FAQ'S


Vascular surgery is the assessment and treatment of blood vessel diseases, including both arterial and venous disorders.
1) Varicose Vein, 2) Vascular Tumours, 3) Bypass, 4) Permcath, 5) Angioplasty & Stenting, 6) Fistula, 7) Peripheral Aneurysm, 8) Trauma, 9) Diabetic Foot Ulcer
Varicose veins can occur in almost anyone and affect up to 35% of people in the India. You may inherit a tendency to develop varicose veins from a parent. Women, women who have had multiple children and obese persons are at a higher risk.

Deep veins: The leg muscles squeeze the deep veins during walking, carrying most of the blood back up the legs to the heart.

Superficial veins: These occur under the skin which are less important and can form varicose veins.

  • RF Ablation
  • Laser Ablation
  • Foam Sclerotherapy
Thread veins are purple coloured prominent veins in the skin seen most commonly in the legs. They are harmless but are sometimes uncomfortable and may be very unsightly. They can be very easily treated by sclerotherapy (injection).
Vascular tumors are rare conditions that can present in a spectrum from benign to malignant (cancerous).
A vascular bypass (or vascular graft) is a surgical procedure performed to redirect blood flow in a region of the body. It is commonly performed due to inadequate blood flow (ischemia) and as a part of organ transplantation.
A permcath is a long, flexible tube that is inserted into a vein most commonly in the neck (internal jugular vein) and less commonly in the groin (femoral vein).
Angioplasty (or balloon angioplasty) is an endovascular procedure to widen narrowed or obstructed arteries or veins, typically to treat arterial atherosclerosis. An empty, collapsed balloon, known as a balloon catheter, is passed over a wire into the narrowed locations and then inflated to a fixed size.
Hemodialysis fistulas are surgically created communications between the native artery and vein in an extremity. Direct communications are called native arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs).
A weakening in the wall of a blood vessel in your abdomen or sometimes in a leg which results in an abnormally dilated area.
  • Clotting off and interrupting blood flow.
  • Rupturing and causing serious bleeding.
  • Compressing adjacent tissues.
  • If you develop a peripheral aneurysm, it will not go away unless treated.
  • Most peripheral aneurysms over 2 cm in diameter require treatment.
  • In some cases even smaller aneurysms may require treatment.
The term "vascular trauma" refers to injury to a blood vessel—an artery, which carries blood to an extremity or an organ, or a vein, which returns blood to the heart.
  • A blunt injury can occur when a blood vessel is crushed or stretched.
  • A penetrating injury can occur when a blood vessel is punctured, torn or severed.
  • Either type of vascular trauma can cause the blood vessel to clot (thrombosis) and interrupt blood flow to an organ or extremity, or cause bleeding which can lead to life-threatening hemorrhage.
  • Many accidents and activities can lead to vascular trauma, including:
  • Home accidents.
  • Bicycle and motorized vehicle accidents while driving or riding.
  • Job-related accidents.
  • Athletic injuries.
  • Falls.
  • Domestic violence.
  • Combat injuries.
  • Violent crime.
It is a chronic non healing wound (Diabetic Foot Ulcers) in sole of foot which is due to increased pressure in foot at some areas while walking
Any wound by dressings or antibiotics usually heals or shows signs of healing within 1-2 months time, if wound does not show signs of healing by above things either it is callous ulcer or wound has infected the bone.
Either due to negligence of patients or unawareness of how to heal callous ulcer by some doctors many patients end up in infections and later amputations.
