    Shedding Some Light on Peripheral Angiogram

    Are you wondering what a peripheral angiogram is in the first place? Our knowledgeable team can help you understand the concept and what it involves. In simple terms, it is a test in which we locate narrowed and blocked areas in the arteries. The arteries we work on are responsible for supplying blood to your legs, feet, and sometimes even arms or hands.

    With our peripheral angiogram, we help our patients in The Woodlands, TX, know if they need a surgical treatment to open the affected arteries. We can work on the blocked arteries with this treatment as well!

    Questions About Peripheral Angiogram Diagnostic Test?

    Atherectomy, PTA, and Stents: What Our Process Includes

    Our highly trained doctor will perform the test alongside his expert team. After confirming the day of your appointment, they will instruct you on how to prepare for the test. Generally, we give restrictions on eating, drinking, and meditation. Make sure to follow the instructions for a safe and accurate outcome!

    We care about your comfort, and we do not start the procedure before putting an IV into your arm. Then, we clean and shave the area where our doctor will be performing the procedure. Once we have administered the anesthesia, the test begins. There are three methods we use to perform peripheral angiograms in The Woodlands, TX, which include:

    • With PTA:
      Short for Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty, PTA is a minimally invasive procedure we use to open blocked arteries. Taking guidance from the X-ray video, we use a catheter with a balloon tip. We will effectively flatten any plaque against the artery walls. In a simple test, we will improve your blood flow!
    • With Stent:
      We are well aware of the techniques to restore the blood flow in your arteries. Usually, we proceed with stenting just after the angioplasty balloon. Our specialist will place a tube in the artery to hold it open. And just like that, it helps with blood flow against the blockage!
    • With Atherectomy:
      Another promising solution we have is atherectomy — we incorporate it just before using an angioplasty balloon. Our atherectomy is a process that involves de-bulking, and we use it to remove plaque from a blockage. Depending on your case, Dr. Christopher Van Nguyen will suggest one of the three approaches of atherectomy: rotational, laser, or directional.
