In a research that is as recent as December 20 2012, it has been finally established that the ‘power to alleviate pain in the legs that results from blocked arteries is always in our hands. It has also been established that the best way to avoid the after surgery complications that occur in the legs six months or so later can be gotten rid of by the incorporation of a few lifestyle changes in the life of the victim. Simple measures as swallowing an aspirin and stopping the use of alcohol worked very well for victims. In addition, victims who also stopped smoking also eliminated their chances of suffering after surgery complications in their legs.

Medical therapies will keep PAD related infections away

Another thing that came out in the studies showed that patients who went on proper medical therapies were also not prone to some of the PAD (Peripheral Arterial Disease) complications and pain. It was established that medication, therapies and lifestyle changes can also be very good for the alleviation of pain and complications. With the PAD diseases and complications on the rise due to complications in the blood circulation, this is surely a relief for many people. Studies have shown that PAD related infections are on a constant rise in the market.

Aspirin has for a long time been used to alleviate some conditions related with the circulation. Today, after undergoing the PAD surgery, most patients get a subscription of aspirin from the doctor. In addition, it has been established that patients can now be put on statin drug subscriptions. These drugs eliminate blood clots in the system. In cases of patients who smoke, they are given cessation counseling and at the same time, they are put on the statin drugs and medication. Thankfully, the use of aspirin and statin drugs has been established to abolish the events of limb severance as well as further complications in patients. This simple combo might just be the savior required to save many people from complication related surgeries.

No repeat PVI and Limb salvage surgeries

atients who quit smoking or who were nonsmokers and used stain and aspirin did not go back for limb saving surgery. They also did not develop any more complications and their chances of full recover were almost 100%. For people who smoked and did not take statin drugs, the opposite happened to them. For such people, facing limb severance was very real. However, there is an underside to the statin drug prescriptions because it was established that this would lead to lack of implementation of proper medical therapies and therefore it would later lead to complications.

Researchers have concluded that there is the need to determine what exactly brings about the lack of medical therapy. As of now, there is more good news than bad news coming from this study.
