Feasibility and Safety of Geniculate Artery Embolization for Treatment of Mild to Moderate Knee Osteoarthritis

Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and feasibility of genicular artery embolization using EmbozeneTM microspheres for mild-to-moderate knee osteoarthritis (OA) detected on knee x-ray in patients with knee pain resistant to conservative treatment. Embolization is a minimally invasive surgical technique. The purpose of embolization is to prevent blood flow to an area of the body. Embolization of the geniculate artery will be performed using Embozene™ Microspheres. Embozene™ microspheres are embolization material that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for other indications including arteriovenous malformations (AVM) or tangled blood vessels, certain types of tumors, and embolization of arteries in the prostate for treatment of symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). In this study, Embozene™ microspheres are considered investigational because they are not FDA-approved for embolization of the geniculate artery for the treatment of knee pain in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
