This month’s journal-based CME article is titled " Superior rectal artery embolization for symptomatic grade II and III hemorrhoidal disease: 6 months follow-up among 43 patients". This is a single-center prospective study of 43 patients with symptomatic hemorrhoidal disease treated with superior rectal artery (SRA) embolization. The authors report technical and clinical outcomes up to 6 months.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologists, colorectal surgeons, gastroenterologists, nurses, techs, and trainees at all levels with special interest in treatment options for symptomatic hemorrhoidal disease. To receive CME credit for this journal-based CME activity, participants must read the journal article and score 75% or better on the post test. Participants will have three opportunities to score 75% or better.
After participating in this journal-based CME activity, learners should be able to:
- Discuss patient populations who may be appropriate for SRA embolization
- Describe the techniques to perform SRA embolization
- Understand immediate and follow-up success rates of SRA embolization
