and Stenting for Arterial Occlusive Disease
Angioplasty and stenting are less invasive and have a quicker recovery
time compared to open surgery. The techniques work best when the
diseased portion of the artery is relatively small, and when the
diseased artery is easily accessible with a catheter.
Angioplasty and stenting for occlusive (blocked) arteries are minimally
invasive procedures that can be performed on blockages (occlusions) in
the arteries of the kidneys (renal arteries), intestines (mesenteric
arteries) and lower extremities (femoral, tibial arteries). Angioplasty
and stenting require only local anesthesia and intravenous sedation
(relaxing medications). During angioplasty, a balloon tipped catheter is
inserted through an artery in the groin via a needle puncture. The
catheter is pushed through the artery to the point of occlusion and the
balloon is then inflated, to expand the opening in the artery. This
procedure often improves the blood-flow through the artery.
Sometimes, however, angioplasty does not sufficiently open the artery
and the use of a stent is also required. A stent is a metal support
structure similar to a spring. It is similarly inserted to the point of
occlusion in the artery loaded on the balloon tipped catheter. Once in
place, it is expanded by inflating the balloon, and left permanently in
the artery to provide a reinforced channel through which blood can flow.
Patients generally go home the day after the procedure.
