The UFE procedure is a non-surgical option that treats all fibroids in one session through its blood supply. This FDA approved treatment has been accepted as an effective alternative to surgery by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and has been around for over 20 years!!⁣

Trans-Radial Uterine Fibroid Embolization #trUFE is the fibroid treatment with the smallest incision, which is less likely to leave any scarring behind. What is the difference between the traditional groin and the new radial UFE procedure?  Read more here: https://cvifibroidcenter.com/blog/rad…⁣

This safe procedure can even be performed on patients that are severely anemic or too high risk for surgery because of its safety, lack of operative blood loss and need for general anesthesia. ⁣

Do you need to have surgery for fibroids? Surgery is commonly reserved for cancer and emergencies, but it is still performed routinely for benign fibroids. If you a candidate for the UFE procedure, you do not need to have a surgery first approach. ⁣

✨Over 90% of patients and millions worldwide have been treated successfully.⁣
✨Can be performed through the arm (trans-radial), which can be much more comfortable and low risk for patients. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣💉Surgery is not your only option. Don’t wait until your fibroids grow even larger. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

👨🏻‍💻The video shows ultrasound images during a live thyroid nodule RFA. First the cystic fluid is removed, then the remaining solid nodule and cystic sac together is ablated using RFA energy. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💡This non-surgical treatment can shrink thyroid nodules with minimal to no scarring or surgical risks. There are no major incision, stitches or downtime. Patients go home with a Band-Aid. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💡Cysts (dark areas) contain fluid and these are first aspirated using a tiny needle. Once the fluid has been removed, an RFA probe is moved through the thyroid nodule “ablating” the tissues. This ablation process heats up the nodule tissue and cyst cavities burning them inactive. The body then recycles this dead tissue and the nodule shrinks over time. ⁣⁣
👨🏻‍⚕️This is performed by our image-guided specialist who has trained in ablation and has performed thousands of procedures using ultrasound! As one of the top ultrasound procedure specialists you will be in great hands. Did you know ablation is also performed by our specialist for renal, liver and lung cancers? ⁣🙌🏽⁣
⁣⁣
RFA is one of the first ablative methods used to treat solid cancers, showing effective shrinkage and death of cancer cells. ⁣

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is an outpatient non-surgical treatment for benign thyroid nodules. This innovative treatment is performed in our office with local numbing medication and is well tolerated. Patients walk out of the office with just a Band-Aid. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
👍🏼No major incision or scar⁣⁣
👍🏻No stitches ⁣⁣
👍🏾No major downtime⁣⁣
👍No surgical drains ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This treatment is performed by our advanced image-guided specialist that performs over 2000 ultrasound procedures yearly. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
RFA has been around for over a decade and initially used by Interventional Radiologist for the treatment of cancers, such as the liver and lung. Interventional Radiologist now use microwave and cryoablation (freezing) for cancerous tumors. RFA however is well suited for the treatment of thyroid and parathyroid lesions. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
How does RFA work? A special probe is placed into the nodule using ultrasound guidance. This probe then heats up the tissue using a radiofrequency. The heated tissue then shrinks and dies over time similar to cancerous tumors treated with ablation in other organs. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Successful outcome requires skill and experience in visualizing the thyroid in 3D while watching a 2D ultrasound image during the ablation. ⁣Our Double Board Certified MD is specifically trained in ablation of soft tissue and bony tumors. ⁣

PAE is one of the most challenging yet impactful procedures in Interventional Radiology.⁣

💡PAE is a relatively new non-surgical treatment option for an enlarged prostate or BPH. Microparticles are placed into the prostate artery blocking the blood flow to the prostate gland causing it to shrink in size and improve symptoms.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💡In 2018 the UK-NIH concluded that PAE is safe and effective to provide to patients with BPH and is now covered by their universal healthcare. “The safety profile and quicker return to normal activities may be seen as highly beneficial by patients considering PAE as an alternative treatment to TURP … place of PAE in the care pathway is between that of drugs and surgery.” ⁣⁣

2️⃣ Biopsy needle to obtain a sample ⁣
3️⃣ Hydrodissection needle to infuse fluid to displace and prevent ablation of adjacent organs ⁣

𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 #𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧? Ablation is a method of destroying tumor cells using heat, cold or other energy source. ⁣

For small lesions, such as kidney tumors and thyroid nodules, this is a proven therapy that avoids major surgery such as removal of the entire organ. ⁣

#Cryoablation shown above is where specialized needles freeze ❄️ tumor tissue causing cell death. 30 minutes later the patient is cancer free with preservation of the remaining healthy kidney. ⁣⁣

Prostate artery embolization (PAE) is one of the most challenging yet impactful procedures in Interventional Radiology.⁣

💡PAE is a relatively new non-surgical treatment option for an enlarged prostate or BPH. Microparticles are placed into the prostate artery blocking the blood flow to the prostate gland causing it to shrink in size and improve symptoms.⁣

💡Above picture shows the flow of contrast dye that outlines and fills the left prostate gland. Once the anatomy and safety of the artery is evaluated, the microparticles are then delivered through the microcatheter. ⁣

💡In 2018 the UK-NIH concluded that PAE is safe and effective to provide to patients with BPH and is now covered by their universal healthcare. “The safety profile and quicker return to normal activities may be seen as highly beneficial by patients considering PAE as an alternative treatment to TURP … place of PAE in the care pathway is between that of drugs and surgery.” ⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
💡The American Urology Association still considers PAE as experimental compared to their treatments. Regardless, there are multiple studies showing it’s efficacy and safety, the treatment is FDA approved and currently covered by some insurance companies. ⁣

Male patient with infertility due to bilateral varicoceles. This was treated with a non-surgical method called embolization with coils and foam. Studies show that semen count and function improve after this treatment. In fact, the patients’ spouse was pregnant 3 months later! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Varicocele is essentially varicose veins of the testicle and can occur in 15% of men, and 40% of men with infertility. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
#Varicocele can present with pain 🙁(especially after exercise) and can be a cause of infertility in men 😥. There are surgical and non-surgical options for treatment of a Varicocele 👍🏽⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Embolization is a non-surgical outpatient procedure done with local and moderate sedation that is essentially pain-free. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Through a vein in the neck a catheter is guided under x-ray into the abnormal testicular vein. This abnormal vein is then #embolized using coils and a #sclerosant medication causing it to close down. ⁣⁣
