Percutaneous nephrostomy is a medical procedure used to treat patients with blockage of the urinary system. The objective of this procedure is to temporarily drain the urine by inserting a nephrostomy catheter through the skin into the renal pelvis. This procedure has fewer side effects than surgery.
Kidney and Graft biopsies
An interventional radiologist can use the test to determine the kind of kidney disease you have. Additionally, a kidney biopsy can be done to check on the efficacy of kidney procedures and determine whether there are any issues after a kidney transplant. What is preventing your kidneys from functioning normally can be determined with a kidney biopsy. Two kidneys in a healthy person carry out a variety of functions.
Renal artery stenting
When the big blood vessels that supply blood to the kidneys have been blocked because of kidney artery compression, the renal arteries can be opened via a process known as renal artery stenting. Stenting removes the obstruction and resumes regular blood flow. Blood flow to the kidneys is hampered by blocked renal arteries. The obstruction is broken up and normal blood flow is restored by stenting.
Renal Tumor Ablation
Small renal cell tumors can be treated safely and less invasively with percutaneous image-guided renal ablation while maintaining renal function.
A guided biopsy should be performed to obtain a tissue sample prior to tumor ablation. This will provide more details about the tumor, or an interventional radiologist might decide to collect a sample while you’re receiving care.
Preoperative embolization is a procedure where the blood flow of a tumor is decreased during treatment. This is done by injecting a clotting substance into the vein, which cuts off the flow of blood to the tumor. The procedure is often carried out a few days before the operation. Preoperative embolizations are techniques that enable or enhance the results of subsequent surgical
Pseudoaneurysm Coil Embolisation
As a result of acute injury to the artery vasculature, pseudoaneurysms (PAs) have a significant chance of rupturing, posing a serious risk of mortality and necessitating immediate medical attention. For pseudoaneurysm, coil embolization is the best option. An accurate closure of aberrant blood flow in a blood vessel is made possible by the catheter-based procedure known as coil embolization.
The placement of a specialized IV line into the coronary artery in your neck or chest area, just below the collarbone, is known as a Perma cath. Short-term nephritis is treated with this kind of catheter. A permcath is a kind of tube used to inject chemotherapy or carry out a bone marrow transplant in individuals with hemophilia. It is also used to treat patients on short-term dialysis when their kidneys are not functioning properly.
Dialysis AV Fistuloplasty
With the guidance of X-rays, an Interventional Radiologist performs a fistuloplasty. To identify obstruction or fistula narrowing, a radioactive tracer is employed. Stretching the blood vessels with a particular balloon releases the obstruction. For long-term hemodialysis, a surgically constructed AV fistula connects an artery and vein in the forearm or upper arm. Despite your best efforts, your fistula might still get infected, obstructed, or constricted. A fistuloplasty is necessary if there is any obstruction or constriction.
Central Venoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure. It involves very little physical contact. balloon is used in this method to stretch out a constricted vein by applying air pressure. Central vein stenosis is common because of the placement of venous access and cardiac intravascular devices and compromises vascular access for dialysis. Endovascular intervention with angioplasty and/or stent placement is recommended for these conditions.
AV Fistula Thrombosis
An uneven connection between an artery and veins is known as an arteriovenous (AV) fistula. Generally, blood travels from the arteries to the microvascular, then to the legs. While they can develop in any part of the body but arteriovenous fistulas typically affect the legs. Draining veins/ dialysis fistula often gets blocked after multiple sessions of dialysis. Percutaneously a balloon is inflated at the stenosis site to relieve the stenosis.
