Biliary Drainage in Houston, TX
When there is a blockage of the bile ducts from inflammation, gallstones or cancer, one of Synergy Vascular and Interventional’s highly-trained interventional radiologists can bypass the obstruction with small catheters and wires under X-ray guidance. A plastic catheter is placed into the biliary tree to provide a temporary passageway for bile to drain from the liver to an external drainage bag. Sometimes a stent or catheter can be advanced into the bowel to allow for internal drainage.
The catheter being placed is performed without surgery and is only a small incision in the skin.
