Arterial Disease Doctor in Rogers

What is Arterial Disease?

Arterial Disease Explained

Arterial disease affects nearly 20 million Americans, and many don't know they have a problem.

Arterial disease is basically a build up of plaque, cholesterol, and other elements in our arteries that develop as people age. Overtime, especially if unhealthy lifestyle choices are present - these blockages worsen and strangle the blood supply to the muscles. When blood can't get to the muscles, the muscles ache and fatigue much quicker than they should.

It’s important to know what risk factors for artery disease you can control, and the ones you can’t.

Two of the main vascular diseases that Dr. Stout specializes in are Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAA) and Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD).

The most common risk factors for arterial disease include:

  • High cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • High blood pressure
  • Smoking
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Family history
  • Age
  • Obesity
  • Physical inactivity
  • High saturated fat diet

Unfortunately, PCP’s often overlook signs and symptoms of arterial disease. Knowing what to look for can save your life.

Symptoms of Arterial Disease often include:

  • Decreased lower leg temperature
  • Difficulty ambulating or pain while walking
  • Toe or foot wounds that will not heal or heal very slowly
  • The change of your skin color on your legs to purple or blue
  • Gangrene
  • Thin, shiny skin
  • Hair loss on your legs

When seeking an arterial disease doctor in Rogers, consider Dr. Stout at Ozark Regional Vein & Artery Center for the following:

Angioplasty & Stenting

When plaque and cholesterol build up in the arteries, the best approach often includes angioplasty & stenting procedures. An angioplasty can be done to expand an artery and clear out the build up causing blockages, allowing blood to flow normally again. Stenting may be combined with an angioplasty, to permanently hold open an artery with a tiny mesh tube.

Arterial Atherectomy

Atherectomies are a common approach for removing atherosclerosis from arteries, allowing blood to flow normally again.

Deep Venous Stenting

Some patients at risk or experiencing DVTs may be a candidate for deep venous stenting. May-Thurner Syndrome, and other venous issues can be corrected with this procedure, if done by an expert like Dr. Stout.

Embolizations

Our team may suggest a form of embolization to block a damaged blood vessel to prevent aneurysms, PE, stroke, and more. Embolization Therapy may come in the form of tiny microspheres, or a coil.
