Vascular surgery has in its entire gamut the diagnosis and inclusive management of all kinds of disorders within the arteries, veins, and lymph, exclusive of the coronary and intracranial arteries. Physicians in vascular surgery need to have considerable experience with every aspect of providing treatment of patients with all kinds of vascular diseases, which includes diagnosis medical treatment, also endovascular and reconstructive vascular surgery techniques. Physicians of vascular surgery need to possess advanced knowledge plus skills of providing inclusive care to patients having vascular disease, realize the need these patients have, provide teaching of these information to others, conduct or visit the research programs in vascular disorders, and indulge in self assessment of the outcomes.

The vascular surgeon needs to have advanced understanding and knowhow also experience with the managing of vascular issues including:

All the elements of clinical understanding, treatments including plethysmography, drug therapy, risk factor, medical management, managing risk factor, managing wounds like amputation, and several adjunctive medical procedures.

Indications along with techniques related to open and other endovascular treatment of the said disorders to bring the total spectrum of treatments and diagnostics of vascular disorders.

People having serious and complex conditions mostly of the lymph and blood systems often visit endovascular physicians and surgeons.

Why vascular surgery

The network of our veins moving through our body is called the vascular system. Following conditions are treated by the vascular scientists:

Carotid disease of the artery

Carotid arteries carry blood from our head to the neck. In case of plaque building inside the carotid arteries, there is a possibility of stroke. To prevent such a stroke, doctors perform surgery.


The dilation of blood vessels can lead to rupture and result to patient’s death. Aneurysms could come up in any part of human body, however are common in aorta, spleen, legs and brain. This occurs when the wall of any artery weakens, and causes a large selling.

Critical Limb Ischemia

This is condition when arteries have a severe blockage and the blood flow reduces. If not attended on time, the vascular surgeon may need to amputate the sore limb.


It is the swelling caused due to the accumulation of fluid within the tissue of the body due to lymphatic vessel blockage.

Before the surgery – How diagnosis happens and it’s preparation

A vascular surgeon evaluates clinically a patient’s condition on the basis of physical history and medical history. The vascular surgeon also evaluates non-surgical measures like risk factor managing and drug therapy. To understand if this surgical procedure is required, the surgeon may conduct some of the following tests to figure the arterial flow of blood:

  1. Angiography
  2. Arteriogram
  3. Ultrasound Scan
  4. Ankle-Brachial Index Test
  5. Segmental Pressure Test
  6. Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  7. Plethysmography
  8. Duplex Ultrasound Scanning
  9. Lymphangiography
  10. Computed Tomography Scan
  11. Lymphoscintigraphy

However, the symptoms of vascular disease may not surface unless a significantly huge clot has grown to block your blood flow. Before surgery gets conducted, doctors perform thorough investigation. Patients with a high risk of heart attack are administered certain drugs a couple weeks before surgery happens.

Aftercare post surgery is vital. However, the term of taking care would depend on what type of surgery, the criticality of the situation, and several other factors.

What would be required to become aware of the surgery?

Every surgery is known that it carry some risks. There could be infection risks when incision is required. There is higher risk that compilations would occur in case of a vascular surgery in which case major blood vessels are a matter. Furthermore, those patients with smoking habits have chronic kidney or lung cases, high blood pressure plus other illnesses remain at a greater risk of getting complications when vascular surgery happens. Failing of grafts, heart attack, or stroke, and leg swelling are certain risks associated with this surgery.
