Peripheral Vascular Devices, such as transluminal angioplasty balloon catheter, vascular stents, and aortic stents are some of the most commonly used devices for the treatment of peripheral vascular disease. They are used to treat peripheral arterial or coronary arterial disease and also used in the peripheral endovascular and coronary procedure.
PVD is a slow and progressive circulation disorder caused by the spasms, blockage, or narrowing in the blood vessel. It can affect any blood vessel outside the heart, including the veins, arteries, or lymphatic vessels. Peripheral vascular devices help in the treatment of artery blockages and narrowing, particularly in the peripheral vasculature.
Peripheral Vascular Devices is a blood circulation disorder that affects millions of people every year. It causes the blood vessels outside of the heart and brain to narrow, block, or spasm. This disease can lead to heart attacks, strokes, circulatory collapse, paralysis, heart failure, and more. However, this disease usually takes years to develop, and it is often not recognized until it's too late. Because of this, it is very important to know what this disease is, how it develops, and what the treatment options are. Symptoms of the peripheral vascular disease usually begin in the neck, wrist, or legs, but may include weakness in extremities, chest pain, dizziness, nausea, frequent lightheadedness, or heart palpitations.
Treatment options for the Peripheral Vascular Devices usually include medication, surgery, and alternative treatments. Alternative treatments may include acupuncture, biofeedback, physical therapy, nutrition, homeopathy, and massage therapy. Vascular stents, guidewires, angioplasty balloon catheters, atherectomy devices, aortic stents, chronic total occlusion devices, synthetic surgical grafts, inferior vena cava filters, & embolic protection devices are the most commonly used peripheral vascular devices to treat peripheral vascular diseases. Vascular access devices allow repeated and long-term access to the bloodstream for frequent or regular administration of drugs, such as intravenous antibiotics.
Peripheral venous access is indicated for the administration of drugs, fluids, or nutrients when other routes are unavailable. Central venous access is also indicated if peripheral access is not successful or if hypertonic, irritant, or vasoconstrictor solutions are used. Peripheral vascular devices are used to treat variety of diseases such as coronary artery disease, retinopathy, carotid artery disease, myocardial infarction, unstable angina pectoris, and peripheral artery disease. These devices are used for different purposes but the stent and balloon catheter are commonly used together. The balloon catheter is used to enlarge a narrow opening or passage within the body, while the stent is used to treat narrowed coronary arteries.
Stents are available in many different sizes depending on the need for the patient. A stent that can be used most frequently for this purpose is called a peripheral balloon catheter. A catheter with an inflatable tip which can be expanded especially to hold the catheter in place or expand partly closed or obstructed passage, opening, or vessel called as balloon catheter. Peripheral Vascular Devices are also used to measure the blood flow from arteries and veins. There is an increase in demand for PVD due to its minimally invasive endovascular treatment and rising prevalence of peripheral vascular diseases.
