A biopsy is a technique to extract a sample of cells or tissues from the human body so that it may be examined more closely. If you develop specific signs and symptoms or if your medical professional discovers a key risk location, you can be required to have a biopsy. Most commonly, biopsies are performed to check for tumors or cancer. But biopsies can also be used to diagnose numerous other illnesses.
During radiofrequency ablation (RFA), a tiny probe is inserted under the skin and into the tumor under the direction of ultrasound. Patients whose tumors are little than one and a half inches in size and who would have problems undergoing surgery can recover from RFA. Tumors in the liver, lungs, and other peripheral areas may be treated using RFA. Interventional radiology techniques, such as RFA, can help patients have less risk, discomfort, and faster recovery than open surgery.
A tiny catheter is inserted into the arteries that deliver blood to the liver from the bloodstream in your groin during chemoembolization. The Portal vein refers to the artery that carries blood to the tumor. The body is not affected by this treatment in the same way as chemotherapy can. Furthermore, inserting tiny particles blocks the hepatic vein.
Chemo Port Insertion
A subcutaneously or subdermal line as well as an access point created on a patient’s chest or arm to help administer intravenous (IV) chemotherapy is known as a chemo port. Chemo port entails inserting an apparatus under your body that provides vascular access for IV therapy and involves pumping imaging methods for scanning procedures. Your bloodstream can be accessed easily due to its placement.
PICC LINE Placement
The peripherally inserted central catheter is known as a PICC. A PICC line is a catheter that is placed into the vein within the upper arm and runs into the bigger vein that leads to the chest. Through it a PICC line, a patient can receive medication, liquids, plasma, or nourishment. Blood can also be extracted using it. Compared to a standard IV, a PICC line is larger and more robust. Additionally, it is thicker and penetrates the vein farther.
Gastrostomy PEG Tube Insertion
A feeding tube is inserted into your stomach during a surgery called a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube placement. You will be nourished, given fluids, and given medications through this tube. If you have difficulty eating or can’t receive all of the nutrients you need through the mouth, you could need a PEG tube. If you suffer from cystic fibrosis or get dialysis for kidney failure, a PEG tube might be helpful. To assist in keeping them alive, a PEG tube may be given to a patient in a coma.
This technique involves reinforcing collapsed bony vertebrae in the spinal column by bone cement. They effectively relieve the pain associated with these fractured collapsed vertebrae and give significant relief to these patients who suffer from restricted mobility due to the presence of pain.
Following placement of the trocar, the vertebra is either filled with cement (vertebroplasty) or inflated with a balloon-like device (kyphoplasty). As the balloon is inflated during kyphoplasty, it creates a space so that bone cement may be injected into it.
