(Peripheral Arterial Disease) is not a particularly uncomfortable procedure for a patient to undergo. Constantino Pena, Interventional Radiologist at Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, says they have a very high success rate on the therapy, but if it does not work at first, he recommends trying again or trying other options, such doing a surgical type of bypass procedure to give blood supply to that area.
