Interventional angiography and endovascular treatment

It is now possible to perform minor surgery via the catheters inserted into the vessels:

  • Injection of special products to block certain tumorous vessels: this is the principle of embolisation,

  • Dilatation of narrowed arteries in order to restore adequate blood flow using specific balloons (transluminal angioplasty),
  • Prosthetic fitting to prevent restenosis of dilated vessels (stent).
