Peripheral Angioplasty

Peripheral Angioplasty

When a person suffers from hardening of the arteries or atherosclerosis, their arteries are blocked partially by a fatty substance called plaque. When the blood flow is restricted and blockages take place in the legs or arms, they are called peripheral artery disease.

Peripheral vascular interventions remove the plaque and restore the flow of blood through the artery. These procedures are the medical specialities that serve treatment without any surgery of leg or arm. In the initial stage, a patient may experience cramping or fatigue in the legs or buttocks. This sensation can be termed as “intermittent claudication”.

The muscles and other tissues of arm and leg need oxygen and nutrients for functioning. The legs will not work properly and experience the pain or numbness if the arteries that feed them are blocked by plaque. Early diagnoses of peripheral disorders are crucial to prevent major disability and quality of life can be improved.

Peripheral Vascular procedures include:

  1. Angioplasty and Stenting
  2. Atherectomy

A minor discomfort or pain may cause during peripheral vascular procedures. You will be given an anesthesia to insert a Catheter into your groin or arm. It takes about 30 minutes to several hours depending upon the situation. After the procedure, a one or two-day stay in hospital is suggested for fast recovery and compassionate care.

These procedures are recommended only if other medication treatment, change in lifestyle and drug therapy fails to give desirable results. The procedure is assisted by high-end technology and advanced equipment.
