Understanding Arterial Revascularization
Desert Vein and Vascular Institute is a highly certified and credentialed medical center that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of vein and vascular disorders. PAD occurs when plaque builds up on the walls of major arteries or the vessels become completely blocked. This tends to cause vascular conditions of the leg for most which requires lower extremity revascularization. Once we know patients are experiencing symptoms of blocked arteries, we put together a peripheral artery disease treatment plan in order to eliminate or relieve their symptoms.
Symptoms That May Require Arterial Revascularization
Some of the most telling signs of Peripheral Artery Disease involve intermittent claudication (leg pain with walking or activity).
- Weakness or numbness in legs.
- Nonexistent or weak pulse in legs.
- Painful cramps during exercise.
- Losing hair on your legs.
- Cold or discolored lower limbs.
- Lower limb sores that heal slowly.
- Subsided pain after an activity.
- Decreased toenail growth.
What to Expect Leading up To Your PAD Procedure With DVVI
Before we get started with your arterial revascularization treatment plan, we ask you to complete an Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI), a physical exam and a full medical history evaluation. This non-invasive process helps us identify the severity of the disease so we can properly diagnose and treat your symptoms. The results of your initial evaluation allows us to determine if further testing (such as an Arterial Doppler Ultrasound, Magnetic Resonance Angiogram or Computed Tomography Angiogram) is necessary.
Once you’ve been thoroughly diagnosed, we can begin to develop a treatment plan that makes sense. By providing you with a number of treatment options, we’re able to stop the progression of atherosclerosis and help you resume physical activities that have been limited by your condition.
