Here are some highlights of people helped by Dr. Hollander and the Pulse Vascular Team.
December 14, 2020 - 72 year old female with end stage kidney disease with an inability to have her normal dialysis treatment and complaints of clotting and right arm swelling and pain. She was sent to a local vascular doctor who sent her home with the image on the right. She had a total central venous occlusion(blockage). She left Pulse with an opened venous drainage to the chest and is back on dialysis.
A CVO (central venous occlusion) is when there is an obstruction of blood from in the central veins that drain into the right heart.
Symptoms may include but not limited to: head, neck and/or arm swelling on the affected side. Arm pain. Clotting in the dialysis access.
This procedure is performed in the outpatient setting with short recovery time.
December 3, 2020 - Diabetes typically affects the three small arteries below the knee (tibial arteries) causing narrowing and ultimately blockages.
This patient is a 65 year old diabetic female with left great toe open wound with exposed bone. Angiogram before and after demonstrated left anterior tibial artery occlusion which was subsequently opened restoring in line flow to the foot promoting rapid wound healing.
November 19, 2020 - Diabetes affects 25% of the VA’s population according to the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs. Dr. Scott Hollander and the team at Pulse Vascular are committed to helping Veterans and Diabetics.
Diabetes is a leading risk factor in Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). These photos are of an 87 year old diabetic veteran who had been suffering from severe leg pain and non-healing wounds. He had received bypass surgery three years ago. After scheduling a consultation with Pulse Vascular, Dr. Scott Hollander was able to open a 100% calcified occlusion in the femoral artery with a minimally invasive out-patient procedure.
September 19, 2020 - Dr. Scott Hollander and the Pulse Vascular Team work to ensure their patients receive the best treatment they need. At Pulse we routinely help patients that hospital-based physicians cannot help due to inadequate expertise, lack of endovascular experience and limited skillsets.
Dr. Hollander is the first outpatient physician in New Jersey to use the innovative Baylis Radiofrequency device to open total central vein occlusions, relieving head and neck swelling, salvage failing dialysis accesses and increasing patient lifespan and quality of life. This patient was recently released from the hospital with stroke and was deteriorating rapidly to severely limited venous draining back to the heart.
July 15th, 2020 - End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patient on hemodialysis evaluated for right arm swelling and deteriorating dialysis access function. Pre and post procedure images provided. Post intervention right arm swelling completely resolved and dialysis function returned to normal.
July 3rd, 2020 - 52 year old diabetic male on dialysis with acute of chronic (10/10) right leg pain at rest with discolored limb. Pre and post images from an abrupt right popliteal artery occlusion revascularization.
If you or a loved one has leg pain while walking that resolves at rest or leg pain at rest (while sitting, lying or standing) or a poorly healing leg or foot wound, or have seen prior vascular physicians who told you nothing more can be done or have had prior surgeries or amputations (toe, foot, lower leg) don’t suffer, you may have Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) - a common serious yet underdiagnosed and under-treated condition.
