The Department of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery offers a wide range of services for the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to arterial, venous and lymphatic systems. Vascular surgery is a speciality of surgery that deals with blood vessel-veins, lungs and lymphatic system disorders of the vascular system. It is managed by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction. Endovascular surgery is a field, where the surgeon works via a needle puncture and can “recanalize” narrowed or blocked arteries, and prevent dangerously dilated arteries from bursting by inserting an artificial artery inside the abnormal segment. Vascular and Endovascular Surgery involves intervention in the blood vessels including wall repair, removal of the blockage, and reconstruction.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Extremity angiography is a test used to view arteries in the hands, arms, feet, or legs. Also called peripheral angiography. Angiography uses X-rays and a special dye to view the inside of the arteries. Blood channels that convey blood away from the heart are known as arteries.
A peripheral angiography helps your doctor better understand the scope of your condition so that you can receive the most effective treatment strategy possible.
The stent remains in the artery permanently to keep it open and improve blood flow to the heart. In some cases, more than one stent may be needed to open an obstruction. Once the stent is in place, the balloon catheter is deflated and removed.
You will feel some pain from the cuts (incisions) your doctor made. For the first 1 to 2 weeks, your leg may feel stiff or painful. For this, your doctor will prescribe pain medicines. You might expect a lot of bruises on your leg at first.
An aneurysm can be caused by any disorder that causes the artery walls to weaken. Atherosclerosis (plaque build-up in the arteries), high blood pressure, and smoking increase your risk. Blood vessels can also swell as a result of deep wounds, traumas, or infections.
High blood pressure: High blood pressure puts pressure on the wall of the aorta. For many years, this stress can cause the wall of the blood vessels to bulge. This is the main factor in the development of thoracic aortic aneurysms.
Renal artery stenosis due to fibromuscular dysplasia is a potentially fatal condition and can result in end-stage renal failure.
Celiac artery compression syndrome, also known as median arcuate ligament syndrome, is a disorder in which the celiac axis, which feeds blood to the upper abdominal organs, is compressed by a fibrous muscle band of the diaphragm called the median arcuate ligament.
