Private hospitals and clinics providing Pelvic vein embolisation

The embolisation procedure involves blocking the varicose vein and this is a radiological procedure. Using ultrasound to assist with location, a catheter is inserted into a major vein via a pinhole sized entry point in the skin which is then positioned into the pelvic vein needed to be treated, with the help of X-ray. A small metal coil is inserted through the catheter where it sits in the vein causing it to clot and essentially shut down. This procedure is normally performed as an outpatient and under local anaesthesia.
