Innovative Treatment Options
Treatment for vascular disease varies according to the type and severity
of the vascular disorder. As a recognized leader in state-of-the-art
vascular disease management, Hoag’s multidisciplinary team of cardiovascular experts
provides the most advanced vascular disease treatment options available
with clinical outcomes that rival national figures.
At Hoag, conventional vascular surgical techniques are being replaced by
an expanding set of non-surgical, endovascular procedures and hybrid techniques,
made possible by rapidly advancing technology. Hoag continues to lead
the way in
minimally-invasive endovascular therapies that consist primarily of state-of-the-art catheter-based procedures
and percutaneous stent procedures.
In addition, Hoag is the first in Orange County to provide ground-breaking
hybrid techniques. The hybrid approach combines non-surgical treatment
with minimally invasive surgical procedures providing excellent patient
outcomes for a greater number of patients.
These revolutionary hybrid techniques are being performed in Hoag’s new
Hybrid Cardiovascular Surgical Suite. This innovative surgical suite is the first of its kind in Orange County
and combines the best elements of an operating room with the state-of-the-art
imaging technology necessary for interventional cardiovascular procedures.
New at Hoag! PAD Exercise Walking Program
Do your legs hurt or become cramped while walking? When you stop to rest
does the pain go away, but return when you start to move again?
What is Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)?
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a narrowing of the peripheral arteries
to different parts of the body. It is most commonly used to describe the
narrowing of the arteries of the legs. When left untreated, PAD could
lead to poor quality of life, limb loss, or death.
Who is At Risk for PAD?
PAD is a commonly under-diagnosed condition seen in about 20% of seniors
over 65, and it’s very common in diabetics and smokers irrespective
of their age. Majority of PAD patients are asymptomatic. When symptoms
do occur, they are usually non-specific but most commonly described as
leg pain with walking (claudication).
How Can a PAD Supervised Exercise Walking Program Help?
Evidence-based medicine has shown that this program is a very affective
form of therapy. A supervised exercise walking program provides patients
with a conservative approach to treating their PAD. A PAD walking exercise
program can increase the pain-free walking distance and improve quality
of life and prevent the need for an invasive procedure.
