Vascular Surgical Services in Navi Mumbai

Vascular Surgical Services

The vascular system consists of a network of veins that travel throughout the body. The vascular surgery specialists in Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Navi Mumbai perform vascular surgeries for the treatment of the following conditions:

  • Carotid Artery Disease
    Carotid arteries are the major blood vessels in your neck that carry the blood to the head and neck. The buildup of plaque inside the carotid arteries may cause a stroke. Vascular surgery is performed to prevent stroke and treat the affected carotid artery.
  • Aneurysms
    It refers to the dilation of the blood vessels due to the weakening of a wall of an artery, leading to their rupture and ultimately resulting in death. Aneurysms can form in any body part, but they most commonly occur in the brain, legs, spleen and aorta.
  • Critical Limb Ischemia
    It is a condition that occurs due to severe blockage in the arteries, leading to reduced blood flow. If timely intervention is not done, the surgeon might need to amputate the limb.
  • Chronic Venous Insufficiency
    It occurs when the leg veins do not allow blood to travel back to the heart due to some pathology. Sometimes, a defect in the valves of the veins can occur, causing the blood to flow in both directions - to and from the heart. To treat this condition, varicose surgery is a must.
  • Lymphoedema
    Lymphoedema is the swelling of an arm or a leg that occurs secondary to the accumulation of fluid in the tissues of the body due to blockage of lymphatic vessels.
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD)
    It is a gradual, progressive circulatory disorder that occurs due to blockage, narrowing or spasms in a blood vessel. Vascular surgery is a bypass graft procedure which involves replacing the blocked artery with a blood vessel from another part of the body or a synthetic tube. The blood flow is rerouted with the help of a blood vessel or a synthetic tube.
  • Pulmonary Embolism
    Pulmonary Embolism or PE is the development of a blood clot in a blood vessel of a leg. The clot then moves up to the lung artery, where it can block it and suddenly stop the blood flow. An embolus is the formation of a blood clot that forms in one area, breaks off and then moves to a different area of the body.
  • Renal Vascular Disease
    This disease affects the flow of blood in and out of the kidneys, causing high blood pressure, kidney damage and kidney failure.

A vascular surgeon clinically assesses patients based on their medical history and conducts a physical examination. The surgeon also tries to find out if non-operative measures such as drug therapy may be enough to treat the patient or for risk factor management. The heart surgeon may conduct the following tests to determine arterial blood flow and decide if a vascular surgical procedure is required:

  • Arteriogram
  • Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) Test
  • Ultrasound Scan
  • Segmental Pressure Test
  • Angiography
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Lymphangiography
  • Lymphoscintigraphy
  • Computed Tomography Scan
  • Duplex Ultrasound Scanning
  • Plethysmography

The patient is screened, and a thorough evaluation is done before the surgery. Those who are at high risk may be given oral beta-blockers a couple of weeks before the surgery to decrease the possibility of a heart attack.

Follow-up care after any surgery is important. However, the duration of care depends upon the type of surgery, condition of the patient and other relevant factors. In some cases, the patient will need hospitalisation for more than 24 hours till the situation stabilizes.

All surgeries carry some risks, and so does vascular surgery. Any surgical incision carries a risk of possible infection. There is an increased risk of complications during a vascular surgery where major blood vessels or organs are involved. Furthermore, smokers, patients with chronic lung or kidney disease, high blood pressure and other illnesses are at an increased risk of complications during vascular surgery. Failed or blocked grafts, bleeding, heart attack or stroke, and leg swelling are some other associated risks of vascular surgery.
