Embolization is a minimally-invasive procedure that stops blood flow in target areas.
An embolization procedure is a useful medical technique for:
- Control or prevention of abnormal bleeding.
- Cutting off blood supply to a tumor.
- Correcting abnormal connections between veins and arteries.
- Dealing with aneurysms (a bulge at a weak point in a blood vessel wall).
- Decreasing the size of tangled non-straight veins to reduce pain and swelling.
Benefits of an Embolization Procedure?
The Embolization procedure as a treatment option is beneficial to patients because:
- It is highly effective at stopping bleeding.
- It's less invasive - less time in hospital and minimal bleeding.
- It treats areas that are difficult for surgeons to reach safely.
- Less damage to the body - one small cut for inserting a catheter.'
