Peripheral Arterial Disease is also known as Peripheral Vascular Disease that affects the arteries. The narrowed arteries will reduce blood flow to your limbs and can lead to the death of the tissue.
Diabetic patients with reduced blood flow are having high risk of losing the foot when they develop foot ulcers
Nothing will work in a foot when there is no blood flow to the foot.
Best footCare would be to avoid injuries to the foot through preventive foot Care.
It is estimated that more than 30% of diabetic patients are at higher risk of heart attack, stroke, hypertension, pain in feet and other chronic conditions depending on the location of the narrowed artery.
The blockage of arteries reduces blood flow to that particular part. Blockage in legs is a common problem in diabetics. The problem becomes more severe with aging.
The surgeon will evaluate the blockage upon the clinical situation. The first test is an ultrasound doppler scan that helps the doctors to access the state of arterial circulation. We can also check the blood flow in our Foot Carecentre using hand held doppler in few seconds.
An angiogram is performed in case of severe block or tissue loss to plan for further interventional procedure called angioplasty where we try to open up the blood vessels using special balloons, stents in specialized cath lab.
Blocked arteries in the leg are treated successfully at Madurai Foot Care Center using non-surgical and surgical procedures . The best treatment option can be decided after the evaluation of the patient.
Some patients with kidney diseases may not be for for endovascular procedures. In those patients amputations meat be the only option to save the patient.
