Arterial Treatments

Revolutionary Treatments

United Vein & Vascular Centers has revolutionized the treatment of Peripheral Arterial Disease by providing Office-Based Labs (OBL) to its patients. Our exclusive OBL’s allow our vascular specialists to perform minimally invasive arterial treatments in an outpatient setting.

With the growth of image-guided procedural innovation in vascular care, United Vein & Vascular Centers can perform procedures in its OBL that would have required major surgery a generation ago. These procedures can be carried out with small incisions that result in faster recovery times and more efficient care.

Arterial Treatments

Exercise Therapy

Exercise is a first-line therapy for PAD and is a supervised exercise program such as walking several times per week.

Medication Therapy

Medications may be used to control symptoms and reduce the plaque build-up in the arteries.

Angioplasty/Stenting

This is a procedure that involves using a catheter to open narrowed or blocked arteries that supply blood to the legs, increasing blood flow. This may also involve the placement of a stent to maintain the opening of the blood vessel.

Atherectomy

This procedure uses a special catheter to remove plaque build-up from a narrowed blood vessel supplying nutrition to the peripheral tissues.

Bypass Grafting

This process is a surgical procedure where the doctor creates a special graft to redirect blood flow around the blocked blood vessel.

Something bothering you? At United Vein & Vascular Centers, arterial diagnostic procedures are completed in under an hour. You’ll be closer to your solution in no time.

Ankle-brachial index

This is a quick, non-invasive test that measures and compares blood pressure at the ankle to the blood pressure in the arm.

Exercise Ankle-brachial Index

This noninvasive test is performed while the patient is walking on a treadmill to determine the blood pressure in the arm, and blood-flow to the ankle.

Duplex Ultrasound

This non-invasive test uses sound waves to create a color map of the blood vessels and examines the flow in a patient’s legs.

Transcutaneous Pulse Oximetry (TCOM)

This is a local, non-invasive measurement reflecting the amount of oxygen that has diffused from the capillaries through the epidermis or first layer of the skin.

Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA)

This is a computed tomography technique used to visualize arterial and vessels throughout the body.

Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA)

This procedure uses a type of imaging tool that uses magnetic wave and radio energy to locate and measure the severity of a blocked blood vessel.

Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS)

Using a special imaging device that uses a small catheter to examine the interior of the blood vessels and to measure the plaque build-up from within the arteries.
