Interventional Radiology is also sometimes known as vascular and interventional radiology is a wide range of procedures that are minimally invasive image guided diagnosis and treatment. The range of the procedures in interventional radiology is very wide but is guided with the common aspect of using minimally invasive and image guidance techniques for surgery done to minimize the risk of complications. Interventional Radiology has seen a steady rise in popularity because of the state-of-the-art techniques and equipment used when performing the procedure. Interventional Radiology has both therapeutic and diagnosis procedures including procedures such as Angiography, Cholangiography, Biopsy, Balloon angioplasty/stent, Embolization, Thrombolysis, IVC Filters, Dialysis, TIPS or Transjugular Intrahepatic Porto-systemic Shunt, Endovenous Laser Treatment, Cholecystectomy and many more similar procedures.
Patients can require anywhere between several hours to several weeks to recover depending on the type of interventional radiology procedure. This is why selecting the right medical tourism package for interventional radiology procedures is the need of the hour. We have collaborated with internationally and nationally accredited medical institutions with top of their class experienced surgeons and state-of-the-art equipment that felicitate holistic recovery and successful surgery.
Most interventional radiology procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis requiring a short stay at the medical facility or sometimes a few hours. It is usually done under local anesthesia where the risk, recovery and pain are often comparatively reduced while being less expensive and invasive than usual surgical procedures. Let’s take a look at some of the Interventional Radiology procedures.
Common Interventional Radiology Procedures
is undertaken to diagnose blockages in the veins and arteries and other problems related to the blood vessels. A catheter is employed to enter the blood vessel and a contrast agent (x-ray dye) is used to improve the visibility of the artery or the vein on the x-ray.
is usually undertaken to open blocked or narrowed blood vessels through the insertion of a tiny balloon and then inflating it. This procedure is used by interventional radiologists to unblock the clogged arteries in the arms and legs, brain, kidney or anywhere else in the body.
is a procedure that employs a stent (small mesh tube) to widen or open up blocked ducts to allow the bile to drain from the liver. The procedure usually takes a couple of hours to perform and the recovery time can be anywhere between 2-4 days or a couple of weeks.
is a procedure to treat carcinogenic tumors by locally delivering chemotherapy with a process known as embolization to treat cancer of the liver and several other organs. The procedure can be performed on both local as well as general anesthesia depending on the condition of the patient and usually requires a full month to completely and holistically recover.
also known as CVC is a procedure to administer medication or fluids which cannot be orally taken by placing a catheter in in veins in the neck, chest, groin, or through veins in the arms. It can be long term as well as short term depending on the actual underlying condition of the patient and treatment requirements.
is a procedure that is used to deliver medications as well as synthetic materials known as embolic agents through the help of a catheter into a blood vessel to block the blood flow in a particular area of the body. This procedure is also used to control or stop abnormal bleeding, close off the vessels that supply blood to the tumor, remove the abnormal connections between veins and arteries, and for the treatment of aneurysms.
is a procedure where surgeons employ a catheter to widen and open a blocked fallopian tube without surgery in response to problems such as infertility. The procedure can be done in as little as half an hour and the recovery time is usually as low as a week for holistic and complete recovery.
is one of the minimally invasive procedures undertaken to destroy the nerve fibers that carries pain signals to the brain. The procedure is non-invasive or minimally invasive and employs heat from radiofrequency waves to burn the nerve that is causing the pain, which is basically breaking the transmission of pain signals to the brain. The procedure usually lasts less than an hour and patients do not require to spend time at the facility.
