to develop embolization compared with patients over 75. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
