Peripheral Vascular Disease

Heart & Vascular Institute cath-lab interventionalists treat diseases of the blood vessels, which include arteries and veins beyond the heart and brain, with a catheter inserted into the skin (percutaneous).

Peripheral Vascular Disease is often more accurately described as peripheral artery disease because of the frequency of blockages in arteries that supply blood to internal organs, arms and legs. Atherosclerosis, hardening and narrowing of the arteries, can cause a partial or full blockage.
