Ivana: i love to walk. it really feels great. i’m a teacher. sometimes i work with the preschoolers or first grade, and you want to kind of be on their level, when you’re sitting down. So I wasn’t able to sit down a lot of times. And I noticed a lot of bloating. My body just wasn’t functioning the way that it normally was. Last year the noticed that I had fibroids that were the size of lemons. I was in pain a lot. I couldn’t wear anything that buttoned. It literally looked like I was nine months pregnant. I was embarrassed. I sought.
Medical advice from my obgyn about other options other than a hysterectomy. and he referred me to Bagla. Bagla: Ivana, when she sought us out to have uterine fibroid embolization and it was performed robotically, she was ecstatic and knew that she was undergoing a procedure that would offer her a chance to really change her life. With traditional surgery, such as hysterectomy or myomectomy, there is an open incision, and most women are not ecstatic.
About having a large incision in the lower part of their abdomen, the scar, the potential for bleeding, or infections. With fibroid embolization as a whole, that procedure can be performed minimally invasively on an outpatient basis sometimes, and just through a simple needle hole. What’s unique about the Magellan System is its ability to get to both right and left uterine artery, which is critical for the procedure. It offers support for our microcatheter to then deliver the embolic material right into the correct place within.
Patient Story Prostate Artery Embolization with Robotic Catheter
Biking brings balance to my life, good physical activity and a great sense of enjoyment A group of 6 of us, we ride, we take a couple of major trips a year they know that I’ve gotta stop a little bit more frequently than they do to use the facilities, which in part determined how much I rode and how often I rode. I had been diagnosed with prostate.
Enlargement 1520 years ago. My symptoms had progressed to the point where it was intrusion in my life it really affected my energy my ability to concentrate, my ability to just function in my ordinary day both in the office and also with functions at home. (I) was facing the issue.
Of requiring surgery or this new procedure prostate artery emobolization which was using interventional radiology to achieve the same purpose without surgery having heard what was involved in surgery and now having this option to do something so much less invasive was such a relief. I had prostatic artery embolization PAE,.
With the magellan robotic system differences in recovery are night and day, differences in risk complications are night and day, all in favor of the prostate artery embolization benign prostatic hyperplasia or enlargement of the prostate gland it’s the most common benign tumor of the prostate. Rosenberg really want us to take advantage of novel technologies such as robotics.
And the magellan system to really make his procedure as successful as possible. And the procedure really relies on the fact of treating the root of the problem and that’s the prostatic growth. The device offers us the ability to now use a catheter which we can shape in any direction and then guide within the body and deliver targeted therapy to a certain organ.
So it’s given us a new confidence, a new tool to be able to get this target and ultimately deliver a success therapy. Here i am about six to seven weeks after the procedure The fact that my symptoms are so much less, I sort of forgot about what I had before Frankly consider myself very lucky to be able to train and be back on the bike and to.
