 Arterial Embolization

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.'
