Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/29/2018 -- With the First Lady in the news due to her recent kidney embolization procedure, there has been a fair share of coverage in regards to embolization procedures and their exact nature. At PA Vascular Institute, patients can receive treatment for peripheral artery disease of the leg in Philadelphia, as well as have uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) procedures and prostate artery embolization procedures performed. In fact, those interested in these procedures should contact this leading vascular center to book an appointment.
Simply put, an embolization is a procedure that cuts off blood flow and vessels from supplying a tumor, growth, or an aneurysm with what it needs to grow. These growths are typically found around the liver or kidney. However, embolization procedures can also be used to treat fibroid tumors of the uterus. Uterine fibroid embolization, or UFE, is a non-surgical, minimally-invasive procedure available at PA Vascular Institute. With this type of procedure, which often lasts less than an hour, patients are quickly able to feel relief from the unpleasant symptoms of fibroid disease.
Those who are affected by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or an enlarged prostate, can also benefit form the embolization procedures performed at PA Vascular Institute. Their minimally invasive procedure to treat BPH consists of a small incision into the groin through which a catheter is used to release microspheres into the prostate artery. Microspheres temporarily block blood flow which allows the prostate to shrink and relieve the patient's urinary symptoms.
PA Vascular Institute continues to lead the way with their cutting-edge embolization procedures, and those suffering from uterine fibroid tumors or BPH can call them today at 800-614-7294 to schedule an appointment.
