Trauma and Bleeding

Embolization is a well-established interventional radiology technique that is used to treat trauma victims with massive bleeding, to control hemorrhage after childbirth and as a treatment prior to surgery to decrease blood loss. Some treatments interventional radiologists provide are a less invasive option than surgical removal of all or part of the organ, such as in liver trauma and spleen trauma.
