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.
