Show Notes

In this episode, Dr. Jafar Golzarian joins Dr. Michael Barraza to discuss genicular artery embolization for osteoarthritis. Dr. Golzarian describes how he worked and collaborated with orthopedic surgeons to offer this procedure for his patients. He also speaks about some potential underlying causes and aggravating factors for osteoarthritis.

Dr. Golzarian provides useful tips on taking an academic approach to setting up trials and what makes his trials different from previous studies on genicular artery embolization. We discuss why patients with osteoarthritis can be a challenge for family practitioners and how collaboration with IR can benefit these patients.

We go into the differences in the procedure for hemarthrosis and osteoarthritis. We review some ways to find the best angle to identify an arterial origin for embolization, and we discuss some of the challenges in the embolization procedure and how to adapt to different types of patients.
