Meridian Deep Vein Thrombosis Treatment

Our Approach to DVT Care

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.

Treatments and Procedures Offered

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.

Pulmonary embolism treatment
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.

Chronic DVT treatment
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.

Inferior Vena Cava Filter Clinic (IFC)
The physician inserts an IVC filter which helps prevent pulmonary embolism. Retrieval of embedded filters is also available.
