Vascular Surgery

Vascular surgery involves the diagnosis and management of the disorder of arterial, venous, and lymphatic systems, exclusive of the intracranial and coronary arteries. Vascular surgeons at Adam Vital are significantly experienced in treating all kinds of vascular diseases, including diagnosis, treatment, reconstructive vascular and endovascular techniques, and possess advanced knowledge and skills to provide comprehensive care to the patients.

What are vascular diseases?

Vascular disease affects the arteries and veins of the body disrupting the blood flow and the formation of blood clots leads to inflammation. Risk factors include high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, obesity, physical inactivity, high blood pressure, high saturated fat diet, smoking, and diabetes

Treatment

Treatment depends on the severity and type of vascular disease. We at Adam’s Vital Hospital offer a variety of treatments with the latest endovascular procedure and traditional surgical interventions

Lifestyle Modification

Lifestyle modification is the first step towards the treatment of vascular diseases. This may include, switching to a low cholesterol diet, regular exercise, quit smoking, and controlling sugar levels.

Medication

Vascular surgeons prescribe medications to some patients to manage their cholesterol levels and platelet counts and functions.

Surgery

Many other minimally invasive endovascular options can be performed as an alternative to conventional open surgeries.

  • Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair :
    This is a minimally invasive endovascular procedure that involves small or no incisions in the groin, followed by the placement of a stent-graft. It is an optimal option for Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm and Aortic Dissection.
  • Endovascular Aneurysm Repair :
    This is a minimally invasive procedure for treating an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Placement of stent-graft in the groin continues the blood flow in the aorta without putting pressure on the aneurysm, preventing possible rupture.
  • Fenestrated Endovascular Aneurysm Repair :
    This is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat the complex abdominal aortic aneurysm.
  • Angioplasty and Stenting :
    This procedure is performed for treating Cerebrovascular disease, Vertebrobasilar Disease, and Peripheral Arterial Disease. It involves a catheter-guiding balloon which helps in opening a narrowed artery.
  • Cryoplasty :
    It is generally used to treat Peripheral Arterial disease in which the vascular surgeon inserts the balloon catheter into the blocked artery and repairs any obstruction in the vessel by utilizing liquid nitrogen gas.
  • Laser Atherectomy :
    This procedure involves the removal of atherosclerotic plaque from the blood vessel. The specialized catheter contains a sharp rotating blade, grinding bit, or laser filament that permits the surgeon to remove plaque from the vessel wall and suction any remaining debris.

Haemodialysis

There are two main methods of hemodialysis access

  • AV graft : In this method, a prosthetic graft is sewn between an artery and vein in the arm or leg
  • AV fistula : In this method, a piece of vein is taken from the arm or leg and sewn in the nearby artery. The sewn- vein eventually enlarges and becomes stronger and thicker

Surgical Options

our vascular surgeons perform a wide range of procedures intending to achieve the best outcomes.

Open Abdominal Aortic Surgery

This surgery is performed to treat Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm and Aortoiliac Occlusive disease, involving abdominal incision to gain access to the abdominal aorta. In patients with blocked aorta or iliac vessels, a graft is sewn in to redirect blood around the areas of blockage.

Bypass Surgery

This procedure creates an alternate channel for blood flow. The graft can be taken from the person’s vein or a synthetic material can be used. Bypass treatment is used for treating Vertebrobasilar Disease, Peripheral Arterial Disease, Renal Vascular Disease, and Mesenteric Vascular Disease.

Open Carotid and Femoral Endarterectomy

This procedure is used for treating Cerebrovascular Disease, Peripheral Arterial Disease, and Vertebrobasilar Disease. It involves the surgical removal of plaque from the inner lining of an artery.

Thoracic Outlet Surgery

This open surgical procedure is performed for treating Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.

Recovery Time and Post- Treatment Procedure

The recovery time for vascular surgery depends on the disease and how the procedure was performed.

Vein Procedure Recovery

  • Patients are encouraged to walk after the procedure
  • Keep the incision sites dry for the first 48 hours
  • Walk regularly for 10 – 20 minutes for the first two weeks after the procedure
  • Fully recovery in approximately one or two weeks
  • Avoid hot baths for one or two weeks
  • Avoid sitting for a longer period for time.
  • You can return to work right after the procedure

Arterial Procedure Recovery

  • Discharged from hospital in 12 to 72 hours after the surgery
