PAD Treatment in Rogers

Peripheral Artery Disease

What is Peripheral Artery Disease?

Peripheral Artery Disease stems from a gradual thickening of an artery's lining due to plaque buildup

By shrinking these arteries' diameter, blood flow can be slowed or blocked which in turn reduces circulation and blood flow to important tissues and organs. Your extremities, especially your legs are the most perceptibly affected by Peripheral Artery Disease.

Causes of PAD

It's estimated that nearly 65 million people over the age of 40 in the U.S. have PAD.

Aging can be a huge component of the "hardening of the arteries", but that's not the only risk factor for PAD. Those that seek PAD treatment in Rogers may also have a smoking habit, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, struggle with obesity, or have borderline kidney failure.

Symptoms of PAD

The most common early symptom of PAD is heavy fatigue or muscle cramps walking short distances.

Other symptoms can include pain in your feet or toes while sitting or laying down. If disease has progressed, open ulcers or wounds may develop on the feet or toes.

Our Treatments

Dr. Stout has done thousands of angioplasty cases during his vast career as a vascular surgeon.

Angioplasty

Angioplasty is commonly performed by Dr. Stout for PAD treatment in Rogers. Angioplasty is the process of inserting a catheter, and removing build-up of plaque and any other material causing the blockage in a certain artery. This is an outpatient procedure that can be completed in our Office Based Lab with minimal downtime.

Angioplasty and Stenting

Stenting

Stenting is utilized by Dr. Stout when a narrowed artery needs some extra support to be held open. A flexible, mesh tube is set in place to allow blood flow to return to normal. A stenting procedure is done in our Office Based Vascular Lab in Rogers, with minimal downtime.
