Peripheral Vascular Interventions

Peripheral vascular interventions encompass a range of procedures aimed at treating blockages or narrowing in the blood vessels outside the heart and brain. These interventions primarily focus on arteries supplying blood to the arms, legs, and abdomen. Common conditions addressed through peripheral vascular interventions include peripheral artery disease (PAD), deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and arterial aneurysms.

Our Peripheral Vascular Interventions Expertise

At our practice, we specialize in peripheral vascular interventions, offering expertise in various minimally invasive procedures to restore blood flow and alleviate symptoms associated with vascular conditions. Our skilled team, led by experienced vascular specialists, utilizes state-of-the-art technologies and advanced techniques to ensure optimal outcomes for our patients.

Benefits of Peripheral Vascular Interventions

Enhanced Blood Flow

Peripheral vascular interventions restore proper blood circulation, alleviating symptoms like leg pain and numbness, and reducing the risk of serious complications.

Minimally Invasive Techniques

Utilizing advanced minimally invasive procedures, these interventions involve small incisions, leading to quicker recovery times, less discomfort, and lower risk of complications compared to traditional surgeries.

Improved Quality of Life

By addressing vascular issues promptly, peripheral vascular interventions help prevent further deterioration of health, ensuring patients can lead active and fulfilling lives with reduced pain and increased mobility.

The Peripheral Vascular Interventions Procedure

The procedure for peripheral vascular interventions typically involves the following steps:


Before the procedure, the patient will be prepared by the medical team. This may include administering local anesthesia or sedation, depending on the type of intervention.


The vascular specialist will access the affected blood vessel through a small incision made in the skin. This access point is usually in the groin area, but it can also be in the arm or foot, depending on the specific location of the blockage or narrowing.

Guidewire Placement

A thin guidewire is inserted through a catheter and guided to the site of the blockage or narrowing under fluoroscopic guidance. This wire serves as a pathway for the catheter and other devices to reach the target area.


A contrast dye is injected through the catheter, and X-ray imaging (angiography) is performed to visualize the blood vessels and identify the location and severity of the blockage or narrowing.


Depending on the findings from the angiography, various interventions may be performed to address the vascular issue. This could include balloon angioplasty to widen the narrowed vessel or the placement of a stent to keep the artery open.


Throughout the procedure, the patient's vital signs, including heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen levels, are closely monitored by the medical team.


After the intervention is completed, the catheter is removed, and the access site is closed using pressure, a closure device, or manual compression.


The patient is monitored in a recovery area for a period of time to ensure there are no complications. Depending on the complexity of the procedure and the patient's condition, they may be discharged home the same day or kept overnight for observation.
