Intervention Radiology & Endovascular Surgery

Intervention Radiology (IR) treatments have become first-line care for a wide variety of conditions. Complete clinical evaluation and state-of-the-art imaging allow us to perform a complete range of radiological interventions at CMRI.

Intervention Radiology Advantages:

  • Less pain – General Anesthesia is usually not required
  • Less time in recovery – require only a short hospital stay
  • Less scarring – no open surgery, so no large scar
  • Less expensive than open surgery

Neurological Interventions:

  • Embolization in Intracranial Aneurysms and AVMs
  • Stenting of Carotid Artery Stenosis
  • Intra-Arterial Thrombolysis in Acute Ischemic stroke
  • Pre-operative Embolization of Skull & Head/Neck Tumor

Chest Interventions:

  • Intercostal tube drainage for Loculated Pleural Effusions
  • Bronchial artery embolization for refractory Haemoptysis
  • Embolization of Pulmonary Arterio-Venous Malformation

Gastro-Intestinal Interventions:

  • Drainage of Liver Abscess, Abdominal Collections
  • Biliary drainage and stenting in Obstructive Jaundice
  • Drainage of Infected collections in Acute Pancreatitis
  • Embolization in Gastrointestinal Bleeding
  • Angioplasty of Budd- Chiari Syndrome / IVC Occlusion
  • Trans-Jugular Intrahepatic porto-systemic shunt (TIPSS)- in Cirrhosis with severe bleeding or Ascites

Nephrology / Urologic  Interventions:

  • Haemodialysis Access Maintenance – Angioplasty or thrombolysis to open up blocked veins
  • Permanent Catheter insertion for Haemodialysis
  • Percutaneous Nephrostomy in Obstructive Uropathy
  • Embolization in Haematuria (Post biopsy, Trauma)
  • Angioplasty of Renal Artery Stenosis

Gynaecological Interventions:

  • Uterine Fibroid Embolization – with less risk, less pain and less recovery time and significant relief of symptoms
  • Embolization of Uterine Artery in Postpartum Haemorrhage
  • Fallopian tube Recanalization
  • Ovarian vein embolization in Pelvic Congestion Syndrome

Treatments for Cancer:

  • Radio frequency Ablation in Tumors of the Liver, Kidney, Lungs and Breast produce heat and kill tumor cells while sparing healthy tissue
  • Transarterial Chemoembolization (TACE) in Liver Cancer- Chemotherapy agents are delivered directly to the liver cancer allowing a quicker recovery and minimal side effects

Lower limb Interventions / Comprehensive Foot Care:

  • Angioplasty in Atherosclerotic Peripheral Vascular Disease
  • Endovascular Ablation in Varicose Veins
  • Foam Sclerotherapy in Spider Veins/ Calf Varicosities
  • Thrombolysis / IVC filter in Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • Diabetic Foot  management
  • Chronic venous Leg Ulcer management
