Many patients suffer from infections of the groin which require vascular surgery, mainly femoral artery bypass. To make sure that there are no new infections post surgery, GMF(gracilis muscle flap) is an effective option.Learn More
An aortofemoral bypass graft (AFBG) infection is dangerous and in 10 to 43% cases can lead to death. When this happens, the entire prosthetic graft material should be removed preferably.Learn More
This study reviews a single center's experience comparing urgent (<24 hours) thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair (TEVAR) versus delayed (>24 hours) TEVAR for Grade III BAI. BAIs (Blunt aortic injuries) are dangerous & need to be treated asap.Learn More
Chronic Mesenteric Ischemia can be fatal in a severely malnourished patient. This is why an endovascular approach is the best option. It acts as a bridge to an open and more durable procedure.Learn More
This is a study about the effectiveness of Computed-tomography (CTA) in vein mapping the GSV(greater saphenous vein).
Earlier, catheter based angiography has been used to assess the status of arterial and venous anatomy, & especially peripheral vascular disease.
Graft excision and neo-aortoiliac system (NAIS) reconstruction is the best treatment for aortic graft infection (AGI). A study of 16 years from 1990 to 2006, for all the patients treated for AGIs was done.Learn More
A patient who had previously had surgery to remove laryngeal tumor was experiencing difficulty in swallowing. When examined it was revealed that the oesophageal stent which was helping her speak, was protruding into her common carotid artery.Learn More
A patient with recurrent rectal cancer had the cancerous mass at the middle of the an iliac vein & an iliac artery. To remove it, vascular surgery & reconstruction was required.Learn More
Aortic & common iliac artery aneurysm can be tricky. When revascularization of the internal iliac artery is necessary, an iliac artery conduit “chimney” can be used to deliver the large caliber endoprosthesis using a Dacron graft sewn onto the iliac bifurcation.Learn More
An arterial catheter allows doctors to draw blood easily without having to stick the patient with a needle. It is a thin, hollow tube that is placed into an artery (blood vessel) in the wrist, groin, or any other location to measure blood pressure more accurately.Learn More
The femoropopliteal vein (FPV), or deep vein, has been used extensively for arterial and venous reconstructions due to its resistance to infection, durability & excellent long-term patency.Learn More
Vascular diseases like aortic graft infection, ischemia, thrombosis, occlusive disease form a blockage in arteries. The standard method to remove arterial blockages is an aortic-based procedure.Learn More
A CT scan is one of the most important diagnostic testing procedures. It can sometimes be the difference between a life & death.
A patient was experiencing abdominal pain, fever and vomiting blood.
