Minimum Access Maximum Result

  1. 1. Interventional Radiology<br />Minimum Access – Maximum Result<br />
  2. 2. Interventional Radiology is pin hole surgery performed with the aid of X rays, CT and ultrasound by specially trained doctors called Interventional Radiologists<br />
  3. 3. 8 out of 10 procedures use skin incisions smaller than 5 millimetres<br />
  4. 4. 9 out of 10 procedures use only local anaesthetic, sometimes with sedation<br />
  5. 5. Up to 8 out of 10 patients go home <br />the same day<br />
  6. 6. And it’s often a less invasive option than <br />traditional surgical procedures<br />
  7. 7. Blocked kidneys<br />Targeted cancer treatment<br />Varicose veins<br />Blocked bile ducts<br />Leg arteries<br />We treat many conditions.......<br />Here are just a few<br />Dialysis<br />Fibroids<br />Aortic aneurysms<br />Blocked arteries<br />Internal Bleeding<br />Blood clots<br />Blood vessel <br />malformations<br />Bone and spine<br />
  8. 8. Interventional Radiology<br />Cancer <br />Blood Vessels<br />Treats blood vessels from 2 mm to 30 mm <br />Narrowed blood vessels are stretched (Angioplasty) to improve blood flow<br />Blocked blood vessels can be internally reopened in many cases <br />Treatment of aneurysms (abnormal bulges in vessels).<br /> Bleeding Control<br />Many other treatments<br />
  9. 9. Unblocking arteries<br />Blocked arm artery (Arrow)<br />causing pain and arm weakness<br />Treated by internally<br />unblocking the artery and<br />placing a stent<br />Major surgery avoided. Total<br />treatment time of one hour<br />
  10. 10. Aortic Aneurysm <br />Abnormal bulge (aneurysm) of the main artery in the abdomen<br />Risk of rupture and major bleeding<br />Treated by internally relining the artery (Endovascular aneurysm repair-EVAR)<br />Major surgery avoided. Total treatment time of 90 minutes<br />
  11. 11. Scope of Interventional Radiology<br />Symptom relief<br /><ul><li> Stent insertion </li></ul> into the bowel for <br /> relief of obstruction<br /><ul><li> Insertion of lines for </li></ul> delivery of chemotherapy <br /> and nutrition<br />Blood Vessel<br />Cancer<br />Treatment<br /><ul><li> Thermal destruction of small</li></ul> cancers using image guided <br /> needles<br /><ul><li> Targeted chemotherapy into </li></ul> blood vessels supplying the <br /> tumour<br /> Bleeding control <br />Many other treatments<br />
  12. 12. Cancer Treatment<br />Small cancer lesion in the<br />liver (arrow) in a patient with<br />previously treated cancer<br />Image guided thermal<br />destruction<br />Surgery and chemotherapy<br />avoided. Treatment time of<br />60 minutes.<br />
  13. 13. Scope of Interventional Radiology<br />Blood vessels<br />Cancer<br />Key emergency role for Interventional Radiology<br />Treatment of bleeding from Trauma, bowel, child birth or following surgery<br />Blood vessels as small as 2-3mm can be treated<br />Blood vessels can be blocked (embolisation) or relined with a stent depending on the location and need<br />Many other treatments<br />Bleeding Control<br />
  14. 14. Bleeding into Bowel<br />Severe bleeding into the <br />large bowel (arrow)<br />Treated with selective<br />Blockage of the bleeding<br />Artery<br />Emergency surgery<br />avoided<br />
  15. 15. Scope of Interventional Radiology<br />Bone<br /> Blood vessel<br />Cancer<br />Dialysis<br />Fibroids<br />Bleeding control<br />Liver and Bile ducts<br />Many other treatments<br />Kidneys<br />
  16. 16. Too many procedures...too little space <br /> For more detailed patient information and further information about Interventional Radiology please visit<br />www. bsir.org & www.bsir-qi.org<br />
  17. 17. Interventional Radiology<br />Minimal access<br />Local anaesthesia/sedation<br />Quicker recovery<br />Less invasive alternative<br />
