Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) refers to diseases of blood vessels outside of the heart and brain. It is often a narrowing of vessels that carry blood to the legs, arms, stomach or kidneys. Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) affects a lot of people worldwide. Approximately 12 to 20 percent of patients diagnosed with PAD are 60 years or older. Left untreated, PAD can lead to heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, kidney failure, heart disease, heart failure, or amputation. Peripheral angioplasty is a procedure to open blood vessels to allow oxygen rich blood to flow smoothly through the vessel. This is an attractive alternative to open surgical bypass because it offers a smaller incision, faster healing times, and a reduced risk of complications.
The medical team asks about medical history and allergies of patient. Some tests are required before the surgery to allow the surgeon to control the probable risks. The doctor usually performs angiography before angioplasty. The patients are admitted to hospital from the night before, and since the midnight drinking or eating is forbidden. The doctor prescribes the necessary instructions. It is also necessary to take aspirin and other medicines to dilute blood which is prescribed by doctor before surgery.
