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.
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.

Embosphere Microspheres from Merit Medical the most clinically studied spherical embolic available. Made from a proprietary formulation of an acrylic copolymer crosslinked with gelatin and indicated for the embolization of symptomatic uterine fibroids, AVMs, and hypervascular tumors. No other spherical embolic has as much clinical evidence supporting its effectiveness. Embosphere Microspheres predictably occlude the vasculature according to the size of the embolic. This allows the interventional radiologists to embolize accurately at the desired level of occlusion. The results from the fibroid registry, published in obstetrics and gynecology, demonstrate high physician confidence in.
Embosphere Microspheres with interventional radiologist choosing Embosphere Microspheres in 73 percent of cases. Independent physician studies published in peerreviewed journals repeatedly demonstrate the superior performance of Embosphere Microspheres for uterine fibroids over other spherical embolics. A landmark randomized controlled trial of Embosphere Microspheres versus spherical PVA reported that 92.3 percent of patients had 100 percent infarction of all of their fibroids. Embosphere Microspheres from Merit Medical. No other embolic has as much clinical data supporting excellent clinical outcomes.

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.
Portal Vein Embolization PVE for Contralateral Liver Hypertrophy
MUSIC Portal Vein Embolization for Contralateral Liver Hypertrophy. The liver is functionally divided into anatomical left and right lobes based on their relationship to the main trunk of the portal vein. For patients with right lobe tumors, surgical removal of this lobe, or right hepatic lobectomy, may be the best course of action. And segments remain after surgery called the Future Remnant Liver, or FRL, is too small to support the body, preoperative corrections must be made. In such cases, Portal Vein Embolization, or PVE, offers a minimally invasive procedure that enlarges the FRL.
By utilizing the liver's natural regenerative ability. For this procedure, the portal vein Is accessed by a direct course through the liver with the needle and guide wire to protect the sheath. Using sonagraphic and flouroscopic guidance, a catheter is advanced to each portal branch to be resected. Embolization is then performed through medicalgrade radiopaque glue, which sets immediately, clogging the blood flow into the vessel. This is repeated for each branch until complete declusion is achieved. This procedure is well tolerated although some patients may experience mild discomfort or slight fever for.
