Common Surgical Operations For PAD Treatment – USA Vascular Centers

Slide2:

At our new vascular center in Illinois, we provide a clear diagnosis of your PAD and what treatment options are best suited for you. Depending on the severity of your PAD, you may need to undergo a formal surgical procedure, performed by one of our world-class vascular surgeons. If you believe you are at risk for vascular disease or might have symptoms, there are the four most common surgical operations that are prescribed PAD treatment in Illinois.

Aortobifermoral Bypass:

Aortobifermoral Bypass Suited for patients’ whose Peripheral Artery Disease is affecting the abdominal artery, this bypass surgery is the last-resort option for doctors. A graft is used to construct an alternative path for blood flow so it does not require to move through the diseased artery. The synthetic material used in the graft is placed in your body permanently and will act as a new “blood vessel .”

Femoral Popliteal Bypass:

Femoral Popliteal Bypass Nicknamed “Femo-Pop Bypass”, this procedure redirects blood flow in arteries either above or below the knees. Unlike other bypass surgeries, a graft is not used to create a new blood flow path. This redirector is made by removing an artery from another part of the body and using that as the new blood vessel.

Endarterectomy:

Endarterectomy While not commonly practiced in patients with PAD, Endarterectomy is a procedure used to remove plaque from arteries in and around the groin and upper thighs. This procedure increases blood flow and can be performed simultaneously with other operations, such as Stent Angioplasty.

Femoral-Tibial Bypass :

Femoral-Tibial Bypass For patients who experience severe pain in their feet and ankles due to PAD, this operation is the best surgical option. Like Aortobifermoral Bypass, a graft is used to create a new blood vessel and redirect blood around the diseased artery.
