Intracranial and Extracranial Tumor Embolizations

  • Embolization (blocking) of blood vessels feeding a tumor can help minimize bleeding during surgery. Tumor embolization is a minimally invasive procedure in which a catheter is navigated into the blood vessels supplying the tumor using x-ray guidance and embolic material is injected to stop blood flow.

Intra-Arterial Chemotherapy

  • Intra-arterial chemotherapy infusions are a minimally invasive procedure in which a catheter is navigated into the blood vessels supplying a tumor and high doses of chemotherapy medication are delivered directly in to the area of the tumor.
