Axillary Artery Blockage

Posted by @pts, Oct 12, 2011

Hello. I have recently been diagnosed as having a 95% blockage of my left axillary artery. I have two options as far as the treatment for it is concerned. One option is to have a stent placed in the axillary artery. 2nd option is to have it surgically removed by a cardio-thoracic-vascular surgeon. The surgeon says it should not be stented as it won’t last long. The interventional specialist says the surgery is too risky, with the possibility of arm nerve damage. Not sure what the answer is, but need to make a decision very soon. Anyone ever hear of this condition???? Thanks
