Peripheral Vascular Disease

Angioplasty

Lower Extremity Angioplasty Volume

2015 – 2018

Angioplasty is used to widen the artery and clear blockages in some patients with advanced peripheral artery disease (PAD). The procedure can be combined with stenting to support the cleared vessel and keep it open.

In 2018, Cleveland Clinic physicians performed 117 angioplasty procedures to treat patients with PAD.
