What Is Interventional Radiology?
Interventional radiology is a specialized branch of radiology that uses minimally invasive technology to resolve arterial issues like blocked vessels. Interventional radiology is less painful, more cost-effective, and reduces your recovery time to get you back to normal day-to-day activities quicker than traditional vascular surgery.
Using imaging equipment like x-rays, Dr. Daniels can identify the source of your pain. From there, he will create a small opening and use specialized equipment to place a tiny balloon in your blood vessel that slowly expands it and clears any blockages. Finally, he will place a tiny metal cylinder in your blood vessel to keep it open and prevent further blockage complications. The time to leave the hospital varies from patient to patient; however, the typical recovery time is around six hours following your procedure.
Benefits of Interventional Radiology
There are numerous benefits to interventional radiology over traditional vascular surgery. When you contact our office, we'll take the time to explain what the procedure entails and the benefits you can expect from it. Some of the benefits of interventional radiology include:
- Eliminating the need for amputation or surgical bypass
- Decreasing the distance from our tools to the lesion
- Accessing small or previously inaccessible vessels as narrow as 2mm thick
- Reperfusion of the feet with minimal incisions
- Accessing feet from the foot itself
Understanding Peripheral Arterial Disease
Peripheral arterial disease is a common condition that affects millions of Americans each year. The disease develops when there's a buildup of plaque inside your arteries. Plaque can cause your arteries to stiffen, leading to blockages that restrict blood flow and cause pain.
Peripheral arterial disease typically affects your legs and arms. Although some patients may not realize they are dealing with the disease, pain can increase with multiple blockages. Additionally, sleep can cause severe pain as it limits the blood flow throughout your body. Our procedure can help give you the pain relief and sleep you deserve.
7 Signs of Peripheral Arterial Disease
It can be challenging to notice the signs of peripheral arterial disease as most begin subtly before worsening. Additionally, signs of the disease can be similar to other health complications, which makes diagnosis tricky. If you notice one or multiple signs of peripheral arterial disease, contact us immediately. Some common signs include:
- Pain in your lower extremities
- Sores on the skin of your legs and feet
- Loss of hair on your feet and toes
- Aching in your feet when at rest
- Distinct changes in your skin color or temperature
- Burning and tingling in your feet
