The hospital offers vascular surgery which is a specialty of surgery in which diseases of the vascular system, or arteries and veins, are managed by medical therapy, minimally invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction.
The specialty evolved from general and cardiac surgery as well as minimally invasive techniques pioneered by international radiology.
It offers surgery involving arteries & veins of the limbs, neck and abdomen, used for repairing arteries after trauma opening narrowed arteries or bypassing them after atherosclerotic insult to prevent chronic limb ischemia (limb wasting).Taking out clot from the arteries after a heart attack to prevent acute limb ischemia (limb amputation)
ATHEROSCLEROSIS CLINIC AORTOILIAC OCCLUSIVE DISEASE
Blockage of Iliac arteries resulting in pain, Cramping, fatigue in the lower body while walking or exercising, pain is in buttocks, thighs and legs (intermittent claudicating).
Some men may experience erectile dysfunction, sever pain, coldness and numbness in a limb, sores on toes, heals or lower legs. Dry, scaly cracked skin on the foot, weakened muscles in the leg and ultimately gangrenes. Treatment is stunting or bypass grafting.
LEG ARTERY DISEASE
Feeling of tightness, heaviness, cramping or weakness in the leg with activity especially after a quick walk or walking uphill. Pain in the feet at rest, cold legs and feet, poor healing of wounds, ulcers on the feet and legs, complicated infections and gangrene.
Treatment is with medication, walking exercise, stunting and bypass surgery/endarterectomy.
ARM ARTERY DISEASE
Pain in the arms on activity. Intermittent claudicating. Sensitivity to cold, fingers turning blue or pale, slow growing fingernails, slow growing arm hairs, sore on the fingers and eventually gangrene if not treated.
Treatment is with medication, exercise, stunting and bypass surgery/endarterectomy
CAROTID ARTERY DISEASE
Carotid Artery disease may not cause symptoms in it’s early stages, however when symptomatic, there’s feeling of weakness, numbness or a tingling sensation on one side of the body, e.g in an arm or a leg, being unable to control the movement of an arm or a leg, losing vision n one eye, being unable to speak clearly. If these symptoms go within 24 hours, it is a transient ischemic attack and if it persist beyond 24 hours, it is a full blown stroke. Investigations needed are carotid duplex ultrasound, CT angiography, magnetic resonance angiography etc. Treatment is Carotid Endarterectomy
When a weak area of a blood vessel expands or bulges significantly it is called an Aneurysm. The concerns of a vascular surgeon about the aneurysms are the rupture and distal ischemia due to thromboembolism.
