Care for Peripheral Arterial Occlusive Disease



    Given that patients with their limbs amputated often suffer from severe physical and psychological traumas, and that the caring of these patients significantly increases medical and manpower expenditures, we have adopted limb salvage as an alternative to amputation by using endovascular treatment to clear clogged arteries. Since its establishment, our Division of Angiography and Interventional Radiology has kept improving relevant techniques to provide better services to our patients. Over the years, we have developed a variety of innovative techniques to increase the success rate of endovascular treatment.


    1.To perform arterial angioplasty surgery for patients with lower extremity arterial occlusion, we use ultrasound guidance and multiple innovative techniques to facilitate the insertion of balloon catheters and stents to treat lower extremity arterial disease.

    2.Subintimal angioplasty is performed to increase the success rate of the treatment.

    3.A TIPS needle is used in combination with cone-beam CT to guide the re-entry.

    4.A continuous infusion of urokinase is applied to dissolve blood clots in end capillaries, thereby increasing the success rate of the surgery.

    5.Doppler ultrasound is used to measure blood volume flow in postoperative follow-ups.
