What kinds of after effect with coil embolization(incase, without rupture of blood vassel )?

What kinds of after effect with coil embolization(incase, without rupture of blood vassel )?

Depends on tissue: Embolization refers to placing a device in an artery supplying tissue downstream so as to induce blood clots closing off blood flow. Thus response is powerfully a function of what artery is embolized & whether collateral blood supply is present via other artery pathways so as to reduce the impact of blood supply loss on cell/tissue ischemia (insufficient blood supply for some/all cells to live). ...Read more

What are common after effects for a brain aneurysm operation using the coil embolization procedure?

What are common after effects for a brain aneurysm operation using the coil embolization procedure?

Rare side effects: You can have problems in three different areas after an embolization procedure: 1. The groin site where you gained access. 2. The arteries all the way up to the head. 3. The brain in the form of a stroke or a bleed. That being said, the rate of complication from a coiling of an aneurysm is extremely low in experienced hands. ...Read more

Having spermatic vein embolization coils removed due to nickel allergy. What are the risks?

Having spermatic vein embolization coils removed due to nickel allergy. What are the risks?

What exactly: do you mean ..the risks of removal are obviously re-currence of the varicocoele plus the risk of anesthesia. I know of no other "risks" Perhaps you should discuss this with the UROLGIST who placed the coils in the firstplace? ...Read more

I underwent Celiac artery aneurysm embolization by coil occlusion. It was successful but can I suffer complications later? I'm 44 and concerned

I underwent Celiac artery aneurysm embolization by coil occlusion. It was successful but can I suffer complications later?  I'm 44 and concerned

Isolated celiac: artery aneurysm is a rare condition. You should be happy that embolization was successful. I don't think you will suffer any remote complications from the procedure itself. Major concern would be development of any other aneurysms in other parts of your body, such as brain or any genetic defect. It seems unlikely that this celiac artery aneurysm was caused by atherosclerosis. ...Read more

Is it possible to treat Varicocele with embolization, not using to coils?

Is it possible to treat Varicocele with embolization, not using to coils?

Yes: Studies show that varicocele can be treated by embolization or surgery. However, surgery has a failure rate of only about 5%, and failure of embolization can reach up to 19-20%. See: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3433543/ ...Read more

Can it be normal in varicocele embolization to place 13 coils one on top the other?

It's nothing wrong..: To assure succesfully blocking the proximal part of dilated spermatic veins, interventional radiologist will use the number of coils and the amount of sclerozing material, whatever deem necessary to them, to accomplish the job - blocking the offending vein. That is nothing wrong as you described. ...Read more

Is it possible to have a varicocele embolization undone (i.e. remove the coil)? If so, are there any risks?

Is it possible to have a varicocele embolization undone (i.e. remove the coil)? If so, are there any risks?

Varicocele: In general no, it is not feasible to remove the coil from a small vessel such as the spermatic vein. I think the larger question is, why would you want to have it removed? ...Read more

What happens during an embolization procedure?

Directed ischemia: There are a variety of techniques used to embolize a lesion. A catheter is used to select as precisely as possible the blood supply to the target. Once in place any number of materials are injected via the catheter with the goal to block as completely as possible the blood supply to the target and cause the target to infarct by loss of blood supply. This can be done under local or general anesthes. ...Read more

What's varicocele embolization?

What's varicocele embolization?

Blocking flow: Varicoceles are caused when the valves that prevent backflow in the spermatic vein fail, causing the veins of the scrotum to dilate because of high pressures. Embolization destroys the spermatic vein (which cannot be repaired), allowing collateral veins with functioning valves to take over the flow and normalize the pressures. ...Read more

What is embolization of the varicocele?

Varicocele embo: Varicocele embolization is the plugging of the gonadal vein or veins causing the varicocele. Through a tiny incision, a catheter is directed into the gonadal vein, and using coils and/ or particles, the vein(s) are plugged, redirecting blood flow to other healthy pathways. http://www.sirweb.org/patients/varicoceles/. ...Read more

Would having an embolization help stop endometriosis-related pain?

Would having an embolization help stop endometriosis-related pain?

Not likely !: Embolization of pelvic vessels work best for uterine hemorrhages and to shrink uterine fibroids by blocking its blood flow . Pelvic pain with endometriosis is best treated by surgical resection of the disease. With advances in robotic assisted laparoscopy, it can often be removed without the need of a hysterectomy. ...Read more

Just over two months ago i had an embolization procedure for my vericocele and i've seen no changes. Do i need to wait more? If so how much longer?

See physician: There is 90% success rate with radiologic guided embolization, the same results as those achieved with more invasive surgical techniques.In approximately five to 10 percent of patients the varicoceles return. This rate of varicocele recurrence is similar to the rate reported for more invasive surgical procedures.The recovery period following varicocele embolization is typically 48 to 72 hours. ...Read more

A way to block...: Varicocele embolization is an innovative means to treat voricocele at need with injecting embolizing coil + sclerosing agent to induce proximal level at spermatic vein entering left renal vein performed by interventional radiologists, so to cause blocking spermatic vein and in time, collapsing varicocele, with a claim of improving semen quality and pregnancy rate. ...Read more

What is a varicocele embolization?

Here it is ...: Varicocele embolization is done exactly like performing venogram of inferior vena cava to reach the opening where testicular vein drains into left renal vein or inferior vena cava on the right one, & interventional radiologist deploys coil + occluding substance so to eliminate gravitation pressure down to varicocle. The available studies claimed its outcome as favorable as micro-varicocelectomy. ...Read more
