Peripheral Vascular Disease Monitoring and Treatment

Treatment programs are tailored to each individual and take into account the needs of the patient and family. The treatment will depend on factors such as the severity of the symptoms, the degree of arterial narrowing or blockage and the patient’s overall health. Treatment for patients with PVD is provided in three areas: controlling risk factors through lifestyle changes and medication; endovascular therapy or surgery to reopen arteries to the legs or arms; specialized care for patients with PVD who have open wounds or vascular ulcers that won’t heal.
