      How Does The Recanalization Procedure Work?

      Recanalization is a procedure that uses tiny devices to cross the arterial blockages and re-establish the vessels to normalize the blood flow in your leg. The procedure includes several steps, including:

      1. You lay comfortably beneath a special x-ray machine, and your doctor performs an angiography to identify the blocked artery and measure the extent of the blockage. You may need a contrast dye injected into the blood vessel for your doctor to clearly delineate the anatomy.
      2. Using the imaging devices for guidance, your doctor locates the blockage, and with the help of various miniature devices, crosses the blocked artery to re-establish that it’s unobstructed.
      3. Using angiographic techniques, such as atherectomyballoon angioplasty and stenting, the recanalized vessels is molded to the desired diameter.
      4. The arterial access puncture hole is closed with an arterial closure device.

      The effectiveness of your recanalization procedure depends on several factors, regardless of the skill of your doctor. The extenuating factors include:

      • The severity of your blockage
      • The length of the blockage
      • The location of your artery

      The more extensive the blockage, the more difficult it is to recanalize the artery and the less likely it is that the recanalized artery will remain open for a long time. That’s why the key in successful management of peripheral artery disease is an appropriate and timely intervention.

      When Is the Right Time for a Recanalization?

      If you need an arterial recanalization to treat a blocked artery because it’s causing pain at rest or a non-healing ulcer, you may need this procedure performed immediately to restore blood flow and prevent an amputation.
