Uterine fibroids can cause heavy, painful, erratic menses that cause anemia, easy tired- ness, dizziness, and poor tolerance for exer- cise. Many women with uterine fibroids suffer needlessly,
unaware of minimally-invasive resources to end their misery.One such treatment offered by our specialists is uterine artery embolization in which blood flow to the fibroids is blocked, killing them.
Reopening narrow and blocked arteries and veins.
Smoking, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, high blood cholesterol can narrow or obstruct blood flow to the feet, the kidneys, the brain, and the intestines. This may cause the loss of a limb, uncontrolled hypertension, stroke, or abdominal pain after eating, but our specialists use simple tools to treat such problems in minimally-invasive procedures called angioplasty, atherectomy, and stenting.
They use similar measures (excluding atherectomy) – called venoplasty and venous stenting – to re-open narrow and occluded veins in the limbs, the abdomen, or the chest. Such venous problems can occur in those who may have worn a catheter in their chest for hemodialysis or for the admin-istration of fluids, drugs, or nutrition and in people who may have had blood clot in their limbs or their veins pressed on or invaded by cancer.
Dialysis Access Maintenance
Patients with kidney failure rely on hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis to live, if renal transplant is not possible. Those on hemodialysis may have catheters put into them by our specialists or an artery connected to a vein in an area of their body by a vascular surgeon. These accesses are connected to achines that dialyze their blood (remove impurities and water) on set days of the week. The catheters and arteriovenous connections, called dialysis accesses, frequently malfunction or fail and our specialists restore their function.
Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty
The back bone (vertebral column) may fracture with little or no force in people with osteoporosis or some malignancies of the bone marrow. This can cause unpleasant pain until the fracture heals. The pain can be quickly alleviated or eliminated by us injecting “bone cement” into the injured bone using image guidance.
EVLT, phlebectomy, sclerotherapy for varicose vein.
When valves regulating the drainage of venous blood from the lower limbs are de- fective, the pressure in the veins rises over time and fluid and impurities are inefficiently cleared from the legs. The legs may ache, feel heavy, swell, tire easily during walks, and their surface veins grow wormy.
