As you age, you can experience degenerative diseases such as peripheral artery disease (PAD) and osteoarthritis of the knee. These problems are not unusual, but they can significantly affect your quality of life. Additionally, if you have underlying conditions, it can be complicated to discover the treatment that truly makes a difference. To find experts who specialize in minimally invasive PAD and osteoarthritis treatment, look no further than AVA Vascular for solutions that will help you recover and maintain optimal health for the lifestyle you desire.
As fatty plaques accumulate in arteries, they narrow and can handle less blood flow – causing peripheral artery disease. Since this most often impacts leg arteries, you may notice symptoms of pain and cramping, which can start mild but grow in intensity. The restricted blood flow that happens when a patient has PAD can also cause nonhealing sores, stubborn infections, and the threat of amputation if untreated. AVA specializes in outpatient treatments that can help reopen circulation, which can speed up healing, decrease pain, and stop more serious developments.
Often referred to as “wear and tear” arthritis, osteoarthritis of the knee is often tackled with injections, physical therapy, and medications. However, often these methods do not provide the hoped-for relief and are often followed by knee replacement surgery, which can be intense. Patients are not always interested in this more risky procedure and sometimes are unable due to costs or health conditions, but there are often no other options available. However, there now exists an interventional radiological treatment called genicular artery embolization (GAE). Preventing blood flow to the knee lining (synovium), this procedure can reduce pain and return mobility without knee replacement surgery.
