To treat PAD, Murali Meka, MD, and Bryan Swilley, MD, offer:
This procedure involves a radiologist threading a catheter through the femoral artery of the patient’s groin to reach the blocked arteries in the patient’s leg. From there, the radiologist may inflate a balloon to open the blocked blood vessel. This is a minimally invasive option to treat PAD.
Balloon Angioplasty/Stent Placement
Through angioplasty surgery, a stent, a metal, plastic, or mesh tube, is implanted into the affected artery allowing it to remain open permanently.
A minimally invasive procedure uses a catheter to reach the site of the blockage. There, a small blade or laser is used to remove the arterial plaque – a process that can be repeated to treat additional plaque.
