What is Vascular Surgery?

 

 

 

 

 


Aneursyms

  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

Angioplasty/Stenting

  • Coronary Artery Disease
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease

Angioplasty is a minimally invasive technique. A catheter with a tiny balloon on the tip is first guided to the artery blockage. The balloon is then inflated to widen the artery. In some cases, a stent (a wire mesh supportive tube) is used along with the balloon. After the balloon is removed, the stent is left in place to keep the artery open.

Endarterectomy

  • Carotid Artery Stenosis

Endarterectomy clears plaque from a blocked artery, such as the carotid. After making an incision in the artery, the surgeon removed the plaque from the artery wall. During the procedure, blood flow is sometimes temporarily rerouted around the blockage using a shunt (small tube). The shunt is removed after the procedure is over.

Dialysis Access

  • End Stage Renal Disease

Port-A-Cath

  • Long term administration of chemotherapy drugs or antibiotics

Vein Ablation

  • Varicose Veins

The ClosureFast™ procedure utilizes patented, overlapping segmental radiofrequency ablation to deliver uniform heat to close the vein. Once sealed, blood is directed to nearby healthy veins.
