Know the warning signs...
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
Peripheral Artery Disease raises your risk of heart attack and stroke. And many people with PAD have no symptoms or mistake their symptoms for something else. So, if you are at risk for PAD or have symptoms, get screened.
• Pain, cramping and discomfort in legs during activity
• Numbness, tingling or weakness in the leg
• Burning or aching pain in feet or toes when resting
• Sore on leg or foot that won’t heal
• Cold legs or feet
• Color change in leg skin or feet
Detect a Silent Killer
Vascular disease, such as stroke and abdominal aortic aneurism, is known as a silent killer because there are often no warning signs until it’s too late.
If you are 50 and older and have risk factors including diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, high blood cholesterol, family history of atherosclerotic / circulatory problems /AAA, then you should be screened.
• Carotid artery ultrasounds to determine blockages
• Abdominal aortic ultrasounds to assess aneurysm risks
• Lower extremity arterial screening to assess peripheral artery disease.
OUR SPECIALTY PRACTICE
Cardiovascular surgeons treat patients with diseases of the heart, lungs, esophogus, diaphragm and great vessels as well as lung and esophageal cancers. Vascular surgery involves either an artery or a vein. When the surgery is done from within the blood vessel, it is called endovascular surgery.
Endovascular surgery is a relatively new, less-invasive procedure for treating the two major problems that can develop in blood vessels: an aneurysm and a narrowing (also called an occlusion or stenosis),
Endovascular surgery treats the problem by using an easily accessible smaller artery to advance a long plastic tube called a catheter to the aneurysm or narrowing. The surgeon is guided by X-ray imaging. Endovascular procedures do not require general anesthesia.
This type of surgery is much easier on the patient..
