Most treatments for PAD, especially in the early stages, can be in office and is minimally invasive. The goal of treatments is twofold: to manage symptoms which involves risk factor modification, lifestyle changes and sometimes medical therapy and to stop the progression of atherosclerosis throughout the body to lower risks of major cardiac and limb events. It is important to know that PAD is not treated surgically or endovascularly unless there is a threat of tissue loss or significant impact on lifestyle, health and well-being.
These goals may be achieved, particularly early in the progression of a patient’s PAD, in-office.
The procedures that are available in-office include:
