Case of the Day – Dr. Bisharat

Case of the Day - Dr. BisharatCase of the Day:

This patient came in with a completely occluded femoral artery. Dr. Mohannad Bisharat and the cath lab staff at AHV were able to open the femoral artery and restore blood flow. The patient was able to go home a few hours after the outpatient procedure.

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a common circulatory problem in which blocked arteries reduce blood flow to your arms or legs.

When you develop PAD, your extremities cannot receive enough blood flow to keep up with demand. The most common symptom of PAD is leg pain or cramping (claudication).

PAD is also likely a sign of a more widespread accumulation of fatty deposits in your arteries (atherosclerosis) throughout your body. This condition may indicate reduced blood flow to other systems in your body like your heart and brain.
