Interventional radiology is used in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the kidney, including:
Complex Central vein recanalization: Patients who have had multiple venous access can have blockage of the large veins which can be re-opened by interventional procedures.
Arteriovenous (AV) Fistulaplasty: A blockage or narrowing in an AV fistula dilated with a balloon.
Thrombolysis of Arteriovenous (AV) fistula: An Arteriovenous fistula thrombolysis is treated by dissolving the blood clots in the fistula, and improving the blood supply.
Permcath insertion: Permcath is a flexible tube that is inserted through a vein in the neck for short-term dialysis treatment.
Renal Artery stenting: Atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis is treated by placing a stent in the renal artery in selected cases.
