I think we’re really at the tip of the iceberg. I think this is very early—in my mid stage of the career, I will probably not be practicing as this evolves into something that’s the full standard of care in multiple joints. But outside of BPH, this is probably the biggest and probably most impactful change I think we’ll see in the embolization space in the next 10 years.—Sandeep Bagla, MDWarren Krackov, MD, FSIR, speaks with interventional radiologist Sandeep Bagla, MD, about the prospects for genicular artery embolization to help patients with osteoarthritis of the knee, the state of research in this promising treatment, and how interventional radiologists might get involved.Related resources from the Society of Interventional Radiology:Read Dr. Bagla's paper, "Genicular artery embolization for the treatment of knee pain secondary to osteoarthritis" (Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology,  Dec. 16, 2019)Read Dr. Bagla's article, "Genicular artery embolization: The future standard of care for inflammatory conditions" (a special preview of "New Horizons in Interventional Radiology," supplement to IR Quarterly, April 30, 2021)Note: This episode was recorded on  April 25, 2021.SIR thanks Guerbet, LLC, for its support of this episode.Contact us with your ideas and questions, or read more about about interventional radiology in IR Quarterly magazine or SIR's Patient Center.(c) Society of Interventional Radiology.Support the show (https://www.sirweb.org/corporate-gateway/advertising/)
