Interventional radiology

Mobile interventional radiology

If we as humans had the choice between painful, open surgery or a small, reduced pain, keyhole procedure, we would certainly be choosing the latter. Now the same option is available to your pets.

Interventional radiology utilises various medical imaging equipment such as ultrasound, endoscopy and fluoroscopy (continuous x-ray) to assist with minimally invasive procedures.

We are now able to treat some inoperable tumours, particularly of the liver, with specialised chemicals directed down the vessels supplying the cancer. This stops blood supply to the cancer and can deliver chemotherapy at this same time, therefore no traditional side effects.

We can also place stents in the urinary tract or airways to open them up and reestablish flow. Overall, interventional radiology means shorter hospital stays, reduced pain associated with big surgical wounds, less healing and usually home the same day.

At VSOS, we pride ourselves on being leaders in veterinary interventional radiology. We have invested in the latest equipment to diagnose internal injury and disease, and we can treat a number of conditions in your local vet clinic, including:

  • Cystoscopic-assisted laser ablation (CLA) of ectopic ureters for urinary incontinence
  • Laser assisted turbinectomy (LATE) for treatment of brachycephalic patients
  • Urethral bulking for urinary incontinence using collagen
  • Ureteral stent placement for blocked ureters
  • Percutaneous cystolithotomy (PCCL), minimally invasive removal of bladder stones
