Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a type of heart disease. While not uncommon, PAD is often under-recognized and under-treated in women, who are more likely to present with the disease 10-20 years later than men. For many women, the journey to a PAD diagnosis and treatment may involve various doctors, lack of information and dealing with additional health concerns at the same time.
At Fusion Vascular, we diagnose and treat PAD. PAD is caused by arteries to the legs becoming blocked with cholesterol plaque, the same way arteries in the heart become clogged and cause a heart attack. This is a common problem that affects many people in the United States. PAD can cause leg pain and fatigue with walking; in its worst form, it can lead to amputations. We treat the entire spectrum of PAD with a particular passion for limb salvage—preventing amputations in people who have previously been given no other options. Our goal is to give you your legs back, so that you may enjoy your life. again.

Limb salvage refers to going to all lengths to prevent amputation in patients that have non-healing wounds on their feet. We can often treat you when have had no options in the past.
Many patients with Diabetes, Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), and other illnesses causing nerve damage or poor blood circulation often experience slow or non-healing foot wounds due to the decreased blood supply. These wounds can not only be difficult to treat, but can also persist after weeks of cleaning, antibiotics, and hyperbaric oxygen. If the wounds are left untreated, they can also lead to complications such as infection, gangrene and amputation. Limb salvage treatment exists to treat these recurring circulation issues before amputation is considered, and is often a successful alternative for those who had no other options in the past. “Wound care and limb salvage requires a team approach of healthcare providers. Fusion Vascular works closely with the wound clinics and your referring physicians to give you the best possible outcome. We are dedicated to doing everything possible to prevent an amputation.”
Angioplasty (also called percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, or PTA) is a procedure in which a thin, flexible tube called a catheter is inserted through an artery and guided to the place where the artery is narrowed.
When the tube reaches the narrowed artery, a small balloon at the end of the tube inflates for a short time. The pressure from the inflated balloon presses the fat and calcium (plaque) against the wall of the artery to improve blood flow.
Atherectomy is a term used to describe removing the plaque from the artery. This technique is often used in conjunction with a balloon and a stent. The catheters are directed into position using x-ray movie equipment to treat the blockage in the artery. There are different types of atherectomy catheters that use different means to remove the plaque, some devices are better for certain situations depending on the composition. of the plaque.
