Vascular surgery

Quisisana, one of the centers of excellence for vascular surgery

Vascular surgery is a branch of surgery. The main goal is to resolve the prognosis of pathologies related to blood vessels, carrying out interventions that exploit repair, replacement, removal and derivation techniques. Cardiovascular surgery (cardiac surgery), on the other hand, deals with surgery of the heart and the blood vessels connected to it.

Quisisana accredited private hospital is among the centers of excellence for vascular surgery.

How the vascular surgery visit takes place

A vascular surgical visit is essential to be able to better prepare for the surgery. The primary objective of examinations and visits is to reduce surgical invasiveness as much as possible. A thorough and scrupulous visit allows you to better plan the pre-operative examinations, as well as the necessary intervention methods.

Here are the main specific diagnostic tests that are generally part of the pre-operative process:

  • Blood analysis
  • Radiological examinations
  • Angiography
  • Doppler ultrasound
  • Magnetic resonance
  • Cardiological examinations

Vascular surgery: when to intervene

Arteries are responsible for carrying oxygenated blood from the left ventricle of the heart to all other organs. All arteries perform this task, except for the pulmonary arteries which, on the contrary, carry blood rich in carbon dioxide and waste products.

There are arteries that, more than all, are affected by vascular or cardiovascular surgery:

  • Carotids
  • Aorta
  • Iliac and lower limb arteries
  • Renal arteries
  • Superior and inferior mesenteric
  • Cephalic tripod

The main vascular diseases treated by vascular surgery are:

  • Varicose veins (vascular surgery of the lower limbs)
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysms
  • Cerebrovascular insufficiency
  • Peripheral arterial disease

When referring to interventions related to this branch of medicine, one often thinks of vascular surgery of the lower limbs. Until a few decades ago this was mainly aimed at patients of a certain age. The age average, however, dropped considerably, due to a generally more sedentary lifestyle. Hence, those who run the greatest risks are smokers and those who lead a sedentary lifestyle. The situation is aggravated by:

  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Hypercholesterolemia
  • Overweight
