- Agreement for possible cessation of anticoagulants and antiplatelet agents is made individually.
- Any fasting ahead is agreed individually for each patient. Some sedation is common in addition to local anesthesia. If the patient requires deep sedation/sleep, fasting for 6 hours before the procedure is necessary.
- Prone, supine, or lateral position. Anterior access is primarily used when the patient cannot lie on their abdomen or the lateral decubitus position or when anatomical conditions do not allow posterior access.
