Vascular surgery is a procedure that treats diseases of the vascular system (arteries and veins, lymphatic circulation, etc.). Current procedures for treating arterial and venous disease are mainly performed using newer techniques such as angiography and stenting. These are minimally invasive (endovascular) vascular surgeries. These procedures have lower mortality rates and shorter hospital stays.
What Is Vascular Surgery?
Vascular Surgery is the careful specialty that spotlights on the vascular framework — veins, huge and little — as well as the lymphatic framework, which moves contamination battling white platelets through the body. It’s essential to take note of that vascular specialists for the most part don’t perform brain or heart systems.
Arteries diseases conditions that cause blockages or clots in the blood vessels can lead to pain when walking and severe rest pain. Common causes of arterial disease are smoking, diabetes, high cholesterol, and long-standing hypertension.
Vein diseases are conditions such as abnormally dilated legs and ankles, swelling and discolouration of ankles and legs, and wounds/ulcers above the feet and ankles. Deep vein clots can form in the deep veins. This is called Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). If the clots migrate into the lungs, it could be life-threatening.
Lymphatic diseases can cause massive swelling in the feet and legs, thickening and folding skin (called ‘Elephantiasis’). These disorders can be treated with medications, open surgery such as bypass procedures, or endovascular (laser and radiofrequency ablation) procedures
Veins are blood vessels that transport blood from the body to the heart. The connection between veins and arteries is called capillaries. Simply put, veins are blood vessels that carry blood from different body parts to the heart for recirculation. Varicose vein is a common disease that occurs to a lot of people nowadays.
What is Varicose Vein
Varicose vein refers to a condition where the normal veins don’t function as they should. Let’s take a closer look at it: Arteries transport oxygenated blood from the heart to various parts of the body (for example, Pressure is applied to the legs.
Transporting blood back into the heart requires most of the pressure from the heart pump to work. Veins don’t have the same support to carry blood to the heart. To counter the decreased pressure, there are small valves in your veins that can open and close to keep blood flowing in the right direction, back towards the heart.
These tiny valves can sometimes fail, allowing blood back up behind the valves. The vein walls weaken over time and the veins bulge. This is what causes varicose veins to appear as a raised, welt-like appearance. Spider veins are smaller than those of the other.
Varicose veins are most common in older people. However, significant weight gain can also cause them. Varicose veins can also be caused by prolonged sitting or standing, which puts more pressure on the veins than is normal.
Varicose veins can also be caused by genetic factors. Women are more likely than men to develop them. Varicose veins can also be caused by smoking and using hormonal replacements or oral contraceptives.
