Neurointerventional Radiology

Kathy Coughlin, Neuro Interventional RadiologySt. Mary's of Michigan's Neurointerventional Radiology Team has demonstrated commitment to identification of newer techniques that improve the diagnostic and treatment options for patients with debilitating conditions as well as those that are life-threatening.

Some of the most common procedures include :
  • Arteriogram
  • Thrombolytic therapy for stroke patients
  • Mechanical thrombectomy for stroke patients

Additionally we also perform Balloon Kyphoplasty. This minimally invasive treatment repairs vertebral (spine) compression fractures caused by osteoporosis, cancer or benign tumors. With a hollow instrument the physician makes a narrow pathway through a tiny incision into the fractured bone. Then a small orthopedic balloon is guided through the instrument, inflating it to raise the collapsed vertebra and return it to its normal position. The balloon is then deflated and removed, creating a void which functions as a "container" for bone cement. The cement forms an internal cast that holds the vertebra in place.
