Peripheral vascular disease is a term used to describe a group of cardiovascular diseases affecting the arteries, veins and aorta. Peripheral vascular disease can occur at any age, but it often affects older adults and people with diabetes. The disease reduces circulation through the arteries leading to the brain, legs, arms, brain, kidneys and/or stomach. This increases the risk of heart attack, stroke, limb amputation and coronary heart disease. It is a common, but serious condition that our cardiologists are experts in managing with vascular disease care.
We have extensive training and experience treating patients with all types of peripheral vascular disease. It is our goal to not only reduce symptoms, but to effectively treat the disease and reduce our patient’s risk of serious complications.
We provide peripheral angiography testing which uses x-rays to help the physician find narrowed or blocked areas in one or more of your arteries. A long, thin tube (catheter) is guided into the arteries and a dye, visible by x-rays, is injected into the bloodstream. Any areas of narrowed or blocked arteries will be seen on a video screen and recorded.
