Vascular and endovascular surgery

Vascular and endovascular surgery are performed on the blood vessels to improve the blood flow to the different organs in our body. If the blood flow to a particular organ is blocked it may cause even life threatening effects.

Weakening of the arteries due to bulging and stretching is called aneurysm. Aortic aneurysm is the weakening of the aorta artery wall.

With the vascular and endovascular surgery these conditions can be treated properly. Aneurysms are dangerous to life if they rupture at some point of time.

Hence they have to be treated with vascular and endovascular surgery. Thoracic aortic aneurysms, thoracoabdominal aneurysms, and abdominal aortic aneurysms are some of the types of aneurysms that can occur in a person.

These are caused due to aging. Vague pain in the abdomen or the chest is a symptom of aneurysm. Diagnosing aneurysm before a vascular and endovascular surgery is done using ultrasound, CT scan and MRI scan.

Angiography is also used to diagnose this condition. Minimally invasive procedures like vascular and endovascular surgery are performed to treat these conditions.

Carotid artery diseases are also treated using vascular and endovascular surgery. Carotid arteries are located in the neck and they supply blood to the brain.

Any interruption in the blood flow to any part of brain would lead to a stroke and disability to some parts of the body. High BP and Cholesterol, diabetes and smoking could be the risk factors for such carotid artery diseases.

A vascular and endovascular surgery is performed to treat these conditions. Sudden numbness in the arms and legs, memory loss, vision problems in one or either of the eyes and severe headaches could be the symptoms of a carotid artery disease.

A vascular and endovascular surgery is an option to treat them whether they are temporary or permanent symptoms. You have to discuss with your surgeon on the type of treatment to be taken.

Carotid endarterectomy and carotid stenting are vascular and endovascular procedures done to treat patients with these symptoms. Sometimes blood clots are found in the veins.

The veins are responsible for transporting blood back to the heart from different parts of the body. this condition of blood clots in the veins is called deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and thrombophlebitits. The arms and the legs are the most affected by deep vein thrombosis.

These are treated by the vascular and endovascular surgery. The DVT can lead to pulmonary embolism in which the blood clot in the vein may travel to the lungs and may prove fatal. A vascular and endovascular surgery is done to treat DVT.
