Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a progressive, degenerative joint disease that causes pain, stiffness, and decreased range of motion in the knee. It is the most common form of arthritis, affecting >20% in individuals aged 45 and over. The condition can progress over time and lead to disability, however there are treatments available to help manage the symptoms and improve function.This education provides the GP with a understanding of how minimally invasive vascular embolization (MIVE) can be a treatment modality to offer instead of, or alongside, more traditional therapies such as pharmacotherapy, physical therapy modalities, intraarticular injections and surgical approaches. In the context of knee OA, MIVE is used to block blood flow to the genicular arteries, which supply blood to the synovial lining of the knee joint, which is often painfully inflamed in knee OA. This can help to reduce inflammation and pain in the knee.
Interventional radiologists are well placed to support GPs and their patients with these types of vascular embolization solutions. During this education, our GP moderator is joined by leading interventional radiologists and an orthopaedic surgeon to discuss patient selection and address GPs’ questions on vascular embolization in the knee.This educational activity will explore what MIVE is, how is is performed, its effects for the patient with knee OA and how to access this emerging modality.
Demonstrate a framework for assessing menopausal symptom severity and for providing advice to women on options for optimal management.
