Dallas Cardiologists Explore 'Next Frontier' in Vascular-Disease Treatments

and limb loss.

A new technique to treat these blockages involves using a tiny crown coated with diamond chips that rapidly spins at high speeds and sands away plaque inside arteries -- while preserving the healthy tissue of the arterial wall. Orbital rotational force causes the tip of the device to expand inside the artery as it slowly sands away plaque and opens the artery to restore proper blood flow.

"These treatments are among our best tools to treat peripheral vascular disease and restore blood flow to the legs and feet," said Dr. Kenneth Saland, an interventional cardiologist at Presbyterian who will perform cases during the conference. "Advanced treatments like these are keys to effective limb salvage."

The Research and Education Institute for Texas Health Resources (TREI) provided technical support and assistance in the preparation and production for this event to happen through the Presbyterian Institute for Minimally Invasive Technology (PIMIT).
