Arterial Atherectomy in Rogers

Minimally Invasive Atherectomy

An arterial atherectomy is one of the most common vascular procedures utilized to remove harmful plaque from arteries.

Dr. Stout specializes in all vascular procedures outside of the heart, at our full vascular office based lab.

We use this procedure to remove atherosclerosis in blood vessels that are slowing down or blocking blood flow in the body. This process uses a tool that either has a tiny blade or laser on the tip of a catheter to effectively eliminate blockages. Different from an angioplasty, Dr. Stout may recommend an atherectomy instead depending on each individual's needs.

The catheter is inserted at the appropriate access point into the artery, while the patient is under local anesthesia.

This procedure is often used to treat difficult instances of peripheral artery disease (PAD), when someone has previously had an angioplasty or stent in place.

In certain cases, Dr. Stout may prefer to use the tip with the blade for arteries that are particularly hardened in order to achieve best results.

Another option for an arterial atherectomy in Rogers, Arkansas is a catheter wire with a laser tip, that can be used to vaporize the plaque causing lack of or blockage of blood flow.

How it Works

01/03

Pre-Procedure

We always ask you show up at least 30 minutes before your appointment so we can get you checked in, triple-check your health history, allergies, and get you changed into a surgical gown. Our team will then shave and sterilize the access area. Once everything is in order, we will begin an IV for sedation pre-procedure.

The Atherectomy

Dr. Stout will begin by inserting the thin, flexible catheter into the target artery and continue carefully guiding it through the arterial system to the point of the blockage. He then will utilize ultrasound and x-ray imaging to pinpoint the narrowed or blocked artery. The atherosclerosis is then either cut away with the blade, or vaporized by the laser at the tip of the catheter.

Post-Procedure

After an atherectomy, we will want to monitor your for at least one hour after the procedure to make sure your blood pressure, incision, and vitals are normal. We will provide food, water, and entertainment while you recover for you and any family or friends that are with you. We ask that you have a driver to take you home and refrain from driving, or signing any major legal documents until 24 hours after the procedure due to the anesthesia. Full post-procedure instructions will be provided before you leave.

"Top notch treatment"

Dr. Haney and his staff are the best. I have had an excellent outcome with my procedure with very little discomfort. The worst part is wearing the compression hose, but it's only for a short time! I will definitely recommend Dr. Haney to my friends and family!

– Julie R.

Everyone that worked with me through this procedure was very kind and explained what all I would experience. They always made sure I was comfortable. I knew I was in the hands of a very competent staff. Dr. Haney was extremely nice and explained the procedure in great detail and always answered any questions I had. I would highly recommend the Ozark Regional Vein & Artery Center.

"Answered Prayers!"

I have had a rather long journey through the medical system trying to find the proper treatment for bad veins. My husband and I really prayed for answers AND we found them through Dr. Haney and his competent staff. We are so thankful for all of them coming to my rescue and getting me on the track I needed to be! I would give Ozark Regional Vein & Artery Center a 10-star if that was a choice above! Highly skilled, highly knowledgeable and the best patient care I have ever had. I cannot say enough good things about my experience! IF you have varicose vein problems, please do yourself a favor and only go to someone skilled in that area, which Dr. Haney is!

" After 3 other vein specialists, Dr. Haney and staff made my decision easy."

The willingness to explain actions prior or the ability to take the time to explain through their responses to my questions was paramount to my decision to follow through with the actual procedures. I was made to feel comfortable, and not ashamed of my condition around personnel in the office. I enjoyed my visits, and actually looked forward to attending my appointments. Thank you very much to each and every one of you who worked on my case! 

– Shawn T. 

"Forever grateful!"

Staff and Dr. Haney are the best! I am definitely a fan of the practice and am amazed and the new services they offer. Had problems with the surface veins in both legs not working due to a genetic disorder. Dr. Haney and team were able to resolve my issues with little to no pain and time. I will forever be grateful for the work they did!❤️
