57 year old male with diabetes and severe Neuropathy. Patient came to me for a second opinion after he was informed that his only option for the non-healing great toe wound was amputation. After a physical exam and screening ultrasound, the patient had an angiogram. The angiogram showed his blood flow was fine up to the toe. At the level of the toe, there was a blockage of the blood flow on the inner side where the non-healing wound was present. After opening up the tiny blood vessels using angioplasty, the patient’s wound began to heal. Within 6 weeks, the wound healed completely and the patient’s neuropathy improved, which also helped him with his balance. This case is a perfect example of how finding the right physician with the proper skill set can prevent amputation. At AVA Vascular our team performs these complex interventions on a regular basis.
At AVA Vascular we use state of the art equipment like the new Zenition Phillips C-arm which reduces radiation dose by 70% compared to the other commonly used equipment in most practices. In combination with the latest technology and many years of expertise, our patients have the best outcome.
