Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) Treatment Options

PAD and CLI Treatment Options

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a threatening condition in which there is inadequate blood flow of oxygen to a patient’s legs due to clogged, narrowed, or blocked arteries. Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) is the advanced stage of Peripheral Arterial Disease, which can often lead to tissue loss and eventually amputation if left untreated.

Dr. Julio Sanguily III is a national pioneer in this field and has developed advanced techniques to deliver highly effective therapy in a minimally invasive manner. Dr. Sanguily has performed thousands of peripheral angiograms over his 25+ years of practicing vascular medicine, allowing him to become an expert in the treatment of PAD and CLI cases.

Medication for PAD

Antihypertensives and Statins (lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels)

Antiplatelet (prevent platelets from sticking) Aspirin, Plavix

Anticoagulants (thins blood and prevents recurrence of disease)
Xarelto, Eloquis, Coumadin

Minimally Invasive Treatment Options for PAD


Angiograms are minimally invasive diagnostic procedure used to confirm the presence of disease. In this procedure, the doctor will enter your artery through a small opening in the skin and guide a wire through the vasculature. Using a liquid contrast that is visible on xray, the doctor is able to see how open the arteries are and decide whether or not intervention needs to occur.


An Angioplasty is the expansion of a small balloon in the artery at the area of the blockage, and can be performed at the time of the angiogram. The expansion of the balloon re-establishes blood flow through the artery, after which the balloon is removed.

Stent Placement

Stents are small metal mesh tubes that may accompany balloon angioplasty that help the vessel remain open.


There are many forms and devices for Atherectomy, but all of them allow for the removal of plaque (cholesterol, fat, and calcium deposits) in order to return the elasticity of the blood vessel.

Catching Peripheral Arterial Disease early is important

Important PAD & CLI Facts

Eight million Americans suffer from PAD.

160,000+ amputations occur every year in in U.S. as a result of untreated PAD.

54% of those amputation patients never even received a diagnostic angiogram.
