Peripheral Vascular Disease
The arteries of the heart are not the only ones that can become blocked. Any major artery in the body can experience a blockage for any number of reasons. Outside the coronary arteries, the arteries that most frequently experience blockages are to the legs and lower extremities.
The Heart & Vascular Institute of Texas features physicians who are skilled in the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral vascular disease. Using percutaneous interventions similar to interventional cardiology, our team can open blood vessels in other parts of the body.
