To prepare for this procedure, your child must limit food and beverage intake. If your child is able to tolerate solids or liquids, make sure to stop:
- Solid foods eight hours before the scheduled time of the procedure
- Clear liquids four hours before the scheduled time of the procedure
You and your child will report to Same Day Surgery one to two hours before the start of the procedure, where he / she will be prepared for surgery.
Parents will be escorted with your child to the interventional radiology suite, where you will meet the radiologist. The anesthesiologist will place a soft mask over your child's face with "sleepy gas." When your child falls asleep, you will be escorted to the Surgery Waiting Area until the procedure is complete.
