What is Geniculate Artery Embolization?

Geniculate artery embolization (GAE) is a minimally invasive procedure that involves reducing blood flow to the geniculate arteries present in the knees, to alleviate chronic knee pain. It is typically associated with conditions like osteoarthritis. This is an alternative for patients who either want to avoid surgery or are at risk to undergo any form of surgery. At Medagg we help you get the best GAE treatment. 

Chronic Knee Pain Relief - GAE

 Chronic knee pain: GAE is primarily used to address chronic pain in the knees, by reducing blood flow to the geniculate arteries.

Non- surgical procedure: GAE does not involve the removal of damaged joint tissue, or insertion of artificial components used in replacement surgeries

 Pain reduction: The objective of GAE is to reduce pain and improve knee function, potentially avoiding the need for any type of knee replacement

Day care procedure: GAE is done as a day care procedure, meaning they can often return home the same day.

 Minimal recovery time: Recovery from GAE is generally quicker and less extensive compared to knee replacement surgery.

 Not suitable for all: GAE may not be appropriate for all cases of chronic knee pain. The decision on treatment should be made based on individual medical assessments

Advantages of GAE

Minimally invasive: GAE is a minimally invasive procedure, leading to less tissue damage and a smaller incision compared to traditional replacement surgery.

 Reduced Pain: GAE is performed to alleviate chronic knee pain, which can significantly improve the patient’s quality of life.

No joint replacement: GAE provides a great alternative to traditional knee replacement surgery by addressing pain without the need for open surgery.

Shorter recovery time: Recovery time of GAE is very fast and less extensive than recovery from knee replacement surgery.

 Imaging-guided precision: The procedure is guided by imaging techniques thus ensuring accurate targeting of the geniculate arteries.

 Reduced risk: GAE involves fewer surgical risks compared to open surgery, like infection and blood loss.

 Customized treatment: GAE can be customized to eachpatients’ specific needs, making it a more personalized treatment option.

Quality of life improvement: By reducing chronic knee pain, GAE will enhance the patient’s mobility and overall quality of life.

Procedure of GAE

Patient preparation:

The patient is positioned on the procedure table, and the knee area is cleaned and sterilized. An intravenous line may be inserted for administering medications and fluids.

Local anaesthesia :The knee area is numbed with a local anaesthetic to eliminate discomfort during the procedure.

Imaging guidance : Fluoroscopy, ultrasound and other imaging techniques are used to visualize the geniculate arteries and guide the procedure of GAE.

Catheter insertion :A very thin and flexible catheter is inserted into an artery, usually in the groin or wrist.

Artery navigation: The catheter is carefully navigated through the artery to reach the geniculate arteries in the knee.

Embolization: Embolic agents are injected through the catheter into the geniculate arteries. The embolic agents reduce blood flow to the arteries thus helping to alleviate chronic knee pain.

Post-Procedure care :Patients are typically provided with pain medications and post-procedure care instructions.

Recovery and follow-up : Patients are advised to rest and gradually resume normal work over the following days.Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor progress and address concerns.
