Hepatobiliary/GI  Interventions

In conjunction with Gasteroenterologists and surgeons, Interventional Radiology offer a host of complex procedures to help in treating biliary and hepatic disease.

Biliary Disease

  • Perctaneous Transhepatic Cholangiography (PTC)
    • Bile ducts are injected percutaneously with contrast to study anatomy and possible sites of obstruction.
  • Perctutaneous Biliary Drains (PBDs)
    • A drain is left in the biliary system to decompress the liver.
    • Stenotic areas can be crossed allowing placement of the drain into the GI tract—often opening strictures.
  • Biliary Stents
    • Metal stents can be placed across biliary strictures secondary to tumor.
  • Cholecystostomy Drains
    • Ultrasound and fluoroscopic guided placement of drains into the gallbladder are used in conjunction or in lieu of surgery to safely decompress an inflamed gallbladder
