Stent Placement

Advancements in medical technology have given rise to a growing number of vascular and interventional radiology (VIR) procedures. VIR is a medical subspecialty that uses a combination of imaging and noninvasive techniques to address a number of health problems safely and successfully.

Experts in the field have developed a particular VIR procedure for each debilitating and curable medical condition. That means the number of functions in this cutting-edge subspecialty is constantly growing and many of these proven procedures are now being successfully performed at Vascular & Interventional Partners.

Why Vascular and Interventional Radiology?

VIR procedures are performed using image guidance, catheters, and specialized instruments instead of creating large incisions to gain access inside the patient’s body. Now we can guide catheters through blood vessels with the help of X-rays, ultrasound, MRI, and other imaging technology toward the treatment area. Medical experts are increasingly embracing minimally invasive treatments because they pose less risk to the patient and lead to faster recovery. These treatments are also more cost-effective, requiring shorter hospital stays and a lower need for post-operative attention.

VIR means that patients can be treated without large incisions, general anesthesia, and monitoring in the hospital. And thanks to fewer risks involved, even critically ill patients have been shown the possibility of relief with this alternative approach when no other options would have been safe enough.

What is Portal Hypertension?

Vascular and Interventional Radiology Procedures

Most VIR procedures involve imaging guidance, catheters, and specialized instruments, but they differ slightly in technique and technology used. Many of the procedures in this field require a multi-disciplinary approach. Examples of VIR procedures performed at our facility include those that treat the blood vessels, benign and malignant tumors, joint diseases, and the gastrointestinal system. Some work by cutting off blood supply to the problem area, while others improve blood flow and circulation. Still, others allow for the specialized delivery of drugs and other treatments. In all cases, the need to create large incisions is eliminated, and patients can recover in a matter of days without worrying about visible scarring.
