Below are the vascular procedures:

1. Angioplasty, Atherectomy and Stenting

Angioplasty is the surgical procedure that is performed to widen the blocked arteries. During angioplasty, the surgeon inflates a small balloon within the narrowed artery to widen and improve the blood flow. Often, a stent is inserted to support the artery wall and keep the artery wide open mainly in conditions like arterial atherosclerosis.

Atherectomy is a technique for removing atherosclerosis from blood vessels within the body. It is an alternative to angioplasty for the treatment of peripheral artery disease.

A stent is a small mesh tube that holds open passages in the body, such as narrow arteries. Stents are often used to treat narrowed coronary arteries that supply the heart with oxygen-rich blood. The stent holds open the narrowed arteries to allow adequate blood to flow to the heart.

2. Arteriovenous Fistula Creation for Dialysis Access

A vascular access is a surgically created vein used to remove and return blood during hemodialysis. An AV fistula is a connection, made by a vascular surgeon, of an artery to a vein. This provides a good blood flow for dialysis.

3. Carotid Endarterectomy

This is a surgical procedure done to remove plaque from the carotid arteries of the neck; the main blood vessels that supply blood to the brain.

4. Carotid Stenting

This is a minimally invasive procedure that clears the blocked carotid artery. It is performed along with carotid angiography, which uses X-ray images to check for the blocked carotid arteries.

5. Dialysis Access

Dialysis is an artificial method of purifying the blood in individuals with kidney failure. It helps in removing the impurities from the blood. Dialysis access is a method of gaining access into the bloodstream through blood vessels for dialysis.

6. Endarterectomy

It is a surgical procedure to remove the atheromatous plaque material, in the lining of an artery constricted by the buildup of deposits. It is carried out by separating the plaque from the arterial wall.

7. Endovascular Stent Graft

An endovascular stent graft is a tube composed of fabric supported by a metal mesh called a stent. It can be used for a variety of conditions related to blood vessels. It is commonly used to reinforce an aneurysm.

8. Surgical Bypass

Coronary bypass surgery redirects blood around a section of a blocked or partially blocked artery in the heart. It involves taking a healthy blood vessel from the leg, arm or chest and connecting it below and above the blocked arteries in the heart.

9. Thoracic Outlet Surgery

The thoracic outlet is a small passageway leading from the base of the neck to the armpit and arm. Surgery may also involve removing scar tissue caused by repetitive use of an arm or shoulder that may be compressing adjacent nerves and muscles.

Do Varicose vein removal procedures require anesthesia?

All varicose vein removal procedures are performed using local anesthesia allowing patients to literally walk out of their procedure, thus, avoiding the need for extended recovery and avoiding the side effects from general anesthesia.

What happens to the treated vein left behind in the leg?

The vein simply becomes fibrous tissue after treatment. Over time, the vein will gradually incorporate into surrounding tissue.
