In brief: Peripheral Vascular

Peripheral vascular disease can be treated in many variety of ways depending on the severity, location, and symptoms involved.
Medications may be indicated to improve the blood flow. Balloon angioplasty and stenting are very common procedures for the disease. Sometime a bypass surgery of the arteries is needed, especially in the most severe cases. Artery atherectomy is another possible option.
