With many diseases that once required invasive surgery, Interventional Radiology (IR) is quickly becoming treatment of choice by many doctors. Interventional Radiology is a minimally invasive method of treatment which can provide similar results as open surgery with faster recovery time, less discomfort and fewer complications.
Because the vascular system is so complex and far reaching, diseases can appear anywhere in the body in many different forms. Arterial and vascular disease often occurs along with other diseases like diabetes or heart disease. The most common include, PAD, CVI, and May-Thurner Syndrome.
A variety of problems can occur in men involving their blood vessels. In some cases, blood flow into the area is not adequate and needs to be opened. In other cases, there may be overgrowth of tissues or blockage of blood flow that needs to be corrected to restore function.
Women have unique vascular needs. Vascular health extends beyond that of the heart and can strongly affect a woman’s abdominal comfort and health, such as with uterine fibroids and pelvic congestion.
If you are experiencing lack of circulation, pain, or heaviness in certain areas, you might be having vascular pain. This develops when there is interruption in blood flow to a tissue, organ or nerves. Often times pain can be centralized in the shoulder known as Adhesive Capsulitis or in the knee known as Osteoarthritis.
