No cure: Truly there is no cure but we can manage occlusive arterial disease to prevent progression like using anti platelet agents like aspirin, anti cholesterol meds like Lipitor (atorvastatin) , walking , stop smoking . Sometimes endovascular options including balloon angioplasty and stenting is option that is invasive but not like open bypass surgery.
