Minimally Invasive Solutions For PAD: Angioplasty & Stenting

Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is a vascular condition where arteries in the lower extremities become narrowed or blocked due to atherosclerotic plaque. This can lead to pain during walking and, in severe cases, gangrene and limb loss. Traditional surgeries can be invasive and require longer recovery. However our minimally invasive treatments  are highly effective in restoring blood flow, alleviating PAD symptoms, and offer quicker recovery with fewer complications.

Key Aspects of Angioplasty and Stenting

Understanding PAD

PAD is caused by plaque build-up, restricting blood flow to the legs. Symptoms include calf or thigh pain when walking that is relieved with rest. More severe cases may present as rest pain, non healing wounds/ gangrene, with risk of limb loss.

What is Angioplasty?

Angioplasty is a procedure where a balloon attached to a catheter is inflated at a blockage site in the artery, deflated and removed. This improves the blood flow in the  artery, resulting in improved symptoms.

Stenting Explained

If angioplasty is not sufficient to adequately the improve the blood flow, stenting will be warranted.  A stent is a small mesh tube that is placed in the artery to keep it open. This ensures optimal blood flow, reducing the risk of the artery narrowing again. 

Recovery Insights

Post-intervention, patients may feel mild soreness. Light activities are recommended, with a brief pause on strenuous exercises. Essential post-care includes a heart-healthy diet, regular exercise, and adherence to prescribed medications.

Benefits Over Traditional Surgeries

Quick Recovery

Angioplasty and stenting are less invasive, leading to faster recovery times. Patients typically return home the same day, unlike traditional surgeries which might require extended hospital stays. This means less disruption to daily life.

Targeted Treatment

These procedures are especially effective for complex procedures involving smaller arteries, specifically, when dealing with non healing wounds and or risk of limb loss.  New technologies allow for direct revascularization to the non healing wound improving outcomes compared to traditional surgeries.

Reduced Risks

With angioplasty and stenting, there's a decreased risk of complications compared to traditional surgeries. The minimally invasive nature of these procedures means fewer complications, making them a safer choice for many patients.

Consultation and Expert Care for PAD Conditions

Choosing the right treatment for PAD is vital. Our vascular specialists, with their expertise in angioplasty and stenting, ensure patients receive the best care. From evaluation to post-operative management, their comprehensive approach guarantees optimal patient outcomes and improved quality of life.

Lifestyle Changes Post-Procedure

After the procedure, lifestyle changes enhance the treatment's success. Smoking cessation, compliance with prescribed medications, adopting a heart-healthy diet, and regular exercise are essential to optimize the longevity of the treatment's effectiveness.
