PAD Treatments & Diagnosis Process
The relief you can count on, the treatment you need.
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) can affect your physical well-being, especially if you have difficulty walking.
The good news is that you can reduce and eliminate symptoms with the proper PAD treatment.
At Texas Endovascular, we specialize in diagnosing and treating PAD based on your individual needs.
Learn more about our diagnosis and treatment process, and the minimally-invasive PAD treatment options available at Texas Endovascular.
PAD is usually diagnosed in the office with a bedside test called an Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI). This test uses ultrasound and blood pressure cuffs to evaluate the circulation in your arms and legs.
If this test is abnormal, we may order further imaging tests such as Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) or Computed Tomography (CT) to determine the extent of your problem and help us plan your treatment.
Minimally Invasive PAD Treatment
At Texas Endovascular, we are passionate about treating patients who suffer from this condition and use the most state-of-the-art equipment available for PAD treatment.
Using minimally invasive procedures that do not require an overnight hospital stay, our team provides treatments such as
These methods prevent large incisions and open surgery. As a result, patients are often discharged the same day with minimal recovery time needed.
A small IV and wire will be inserted through the groin during your procedure. Once a blood vessel has been accessed, they will use imaging to guide the wire into position past the affected artery. The diseased artery will be treated using a balloon to widen the blood vessel (angioplasty) or a stent to hold open the vessel and increase blood flow.
Treatment style is selected depending on each patient’s unique circumstances.
