Strokes and aneurysms can cause the loss of brain function due to the formation of blood clots. Endovascular treatment is a method that your cardiologist at Heart and Vascular Care, P.A., uses to rid you of any blood clots through a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure. This can help to improve your quality of life and help you feel more comfortable and functional in your daily life.
What Endovascular Treatment Can Do for You
In the past, endovascular treatment was much harder to perform and required open surgery with incisions. With the advancements in technology and procedures, this treatment is now much easier and won’t require you to undergo surgery, and can help patients who cannot receive surgery due to other underlying conditions.
Before endovascular treatment is performed, your doctor will have you meet with them and go through your medical history as well as a physical exam. They may also have you undergo a stress test and an electrocardiogram to be sure that your body is ready to handle this form of treatment. The procedure is performed by using a wire to find the aneurysm and remove any blockage you may be experiencing.
Once the procedure is done, your doctor will have you stay at the hospital for a few days to monitor how your body is reacting after endovascular treatment. You’ll be allowed to go home, and you’ll have to follow up with your doctor after a week or two to make sure that you are recovering as planned. Be sure to talk to your doctor about any concerns or questions you may have.
