Vascular surgery is a surgical sub-speciality in which the diseases of the vascular system are managed by medical therapy, minimally invasive catheter procedure and surgical reconstruction. Vascular system includes the arteries, veins and lymphatic circulation. The arterial diseases like aneurysms
and atherosclerosis, mostly affect the aged and those that are at high-risk like patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, sedentary lifestyle, smoking, poor nutrition and those who have a family history. Most commonly the arteries of the leg, head and neck are affected. Poor circulation also leads to diseased arteries. Atherosclerosis is a condition in which the fatty material, cholesterol and other substances, called plaque accumulate in the wall of the arteries. The plaque becomes fragile and breaks off leading to clots which causes block or can travel to other parts of the body causing heart attack or stroke.
