This abnormal vein is then #embolized using coils and a #sclerosant medication causing it to close down. No stitches 👌🏼No major incision 👌🏼 No general anesthesia 👌🏼 Outpatient - Patient goes home with a Band-Aid 👌🏼⁣

Patient with a lung vascular malformation called an “AVM” treated with an outpatient embolization procedure using coils 😃 No stitches. No major incisions. Home same day 👏🏻 Seek an Interventional Radiologist for expertise embolization procedures. ⁣

☝🏽Pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (AVM) are abnormal lung vessels with direct communication between the pulmonary artery and the pulmonary vein.⁣

🤔 Why does this need treatment? ⁣
👉🏼Clots or bacteria in the lung circulation that would normally get trapped in the capillaries can pass through the AVM to the blood vessels of the brain and cause stroke or brain abscess. Infections elsewhere in the body can occur also.⁣
👉🏼 Without normal intervening capillaries, blood returns to the body without oxygenation. If large enough this can cause shortness of breath, especially with exertion.⁣
👉🏼 The AVM often has weak walls, which can bleed into the lung.⁣

Sometimes a drain has to be placed into the gallbladder due to gallstone pain. However if the patient can’t get their gallbladder removed they can get stuck with the drain for the rest of their life 😮 This affects not only a patients quality of life but also the family, who often become the caregivers 🙁 ⁣

When surgical removal of the gallbladder is not an option these stones can be removed by a trained Interventional Radiologist 👨🏽‍⚕️ as an outpatient procedure. The gallbladder tube can then be removed rendering the patient tube free, greatly improving a patient’s quality of life 🙏👏🏻⁣
