Interventional Radiology Animal Catheter Lab (Penn)
In the Interventional Radiology Catheter Lab minimally invasive procedures are performed via fluoroscopy, ultrasound and endoscopy. Percutaneous vein and arterial access is performed via ultrasound-guided technique. Surgeons are then able to guide catheters, ballon dilation, and other small instrumentation through the blood vessels. Procedures that have been performed in the lab are:
• Aneurysm creation
• Balloon angioplasty
• Embolization (coil, glue, embospheres)
• Inferior vena Cava (IVC) filter placement & retrieval
• Selective arterial catheterization
• Stent placement (renal, gastric, iliac)
• Peroral gastroenteric anastomosis
This lab has capabilities for full surgical and anesthesia protocols and full fluoroscopy imaging. Included in the lab are a small office space, an LCD monitor and computer for the fluoroscopy unit, eye wash station and a surgeon scrub sink.
