However your summer plans can become quickly changed if you suffer from Peripheral Artery Disease. Also referred to as PAD peripheral artery disease is a vascular disease where your arteries become blocked with excess fats and cholesterol. This buildup can be caused by a number of reasons including poor diet smoking and your genetics. Yet there are certain people who are more prone to developing PAD than others. These include men who are over 50 years of age people with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes and those with high blood pressure. Likewise if left untreated PAD can lead to other more severe health risks such as blood clots.

At the USA Vascular Centers our experienced vascular specialists provide peripheral artery disease treatment for hundreds of patients every year. With more clinics and practices than anyone else it’s never been easier to receive effective vascular disease treatment For patients who are searching for a vascular center in Florida we offer a wide variety of PAD treatment options that will help you regain your life quickly. Peripheral artery disease is one of the leading causes for leg and arm amputations in the United States. This is due to the fact blood cannot flow properly throughout your body reaching areas such as your legs feet arms and hands. When blood flow is restricted blood can pool and collect in parts of your body causing damage to the surrounding tissue. As the tissue deteriorates the affected parts of your body begin to decay. If severe enough and peripheral artery disease treatment is no longer effective an amputation is necessary. In order to combat this serious risk our vascular specialists perform a minimally invasive yet highly effective non-surgical procedure called Stent Angioplasty. This procedure is a simple way to unblock clogged arteries allowing blood to flow normally again. Stent angioplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure and patients go home the same day. Likewise the procedure takes less time than surgical options such as vein stripping and has proven to be overall more effective. How stent angioplasty works is simple your vascular surgeon inserts a catheter into the blocked artery and releases a small metal stent. At the blockage the stent pushes the excess fat and cholesterol away allowing blood flow to resume as normal This procedure is an easy way to treat most symptoms of peripheral artery disease and is used to prevent more severe health risks such as amputations and blood clots. Don’t let PAD ruin your summer holiday plays If you believe you might be suffering from peripheral artery disease and would like to visit a vascular center in Florida contact one of our clinics today to schedule your first consultation.
