Peripheral Vascular Balloon Angioplasty and Stent Therapy

Peripheral vascular balloon angioplasty and stenting is an effective interventional treatment for conditions such as peripheral arterial disease (PAD). PAD is a condition caused by narrowing or blockages in the arteries, usually in the legs, which can restrict blood flow and lead to pain, fatigue and even serious complications in the legs.

Peripheral vascular balloon angioplasty is performed by advancing a catheter, usually through the groin or thigh. An expandable balloon on the catheter is inserted into the blocked area and then the balloon is inflated to dilate the vessel. This procedure aims to open the blocked vessel and increase blood flow.

Stenting is another method used to treat blockages due to peripheral artery disease. During the balloon angioplasty procedure, a stent in the form of a wire mesh is inserted into the enlarged vessel. The stent keeps the vessel wide and prevents the blockage from reoccurring.

These procedures are usually performed under local anesthesia and patients can usually be discharged the same day. Peripheral vascular balloon angioplasty and stent treatment can improve blood flow in the legs, relieving symptoms and improving the patient’s quality of life. However, as each patient is different, the treatment plan should be tailored to the patient’s specific condition. These procedures are performed by vascular surgeons or endovascular specialists and patient follow-up is important.
