A kidney Procedure or arterial embolization according to Johns Hopkins Patients’ Guide to Kidney Cancer is a procedure in which a special spongelike material is placed into an artery that supplies blood to the kidney. A thin tube catheter is inserted into a vessel in the leg and into the main vessel feeding the kidney.

Such a procedure would block the blood supply that feeds the kidney and might be used to stop bleeding from a benign tumor, a small aneurysm or to reverse the growth of such a tumor, according to specialists. The Johns Hopkins guide said it can also be used to make it easier for a surgeon to remove the kidney but is more frequently used to control symptoms for someone who cannot undergo surgery.

Vice President Mike Pence said on Monday that Mrs. Trump’s procedure was “long-planned,” citing her visit to Walter Reed as the reason Mr. Trump had sent him to represent the administration at a reception hosted by the Israeli Embassy to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Israeli independence
