A thrombectomy is a minimally invasive procedure in which a catheter is inserted through an artery in the groin and guided, using a dye visible via cerebral angiogram, towards the arteries in the brain.
Once there, the catheter can break up a clot blocking blood flow in the brain and bring it back out through the groin, helping the patient resume normal blood flow.
A thrombectomy is a procedure done by highly specialized interventional radiologists/neuroradiologists, like those on our team at INA.
