What does a vascular surgeon in Hyderabad do?

A vascular surgeon is someone who is trained in the diagnosis and management of the diseases of the vascular system, minus the heart and the brain. They are basically highly trained specialists. The blood vessels and the arteries carrying oxygen-rich blood, and the veins leading it back to the heart are the basic elements of the circulatory system. If the blood doesn’t flow smoothly, your body cannot function. For instance, if the arteries harden up, it can create a blockage in the circulatory system, interfering with the blood flow and more. This is when the vascular surgeon in Hyderabad will help treat the issue. Firstly, the vascular surgeon in Hyderabad will make you understand everything there is to know about the vascular health. He will talk to you about all the options, trying to avoid surgery until they can.

What are the common Vascular surgeries?

Aortic aneurysm repair

The aorta the largest artery of the body. It starts from the heart and goes on to the abdomen. The chest and abdominal aneurysms can stretch and make the aorta wide if there is an infection in the or if the artery walls become weak. If the aortic aneurysm bursts, it can lead to serious internal bleeding, which can be life-threatening. Therefore, to prevent any rupture, the vascular surgeons use minimally invasive procedures to repair abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms.
Carotid artery treatment

The carotid arteries are present in the neck and are responsible to carry blood to your brain.  The arteries sometimes become narrow, generally, it is because of atherosclerosis, the build-up of cholesterol and substances, which becomes hardened and turns into plaque. Also, when the arteries are narrow, if a blood clot sticks there, the blood may not be able to supply blood to the brain. This is one of the main reasons for strokes.
Your doctors may first prescribe drugs to prevent all the clots, in order to reduce the risk of stroke. The other procedures include;

  • Angioplasty – It is a non-surgical procedure to open the artery with a balloon and a stent.
  • Endarterectomy -It is a surgery done to remove plaque
  • Peripheral arterial disease
    PAD or peripheral arterial disease is when the arteries become narrow and harden where the arteries supply blood to your feet, legs and arms. This can either start blood flow, which leads to the legs becoming hurt or becoming numb. There are several procedures to cure PAD. It includes a new procedure to clean blocked arteries, thrombolytic therapy, bypass surgery, and angioplasty.
  • Acute Limb Ischaemia
    This is when there is a lack of blood flow to the limbs. It is caused by an embolism or thrombosis and rarely because of a trauma. The symptoms include; pain, pallor, paraesthesia, cold, and even paralysis.
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis
    Deep vein thrombosis is basically the formation of a blood clot deep inside the vein. It most commonly takes place in the leg area. The symptoms include; pain, swelling, redness, and a feeling of warmth in the affected area. Usually, more than half of the cases don’t show any symptoms. The risk factors for this condition include; cancer, trauma, lack of movement, obesity, smoking, hormonal birth control, pregnancy, the period following birth.
  • Endoleak
    It is a leak in the aneurysm sac after the patient has undergone endovascular repair.
  • Connective tissue disease
    A connective tissue disease is where the connective tissues of the system become damaged.
  • Buerger disease
    It is when the arteries experience inflammation or clotting, usually in the hands and legs. It is generally because of the use of tobacco products, mainly from cigarette smoking. The main symptoms of this disease are; pain in the affected areas, impaired circulation, where it turns sensitivity to cold, ulcers, and even gangrene. Apart from drugs and therapy, surgery can also be a part of the treatment.
  • Aortoiliac occlusive disease
    Also known as Leriche’s syndrome, it is when the abdominal aorta becomes blocked. The symptoms include; erectile dysfunction, decreased or zero femoral pulse, and claudication of thighs and buttocks. The treatment for this disorder is usually vascular bypass.
