Peripheral Vascular Services

Our interventional cardiologists are highly skilled and trained in catheter-based treatment of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). By using a catheter, we avoid making large surgical cuts when we remove the blockage. As a result, procedures that rely on a catheter generally decrease pain, pose less risk of infection, avoid large scars and shorten recovery times. In some cases, the patient may go home the same day. During a peripheral vascular intervention, you will have anesthesia, so the discomfort and pain will be minor. It may be a local anesthetic, so you won’t feel much discomfort where a small catheter is inserted into your groin or arm. You will remain awake and be able to follow the instructions.


We use a catheter to guide a small, unfilled balloon to the site of the blockage. The balloon is inflated, pressing the plaque tight against the wall of the artery. After the balloon is removed, the opening in the artery is wider, and blood can flow more freely to the heart muscles.


After angioplasty, the catheter may be used to place a small mesh tube, called a stent, into the site of the blockage. The stent works to keep the plaque packed against the wall of the blood vessel and the artery propped open.


In this procedure, we remove the plaque from the artery by using a catheter and directing a very small device with tiny blades that can precisely shave the plaque from the artery wall while safely collecting it. In some cases, we may use a tiny laser that blasts the plaque into small pieces that dissolve in the blood. One advantage of these approaches is that no medical device is left in the body after the completion of the procedure.
