For most vascular conditions, we can perform a minimally invasive treatment called embolization. It is used to treat abnormal vessels or veins.
Under local anesthesia, possibly with a mild sedative, we make a tiny incision to access the blood stream through the femoral artery in the groin or the jugular vein in the neck. A tiny catheter and needle are inserted through the blood stream and navigated to the vein where we can address the problem.
We may need to close off a vein or insert a device to open the vein, and there are several ways to do that, depending on the location and type of vein problem.
