VASCULAR-SURGERY - FMH

VASCULAR SURGERY

Fatima Memorial 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.

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). It also involves taking out a clot from the arteries after a heart attack to prevent acute limb ischemia (limb amputation).

Names of diseases along with their respective vascular treatments available at FMH are as follows:

ATHEROSCLEROSIS CLINIC AORTOILIAC OCCLUSIVE DISEASE

Treatment is stunting or bypass grafting.

LEG ARTERY DISEASE

Treatment is with medication, walking exercise, stunting and bypass surgery/endarterectomy.

ARM ARTERY DISEASE

CAROTID ARTERY DISEASE

PERIPHERAL ANEURYSMS

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.

VENOUS DISEASES CLINIC

Deals with spectrum of venous diseases inclusive of Varicose Veins are swollen, dilated veins that can be seen through the skin. They often look blue, bulging and twisted. If left untreated may worsen over time.

DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS (DVT)

Diagnosis is made clinically and duplex ultrasound and sometimes venography. It is treated with anti­coagulants and elastic compression stockings.

CHRONIC VENOUS INSUFFICIENCY & VENOUS ULEER

Treatment is through compression stockings, Sclerotherapy, Ablation, Vein Stripping, Bypass venous surgery and Valve repair. For venous ulcers we can use Unnaboots, transparent or hydrocolloid compression dressings and growth factors.

DIALYSIS ACCESS

Dialysis Access is an entrance way into the blood stream that lies usually in the arm but sometimes in the leg, it allows blood to be completely beneath the skin and is easy to use. The access is removed and returned quickly, efficiently and safely dialysis. The access portal is made by a fistula which is constructed by joining an artery to a vein or a graft which is a manmade tube that is inserted under the skin to connect an artery to a vein.
