PVD, or atherosclerotic vascular disease, is an extremely common disease among people in first world countries. The disease affects the arterial tree at multiple locations including the legs, abdomen/pelvis, heart and neck. PVD may present with stenosis, occlusion or thromboembolism that result in decreased blood flow, or aneurysm disease.
Our unit specalizes in all catheter based endovascular therapies, which allows patients to avoid conventional open surgery and are ideally suited for treating many of the complications of PVD. Both stents and stent grafts can be inserted when needed in in order to achieve maximum clinical benefit.
We have gained unique expertise in treating many complex conditions such as renal artery stenosis, abdominal aortic aneurysms and occlusive disease leading to foot ulceration or rest pain, particularly in diabetic patients who have been excluded from other forms of therapy.
