Angiology & Vascular surgery
Medical definitionAngiology and vascular surgery focuses on the study, diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to the circulatory system, including the arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels of the “peripheral” areas.
Specialist doctorSpecialists in angiology and vascular surgery play a significant role in the various clinical stages leading to diagnosis and treatment of peripheral vascular diseases.
No Invasive Vascular DiagnosisIn terms of diagnosis, in addition to clinically evaluate the patient, the specialist performs non-invasive diagnostic tests, such as carotid doppler ultrasound scan, lower limb arterial and venous Doppler ultrasound scan. When necessary the vascular surgeon also performs invasive diagnostic tests including angiograms of the peripheral vascular areas.
TreatmentTreatment of vascular disorders is determined by each patient’s specific problems and may involve surgical or non-surgical methods.
Minimally invasive surgeryToday we prefer these new treatments, minimally aggressive surgery, intravascular laser and radiofrequency since they permit earlier mobilization, better aesthetic results and more comfort for the patient.
