Vascular surgery

Vascular surgery

A few words about vascular surgery

Vascular surgery concerns the vessels of the body, namely:
  • Arteries
  • Veins
  • Lymph vessels
These vessels can become diseased, creating multiple and serious problems. Especially the arteries of the body are particularly damaged by atherosclerosis, a disease of the modern age.
Atherosclerosis mainly causes narrowing of the arteries, resulting in insufficient irrigation of body parts or organs. In other words, due to atherosclerosis, blood has difficulty passing through the artery, resulting in less oxygen reaching the tissues.
Those who need the help of the Vascular Surgeon are mainly:
  • Patients with difficulty walking (Intermittent Claudication)
  • Patients with symptoms of cerebral infarction (Transient Ischemic Stroke)
  • Patients with a palpable pulsating mass mainly in the abdomen (aneurysm)
