Experts see risks of artery devices

I guess the question is how risky??? A 1% chance, 5% chance 10% chance?

Accidentally slicing through the thinner vein wall is not necessarily dangerous but could be, depending on the location and size of the hole, said Dr. Peter Collingwood, president of the Canadian Interventional Radiology Association, whose members specialize in such procedures.

"If you bleed from a vein in your hand, you get a bruise," noted the physician from St. John's, Nfld.

"If you bleed from a vein in your chest, you do not have much time left."


Here is what Dr. Sclafani has said an IR could do in the event of rupture:

i can think of three ways to reduce bleeding from tears
1. manual compression of the torn vein
2. a stent to allow blood to flow by the torn area
3. reinflation of a balloon to allow some sealing of the tear.

One reason to choose a doctor with trauma experience such as Dr. Sclafani as your IR, perhaps? But I don't see it as much of a risk, if only because we've had just one rumored report of a rupture which was solved by a stent placement last summer.

Dr. Sinan was reported as using valvulotomes last April, iirc.

Seems a little early for damage control Cece, considering that they don't even seem to be on the market yet.

ridiculous. valvulotomes are used in veins all the time. IRs dont use them, surgeons do.

personally, i think that a valvultome is going to be a great alternative now that we know the valve is the problem
