Lower Limb Arterial Occlusive Disease

 

How Peripheral Arterial Occlusive Disease Occurs:
Peripheral arterial occlusive disease results from the vascular aging, atherosclerosis or thrombosis, when vascular stenosis or occlusion occur and in the end patients are suffered from ischemic disease.

 

   Different Arteries

  • Iliac artery, femoral artery, popliteal artery: ischemic lower limbs

  • Renal artery: ischemic nephropathy

  • Subclavian artery, axillary artery, brachial artery: ischemic upper limbs

  • Carotid artery: ischemic cerebrovascular disease

  • Visceral arteries: ischemia bowel

 

HEALTH PLANS
  • DIAGNOSE

 

 

 

  • CONVENTIONAL TREATMENT

 

 

 

  • Minimally Invasive Endovascular Surgery

 

 

 

  • NON OPERATING TREATMENT

 

 

 

High-risk group

  • Elderly

  • Family history of cardiovascular disease

  • Hyperlipidemia

  • Hypertension

  • Diabetes

  • Smoker

  • Obesity

  • Patients with cardiovascular disease

 

Fontaine Classification

  • Stage I:No symptom

  • Stage II:

            A:Mild intermittent claudication

            B:Severe intermittent claudication

  • Stage III: Pain during the night and resting

  • Stage IV: Necrosis and gangrene

This technology can be applied to reduce the invasiveness.
