False aneurysm coiling (below the knee)
The major challenge of this case is to navigate to the point of interest in ultra-thin vessels without hurting surrounding tissues, while being able to coil all and only the vessels that link to the false aneurysm.
When you are about to perform an
angioplasty procedure, it is always important to understand vessel patency to
ensure that you can guide and position your devices optimally. The planning
phase will also help in selecting stent needed to restore correct blood flow.
The rest of the procedure is all about the stent placement and controlling
appropriate deployment with the tools you use every day.
Embolization of uterine fibroids is a minimally
invasive treatment well adopted among interventional radiology societies.
Identification of the feeding vessels and navigation to the embolization point
can be a challenge when dealing with complex cases and especially when the
radiation dose to the patient is a concern.
