The MaineHealth Limb Salvage program provides patients with limb-threatening PAD (Peripheral Arterial Disease) access to comprehensive revascularization treatments. Vascular disease and associated nerve damage can lead to non-healing wounds, infections, ischemia (where tissue is starved of oxygen) and tissue death. Such conditions, both complex and urgent, require coordinated action by a team with a wide-range of experience.
- Angioplasty (including CO2, POBA, cutting balloon, drug eluting balloons, lithotripsy)
- Atherectomy (minimally invasive removal of atherosclerosis plaque)
- Endarterectomy (surgical removal of atherosclerosis plaque)
- Endovascular surgery
- Hybrid lower extremity re-vascularization (open and endovascular)
- Lower extremity bypass surgery
- Pedal and radial access procedures
- Stenting (including drug coated stents)
- Vascular surgery
Maine Medical Center’s integrated vascular surgery residency program is designed to provide graduated, incremental training in both vascular and core general surgery throughout the course of the program.
