INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY


The Boon of Modern Medicine

 The world is moving fast. A decade ago, we only had two options for treating patients -medicines or surgeries. Now a third option has slowly emerged called Interventional Radiology, a pin-hole procedure that combines the non-invasive nature of medicine with the accuracy and precision of surgery to quickly catalyse the active and fast paced lives of the next generation. In an era of cut throat competition where the pressure to deliver results in a short time increases the risk of physical and mental damage, Interventional Radiology and the wonders of modern science ensure that you stay focused at your work with unwavering health and confidence. Interventional Radiology can treat major vascular and non-vascular diseases with very minimal interventions. The procedure not only helps in clinician diagnosis but also creates multiple treatments options.

Angioplasty & Stenting

Embolisation

Intrathrombus Thrombolysis

Infertility treatment

Fibroids of uterus

Cancer treatment

Vertebroplasty

Ozone Therapy for Slip Disc

Varicose Veins Treatment with Laser Therapy

Deep Venous Thrombosis

Angioplasty & Stenting


If your legs cramp even while walking small distances, you mighthave blocked arteries of the lower limb. This condition is similar to blockages in the heart and is even referred to as a “leg attack”. If not treated, it can cause gangrene and might lead to death if not an amputation. Luckily, we can now treat these without surgery by performing angioplasty and stenting, a procedure quite similar to that for the heart. The procedure opens up narrowed arteries by inflating them with a small balloon in the diseased area.

Embolisation


If a patient bleeds while vomiting, coughing, excreting, urinating or through the nose or in the brain, it is extremely challenging and cumbersome to treat it with surgery. Yet with Interventional Radiology, the job looks like a breeze! By simple intervention, we not only locate the bleeder butcan also go deep into the bleeding artery or vein and block itwith coils, poly vinyl alcohol particles, gelfoam or glue. This embolization process doesn’t involve any surgery and can even be performed under local anaesthesia.

Intrathrombus Thrombolysis


When blood clots in its vessels, it is known as thrombus and with thrombolysis medication, one can easily dissolve these clots. Interventional Radiology offers to deliver this medication right into the clot for its early disintegration and the immediate blood vessel widening. This process is known to save limbs, brain and many other parts of the body where blood usually gets clotted.

Infertility treatment


Despite our extraordinary growth in population, infertility is still a major issue across India. One study estimates that nearly 40% of the infertility cases in young women are caused by blockages in the fallopian tubes. These blockages stop the sperm from ever fertilising the eggs, thus severally reducing the chances of pregnancy. Today, Fallopian Tube Recanalization, a wonder of modern science, allows us to reopen these blockages with a minimally invasive, non-surgical, OPD method of Interventional Radiology. This procedure has an extremely high success rate is the number one solution to infertility management all over the world.

Fibroids of uterus


Some women have to get their uteruses removed due to fibroids, a non-cancerous yet extremely dangerous form of tumor which is single handedly responsible for most cases of hysterectomy in the country. Despite Fibroid Embolization being first in the line of solutions for fibroid management in most parts of the world, women in Nagpur have been deprived of this procedure. That was until now. We at Pulse, endeavour to preserve the uterus as well as the joy of motherhood by this Interventional Radiological procedure that blocks blood supply to the fibroids, resulting in their complete shrinkage and eventual disintegration.

Cancer treatment


In the last decade, Interventional Radiology has literally revolutionized cancer managementfor the world. It has the most targeted treatment pattern with the least use of anti-cancer drugs. With Interventional Radiology, cancers in the liver, lung, kidney and other soft tissue can be treated successfully. These treatments can also be used prior to surgery to make it easy and efficient. Apart from the traditional radiological treatments, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is now amongst the most advanced armamentarium of Intervention Radiology for various canceroustumors in the body.

Vertebroplasty


As one grows older, bones start turning brittle as the calcium in them begins to decrease. During this period the vertebrae are most affected, especially in menopausal women. Calcium supplements often proveinsufficient in keeping these bones strong and there is a high risk of them collapsing and causing micro fractures - reducing old age to a miserable, painful, bedridden mess. Vertebroplastyat Pulse Clinic is a needle procedure wherein bone cement can be injected directly into these fragile vertebrae making them strong and pain free. The rational use of this underutilized procedure can make old age more agile and comfortable.

Ozone Therapy for Slip Disc


Disc is a shock up between two vertebrae which makes all the spinal movements smooth and effective. Forceful jerks, heavy weights and abnormal postures can lead to bulging, tearing or slipping of the disc. A dislodgeddisc can cause severe back pain, leg pain and weakness. The traditional cures for such disc prolapses have included pain killers coupled withcomplete immobilisation for a month and even surgery in extreme cases. With Ozone Therapy, the latest in slip disc treatment, ozone in its gaseous form is injected into the slip disc as well as the swollen nerve roots surround it. This leads to instant pain relief and shrinkage of disc and is a marvellous addition to backache management.

Varicose Veins Treatment with Laser Therapy


Varicose veins are dilated tortuous veins in the legs caused when valves fail to propel the blood towards the heart. The stationary blood leads to incredible pain, swelling, blackening of leg skin and non-healing ulcer – every patient’s worst nightmare. To make things worse, there is no medical treatment to revert a damaged valve. Unfortunately, medicines can only subdue the symptoms like pain, infections and inflammations without actually treating the underlying varicosities. Surgery too extremely complicated and is unsuccessful in removing multiple veins and perforators in a single attempt. It is cumbersome, scarring and prolonged. Lucky for us, modern medicine's latest development, Endovascular Laser Treatment is here to help us manage such patients. The OPD based procedure cures the pain without any cut or stitch. It has a whopping 95% success rate with negligible complications and recurrences. It is currently the best treatment for varicose veins in the world which is now readily available in Nagpur, courtesy Pulse Clinic.

Deep Venous Thrombosis


Deep Venous Thrombosis is a term given to blood clots in the major veins of the body, especially in the legs and brain. If not treated aggressively, these clots can result in a miserable life with non -healing ulcers and black swollen legs. If these clots block the lung circulation, they could even kill the patient. With an Interventional Radiology procedure known as Thromboaspiration with Intrathrombus Thrombolysis, we can not only suck out the blood clot but can also dissolve it to achieve quick patency of the blocked veins. Most importantly, this procedure saves the valves of the veins from irrevocable damage which in turn facilitates the quick restoration of blood flow in these veins. Additionally, we can also perform an Interventional Radiological procedure known as IVC Filter Placement wherein our doctors prevent larger blood clots from escaping into the lungs circulation by putting a filtering device in the IVC or the main vein of the body. This process allows only the liquid blood to flow, thus arresting the blood clots and preventing any further fatal complications.
