Vascular or cardiac surgery involves surgery for conditions related to the vascular system (arteries, veins, lymphatic circulation). Currently, thanks to the medically refined procedures such as angiography, stenting, sclerotherapy and so on, which are endovascular (minimally invasive) treating arterial and venous diseases have shown faster recovery period and lasting recovery. The significant advantages of these burgeoning new procedures have shorter hospital stay and lower mortality rates, both of which are great news for our patients.
Another form of cardiac surgery is a vascular intervention which is a non-surgical procedure. Some of the best vascular intervention treatments which may be performed by surgeons are done via a catheter - a thin, flexible tube - to fix affected or weakened vessels and narrowed arteries or other damaged parts of the heart.
