When PCS is diagnosed, embolization is usually the indicated treatment for about 25 years now. It is a minimally invasive, Non-surgical treatment used to stop the abnormal blood flow causing the painful symptoms.
Embolization has shown a high rate of success in symptom improvement (85 % – 95 %) and represents a safe and efficient treatment.
During the procedure, a thin catheter, about the size of a strand of spaghetti, is guided to the affected vein.
To seal the faulty, enlarged vein and relieve the pressure, tiny coils are inserted with a sclerosing agent (the same type of material used to close varicose veins.)
