TREATMENT OPTIONS

Carotid Artery Disease (TIA / Stroke)

CAD affects the arteries in the neck that supply blood to the brain. Fatty material called plaque can build up inside the carotid arteries, causing them to narrow and reduce blood flow containing oxygen to the brain. This can lead to serious health issues such as memory loss, difficulty with language and vision, paralysis, stroke or even death.

Hemodialysis Access

When a patient with kidney failure needs dialysis, there are many factors to consider before choosing and creating the optimal access.

Aortoilliac / Peripheral Vascular Disease (PAD)

Aortoilliac disease refers to a narrowing or blockage in either the aorta, the iliac arteries or both. This occurs when plaque builds up in the artery walls and reduces or stops the blood from flowing. Plaque is a sticky substance of cholesterol, calcium and fibrous tissue. Plaque can cause arteries to become narrow and stiff, a process called atherosclerosis—also known as hardening of the arteries.

Leg Pain / PAD

PAD is a circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to your limbs. When you develop peripheral artery disease your extremities - usually your legs - don’t receive enough blood flow to keep up with demand.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAA)

AAA is mainly caused by a weak area of the abdominal region of the aorta that fills up with blood and causes it to bulge (aneurysm). Over time, this area can further weaken and rupture, leading to internal bleeding and, in some cases, sudden death.

Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms

TAA is mainly caused by a weak area of the thoracic region of the aorta that fills up with blood and causes it to bulge (aneurysm). Over time, this area can further weaken and rupture, leading to internal bleeding and, in some cases, sudden death.

Varicose Veins / Venous Insufficiency

Venous insufficiency is a condition associated with the inability of the venous system to adequately return blood from the legs back to the heart and lungs.

Lymphedema / Leg Swelling

The swelling that occurs usually in an arm or leg due to malfunction of the lymphatic system.

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

Most commonly, the clots are in an extremity and cause swelling in either the arm or leg. In some patients, the clots may be in more than one vein, but the hallmark of DVT is a swollen arm or leg on either the left or right side.
