Patient Story Robotic Uterine Fibroid Embolization with Magellan
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 doctor 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 Dr. Bagla. Dr. 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 the uterus. Ivana The puncture that he made with the Magellan Robotics System, literally it was a little bandaid. And I remember, I had trouble finding where the incision was. Now I'm breathing.
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. Doctor 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.
How to cure uterine fibroids without surgery
Hello, I'm doctor Gillian Johnson As a former fibroids sufferer what I want to tell you is You don't have to suffer. Fibroids and fibroids symptoms can be cured WITHOUT surgery or a hysterectomy. I had two uterine fibroids, and you may know how painful is. After several unsuccessful medications, my gynecologist wanted me to undergo surgery. But another doctor suggested me to follow a new holisticdrugfree method, accessible on the web. In just 5 weeks fibroids shrunk drastically. No more pain, no more irregular periods, no more bladder pressure. The following ultrasounds shown that both of these fibroid were completely gone.
Myoma Uterine Fibroids What is Myoma, Causes, Symptoms and Treatment for Myoma
A fibroid is a benign tumor that mainly consists have muscular tissue and usually grows inside the uterus. Fibroids are also called myomas. Its size ranges widely, from a small tumor the size of a pea to a large tumor almost the size of the uterus. Myomas are classified into three types, depending on the location where they are found. The intramural myoma, a fibroid that grows in the muscular wall of the uterus. This subserosal myoma, a fibroid located just beneath the outside mucosal covering of the uterus. Here the fibroid projects to the.
Outside and occasionally remains connected with the uterus only through a small stalk. The submucosal myoma, a tumor that grows beneath the surface of the uterus lining. Therefore, this type of fibroids can grow into the uterine cavity. The actual causes have development of a fibroid are still unclear. However, it has been documented that fibroids are associated with high levels of estrogen, the female sex hormone. Fibroids can only developed during reproductive years of women. Following menopause, the production of estrogen decreases which will usually cause fibroids to shrink or disappear.
Myomas are more common in nonpregnant and infertile women. In general, fibroids are asymptomatic or associated with just a few complaints if any complaints. If any complaints occur, then the location, size and type of the fibroid are the major factors. Fibroids can affect nearby structures. They can cause compression of the bladder, which may lead to urinary complaints, or may obstruct the intestine, which may result in constipation. Other complaints can be backaches, abdominal problems, menstrual flow disturbances. Fibroids can impede normal childbirth, which may require caesarean delivery. Fibroids relatively more often lead to miscarriages.
Whenever fibroids cause symptoms, they need to be removed or shrinked. Medications sometimes cause fibroid to shrink by blocking the production and secretion of estrogen. In other cases, surgery may be required to remove the fibroid. The type of surgery depends on the location of the fibroid. Sometimes it's possible to remove the fibroid with the help of the tube entered through the vagina and the procedure is called hysteroscopic myomectomy. In other cases, surgery through the abdominal wall may be necessary. In the case of a large fibroid, hysterectomy may be the only solution.
Brian E. Kouri, MD Radiology Wake Forest Baptist Health
Hi, I'm Dr. Brian Kouri, I'm an interventional radiologist at Wake Forest Baptist Health. I came to Wake Forest Baptist Health because I really enjoy the environment of the hospital and the attitude that many of the employees have towards helping others. I also really enjoy living in WinstonSalem. My clinical specialties are all areas of Interventional Radiology with particular interest in uterine fibroid embolization as well as minimally invasive oncology treatments. I decided to become an interventional radiologist because it's one of the few areas of medicine where we get to treat all patients from all.
Different age groups with different medical disorders we treat children all the way up to senior citizens. The disorders we treat range from benign conditions such as vascular access problems all the way up to very serious disorders including cancer and other lifethreatening illnesses. My patient care philosophy is something I learned from my father who's also a physician and this is that When that patient walks in the door, that I treat them just like I would treat a blood family member. I enjoy working with patients because it provides me with instant feedback about the benefits.
That my treatment are providing. Recently, my wife underwent a tonsillectomy at Wake Forest Baptist Health and it was a very interesting experience for me because it offered me the opportunity to be on the other side. I had to wait in the surgical waiting room. I had to wait to hear what was happening with my wife during her procedure. And I really understood the anxiety that patients can feel when one of their loved ones is being cared for. It's really offered me a good reminder of what I do every day and what it means to.
Arteriovenous malformation AVM and Embolization Treatment, Animation.
An arteriovenous malformation or an AVM is an abnormal formation of blood vessels connecting arteries and veins, BYPASSING the capillary system. The blood vessels of an AVM are commonly dilated and weakened due to high blood pressure and an AMV may bleed. Bleeding from an AVM may cause damage to surrounding brain tissue and result in a hemorrhagic stroke. An AVM can develop anywhere in the body but occurs most often in the brain or spine. AVMs are mostly congenital but not hereditary. They are believed to form during embryonic or fetal development. AVM embolization is an endovascular treatment.
Aimed to block blood flow in to an AVM and therefore reduce the risks of AVM bleeding. In this procedure, a catheter is inserted through the femoral artery at the groin and threaded all the way to the brain AVM. The catheter is used to inject a special glue into the AVM. The glue hardens when it comes into contact with the blood and seals off the AVM from the blood flow. AVM blood vessels do not supply normal brain tissue and therefore their blockage will not have any consequences on the patient.
