Interventional Radiology for DVT
Interventional Radiology - Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
The goal in the treatment of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)is to remove or to dissolve blood clots. Typical treatments have included medications such as blood thinners and thrombolytics. However, interventional radiology incorporates minimally-invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat DVT.

Our Approach to DVT Care
Meridian Deep Vein Thrombosis Treatment
Interventional radiology has been described as the surgery of the new millennium. It is a medical sub-specialty of radiology utilizing minimally-invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system. The concept behind interventional radiology is to diagnose and treat patients using the least invasive techniques currently available in order to minimize risk to the patient and improve health outcomes. These procedures have less risk, less pain and less recovery time in comparison to open surgery.

The goal in the treatment of acute (new) DVT is to remove or to dissolve the blood clot. Once the clot is removed, the swelling and pain typically resolve.

Individuals with DVT have a high risk of developing a life threatening pulmonary embolism. Placing medicine via catheter directly into the pulmonary embolism can help reduce complications.

Older clots and scars may remain from prior DVT. We have a variety of techniques to re-open veins that have been blocked long term.

The physician inserts an IVC filter which helps prevent pulmonary embolism. Retrieval of embedded filters is also available.
