Vascular surgery is a modern specialty addressed to a large group of patients with arterial and venous diseases, and patients requiring vascular access for hemodialysis.
The most common vascular diseases:
- Atherosclerosis – fat deposits in the walls of arteries and lesions on arterial walls, with clots in the artery – artery narrowing and complete sealing / embolism / cutaway aneurysms;
- Ischemia – decreased blood supply due to the narrowing or clogging of the arteries, causing pain in the vascularized areas, most commonly in the legs, heart and brain (pain on walking, gangrene, angina, heart attack, stroke);
- Peripheral arterial disase of the lower limbs (arteritis) – produces symptoms in about 7% of the population aged between 50 and 75 years old (walking pain, rest pain, gangrene) but in reality is much more frequent, but undetected;
- Hydrostatic varices – dilated veins located superficially, especially in the legs, which can produce both local complications (edema, thrombophlebitis, varicose ulcers) and unpleasant aesthetic appearance;
- Aortic aneurysm – the aorta dilatation (abdomen, thorax) produced typically by atherosclerosis and hypertension, most commonly located in the abdominal aorta, with a high risk of rupture when is bigger than 5.5 cm in diameter, with surgery indication;
- Carotid disease – atherosclerosis disease of vessels that supply the brain (carotid) causing their sealing, embolism and stroke;
- Raynaud’s Disease – fading and cyanosis of the fingers (on hands and feet) caused by temperature changes or emotional factors (stress);
Thrombophlebitis / venous insufficiency – is manifests particularly in the legs, causing swelling and chronic lesions (stasis dermatitis, stasis ulcer).
