Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is an outpatient non-surgical treatment for benign thyroid nodules. This innovative treatment is performed in our office with local numbing medication and is well tolerated. Patients walk out of the office with just a Band-Aid. ⁣
⁣
đŸ‘đŸŒNo major incision or scar⁣
đŸ‘đŸ»No stitches ⁣
đŸ‘đŸŸNo major downtime⁣
👍No surgical drains ⁣
⁣
This treatment is performed by our advanced image guided specialist that performs over 2000 ultrasound procedures yearly. ⁣
⁣
RFA has been around for over a decade and initially used by Interventional Radiologist for the treatment of cancers, such as the liver and lung. Interventional Radiologist now use microwave and cryoablation (freezing) for cancerous tumors. RFA however is well suited for the treatment of thyroid and parathyroid lesions. ⁣
⁣
How does RFA work? A special probe is placed into the nodule using ultrasound guidance. This probe then heats up the tissue using a radiofrequency. The heated tissue then shrinks and dies over time similar to cancerous tumors treated with ablation in other organs. ⁣
⁣
Successful outcome requires skill and experience in visualizing the thyroid in 3D while watching a 2D ultrasound image during the ablation. ⁣

💡This non-surgical treatment can shrink thyroid nodules with minimal to no scarring or surgical risks. There are no major incision, stitches or downtime. Patients go home with a Band-Aid. ⁣
⁣
💡Cysts (dark areas) contain fluid and these are first aspirated using a tiny needle. Once the fluid has been removed, an RFA probe is moved through the thyroid nodule “ablating” the tissues. This ablation process heats up the nodule tissue and cyst cavities burning them inactive. The body then recycles this dead tissue and the nodule shrinks over time. ⁣

Prostate artery embolization (PAE) is one of the most challenging yet impactful procedures in Interventional Radiology.⁣

⭐ While this is a low risk procedure, the biggest risk is non-target embolization of beads into organs outside of the prostate. In the above image there is communication of the prostate artery with the penis. A good procedural evaluation can identify these communicating branches so that they can be closed off before the administration of beads.
⁣
💡PAE is a relatively new non-surgical treatment option for an enlarged prostate or BPH. Microparticles are placed into the prostate artery blocking the blood flow to the prostate gland causing it to shrink in size and improve symptoms.⁣

💡In 2018 the UK-NIH concluded that PAE is safe and effective to provide to patients with BPH and is now covered by their universal healthcare. “The safety profile and quicker return to normal activities may be seen as highly beneficial by patients considering PAE as an alternative treatment to TURP

6 month follow up testimonial video of the UFE procedure done for multiple fibroids. trUFE is the fibroid treatment with the smallest incision, which is less likely to leave any scarring behind. What is the difference between the traditional groin and the new radial UFE procedure? Read more here: https://cvifibroidcenter.com/blog/radial-femoral-fibroid-embolization/

Did you know that most patients are told that their only option is surgery or hormones? The UFE procedure is a non-surgical option that treats all fibroids in one session through its blood supply. This FDA approved treatment has been accepted as an effective alternative to surgery by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and has been around for over 20 years!!

✹Over 90% of patients and millions worldwide have been treated successfully.
✹Can be performed through the arm (trans-radial), which can be much more comfortable and low risk for patients ⁣⁣⁣

Prostate artery embolization (PAE) is one of the most challenging yet impactful procedures in Interventional Radiology.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💡PAE is a relatively new non-surgical treatment option for an enlarged prostate or BPH. Microparticles are placed into the prostate artery blocking the blood flow to the prostate gland causing it to shrink in size and improve symptoms.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💡Above picture shows the flow of contrast dye that outlines and fills the left prostate gland. Once the anatomy and safety of the artery is evaluated, the microparticles are then delivered through the microcatheter. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💡In 2018 the UK-NIH concluded that PAE is safe and effective to provide to patients with BPH and is now covered by their universal healthcare. “The safety profile and quicker return to normal activities may be seen as highly beneficial by patients considering PAE as an alternative treatment to TURP 
 place of PAE in the care pathway is between that of drugs and surgery.” ⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
💡The American Urology Association still considers PAE as experimental compared to their treatments. Regardless, there are multiple studies showing it’s efficacy and safety, the treatment is FDA approved and currently covered by some insurance companies. ⁣⁣

Live prostate artery embolization. PAE is one of the most challenging yet impactful procedures in Interventional Radiology.⁣

⭐ While this is a low risk procedure, the biggest risk is non-target embolization of beads into organs outside of the prostate. In the above image there is communication of the prostate artery with the penis. A good procedural evaluation can identify these communicating branches so that they can be closed off before the administration of beads.

No issues other than pain at the injection site, likely attributable to a highly excited IR nurse that finally gets to stab me with a needle 😂😋

Live prostate artery embolization. PAE is one of the most challenging yet impactful procedures in Interventional Radiology.⁣

⭐ While this is a low risk procedure, the biggest risk is non-target embolization of beads into organs outside of the prostate. In the above image there is communication of the prostate artery with the penis. A good procedural evaluation can identify these communicating branches so that they can be closed off before the administration of beads.

Options: COVID infection, COVID Vaccine or continue living in isolation. Answer: only one good choice.

No issues other than pain at the injection site, likely attributable to a highly excited IR nurse that finally gets to stab me with a needle 😂😋

The science behind this vaccine is solid. Go #ribosomes go!

Laser lithotripsy of a large gallstone. ⁣

Sometimes a drain has to be placed into the gallbladder due to gallstone pain. However if the patient can’t get their gallbladder removed they can get stuck with the drain for the rest of their life 😼 This affects not only a patients quality of life but also the family, who often become the caregivers 🙁 ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
When surgical removal of the gallbladder is not an option these stones can be removed by a trained Interventional Radiologist đŸ‘šđŸœâ€âš•ïž as an outpatient procedure. The gallbladder tube can then be removed rendering the patient tube free, greatly improving a patient’s quality of life đŸ™đŸ‘đŸ»âŁâŁ

Live prostate artery embolization. PAE is one of the most challenging yet impactful procedures in Interventional Radiology.⁣

⭐ While this is a low risk procedure, the biggest risk is non-target embolization of beads into organs outside of the prostate. In the above image there is communication of the prostate artery with the penis. A good procedural evaluation can identify these communicating branches so that they can be closed off before the administration of beads.

Patient with large fibroids (8 and 6 cm) who was told menopause would take care of her symptoms. The fibroids however calcified after menopause and she was left with persistent symptoms. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
đŸ€ŠđŸœUnfortunately, the only option for calcified fibroids is a hysterectomy. This major surgery is not ideal for elderly patients with surgical risks factors đŸ‘ŽđŸœ Such patients end up living with their symptoms if they cannot have a hysterectomy đŸ‘ŽđŸœâŁâŁ
⁣⁣
đŸ‘©â€đŸ’»What are calcified fibroids? Untreated fibroids after menopause can calcify, or harden with mineral deposits. This is what gives them the white appearance on X-ray similar to bone 🩮 If these calcified fibroids are large they will cause pressure in the pelvis and push on the bowel and bladder, causing symptoms like frequent urination or constipation â˜čïžâŁâŁ
⁣⁣
💡 Can you perform Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE) on calcified fibroids? No, unfortunately this is no longer an option at this point. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💡The wait and see approach may not work for everyone. Obtain a second opinion and get permanent treatment for the fibroids if needed. ⁣⁣

💡What is UAE? This is a non-surgical procedure where microparticles are placed into the fibroids cutting off its blood supply resulting in shrinkage. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
