Common Vascular Surgery Treatment and Procedures
Carotid Artery Disease
Humans contain two carotid arteries that carry oxygenated blood from your heart to your head, face, and brain. When they are healthy blood passes through them like an open pipe. A carotid artery stenosis condition occurs when your carotid artery becomes blocked by excessive plaque. In that cases, it may lead to stroke and other health issues.
A patient may develop this medical condition in either of the two arteries in the neck or both. This should be addressed and diagnosed with the right treatment before it becomes severe and leads to death.
Vascular Surgeons at Kamineni Hospitals are experts at dealing with a variety of artery issues. With the right treatment option, medical experts can cure this without any further complications.
Carotid Endarterectomy is a surgical procedure used to remove the plaque from the carotid arteries to smoothen the blood flow. Vascular Surgeons will make an incision over the neck to expose the narrowed carotid artery. Then the surgeon inserts a plastic tube into the blood vessel. It helps in re-routing the blood flow around the blocked area.
Once the surgeon removes the plaque the skin incision will be stitched together. Which restores the blood flow as usual.
Carotid Stenting is an endovascular procedure where a stent is deployed into the blood vessel. A stent is a metal mesh tube that helps the carotid artery from narrowing down shortly. This type of surgery is used only when the patient’s health condition couldn’t support other surgical procedures like Carotid Endarterectomy.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
The aorta is a large blood vessel in the human body that delivers blood from your heart to your head, arms, and down to your abdomen, legs, and pelvis. If this blood vessel swells or bulges out like a balloon that condition is named Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA).
It could be life-threatening if not treated before it bursts or the condition becomes worse. This type of disease is very common in older men and smokers. Some of the reasons for this disease are smoking, hypertension, and vascular inflammation. These are mainly two types small and large. Smaller ones may not affect the patient severely but a large one could be dangerous. Because they grow quickly and should be treated with surgery effectively.
Based on the stage and growth rate of these diseases treatment will be varied. Some of the common treatment options for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms are including
- Open Abdominal Surgery
- Endovascular Surgery
- Renal Transplant & Vascular Access
Whenever a patient experiences kidney failure his health degrades significantly, Because the Kidney is responsible for filtering out toxins and other waste from the body. If kidneys fail to do their work then toxins and other wastes will get accumulate in the blood.
In such cases, medical specialists will perform dialysis to filter out the toxins from the body. There are mainly two types of dialysis that will be performed on patients like peritoneal and hemodialysis. Haemodialysis involves filtering out blood using a machine. For that, the doctor needs to access blood via veins and arteries to complete the flow of blood through the dialysis machine.
Our seasoned vascular surgeons at Kamineni Hospitals offer two treatment options for kidney failure patients.

- Arteriovenous Fistula creation & surveillance
- Surgical Bypass
Vascular surgeons at Kamineni Hospitals are skilled in performing various surgical bypass procedures. They work closely with patients to understand their medical history and health conditions. Which helps them deliver exceptional patient care and treatment.
Surgical Bypass procedures will be carried out by vascular surgeons whenever the blood flow gets blocked in arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood to human body parts. Based on the patient’s age and lifestyle habits plaque takes place in arteries. Plaque interrupts the blood flow causing various health complications.
In such cases, Vascular surgeons perform surgical bypass procedures to restore the blood flow. They use a graft an artificial stent to divert the blood flow from the blocked section of the artery. Each end of the block is then clamped. Once the blood flows without any leakage or disruption surgeon stitches the incision firmly.

Varicose veins are a medical condition in which gnarled or enlarged veins appear in the legs and feet. Most of the time varicose veins do not need any treatment. If you are experiencing any discomfort or itching then treatment may be necessary.
