Carotid Arterial Surgery

Carotid arterial surgery (CEA) is performed to restore regular blood flow to the brain and facial area and prevent the possibility of stroke. Carotid arteries can become blocked by plaque or blood clots and can lead to strokes and transient ischemic attacks (TIA). This type of surgery opens or cleans the carotid artery, thus returning proper blood flow to the brain.

If you've experienced the following, we may recommend carotid arterial surgery:
  • Stroke
  • Transient Ischemic Attacks (TIA)
  • Severe Blockage Of Your Carotid Artery

Treatments Include:

  • Endarterectomy
  • Stent

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)

Every year, more than 200,000 Americans are diagnosed with an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). When the wall of a blood vessel weakens, a balloon-like dilation called an aneurysm sometimes develops. An abdominal aortic aneurysm happens most often in the abdominal aorta, an essential blood vessel that supplies blood to your legs and the rest of your body. A ruptured AAA is a serious condition and is the 15th leading cause of death in the US. At Arizona Endovascular Center, our goal with aneurysm surgery is to prevent the aorta from rupturing.

Peripheral Arterial Disease

Does your leg hurt or give out when you climb stairs or take a stroll? Pain or Fatigue in your buttock or calf may be due to peripheral artery disease. Because this condition reduces blood flow to your lower body, your muscles cramp during activity. There's no magic cure for peripheral artery disease. But, lifestyle changes and medical treatment can help you become more active again and may prevent progression of the disease.

Symptoms May Include:
  • Painful Cramping in Lower Extremities
  • Cycles of Pain (Claudication)
  • Leg numbness or weakness
  • Coldness in your lower leg or foot, especially when compared with the other side
  • Sores on your toes, feet or legs that won't heal
  • A change in the color of your legs
  • Hair loss or slower hair growth on your feet and legs

Renal Arterial Disease

Renal artery disease may be defined as a narrowing of the blood supply to the kidneys. When the kidneys have a normal blood supply, they filter toxins from the blood and help to keep blood pressure in the normal range. When the renal artery disease affects the kidneys, it can lead to severe high blood pressure (hypertension), poor kidney function or even kidney failure and dialysis.

Causes of Renal Artery Disease

Renal Artery Disease is most often caused by either atherosclerosis (also called "hardening of the arteries") or fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD). When atherosclerosis or FMD affects the kidney, it can cause uncontrolled high blood pressure. The condition is known as renovascular hypertension
