Non-Surgical Treatment To Improve Leg Circulation


Non-Surgical Treatment To Improve Leg Circulation


Description:

Pain in the legs and feet, wounds that do not heal and even amputation - all of these complications can be brought on by peripheral vascular disease (PVD). Background Pain in the legs and feet, wounds that do not heal and even amputation - all of these complications can be brought on by peripheral vascular disease or PVD. PVD is a disease of the blood vessels like coronary artery disease of the heart, most commonly characterized by a build-up of plaque in the arteries that supply the legs and feet. It affects approximately 12 million people in the U.S. In the past, doctors have resorted to bypass surgery to restore leg and foot circulation. Now, a new minimally-invasive technique can shave away the plaque, without surgery. In this VNR, you'll hear from a patient who had the treatment, as well as a cardiovascular diseases expert who performs the procedure. Soundbites include: Dr. Khusrow Niazi/Cardiovascular Disease Expert at Emory Crawford Long Hospital; and Ethelene Saffo/PVD Patient More Information Emory Healthcare - Treatment of Peripheral Arterial Disease http://www.emoryhealthcare.org/vascular/peripheral-arterial-disease.html Emory Healthcare - Vascular Surgery & Endovascular Therapy http://www.emoryhealthcare.org/vascular/
