What is the treatment of occlusive disease of the aorta and iliac arteries
Changes in lifestyle

In mild cases, your doctor may recommend the patient to change some aspects of life. It is strongly recommended to quit smoking. The nicotine in tobacco constricts blood vessels, and that so detrimental to the affected vessels. In addition, it is necessary to normalize the excess weight, exercise, observe bezholesterinovuyu diet rich in fiber. All these events contribute to the slowdown in the process of atherosclerosis.

Diabetes itself can cause loss of lower limb arteries, disrupt sensitive feet, which is called diabetic neuropathy. This condition requires special treatment, foot hygiene, wearing special shoes and avoiding injury. This is due to the fact that in diabetic neuropathy patients can not feel my legs trauma that leads to lung infection and the formation of ulcers.

This includes the use of techniques such as diadynamic currents, ultra-high frequency and others. They are all based on the fact that expand blood vessels narrowed.

aorto-femoral, femoral-popliteal bypass method, which consists in the fact that in bypassing the narrowed section of the affected artery sutured vessel - the so-called shunt

angioplasty - minimally invasive intervention, consisting in the fact that the arterial catheter with inflated balloon on the end. Inflating, balloon expands the narrowed portion of the artery.
