Vascular Procedures

Vascular Procedures

vascularThe vascular system is the network of blood vessels that circulate blood to and from the heart and lungs. The circulatory system (made up of the heart, arteries, veins, capillaries, and the circulating blood) provides nourishment to the body’s cells and removes their waste. When these systems are blocked or damaged, vascular surgery may be called for. Corrective procedures include balloon angioplasty and/or stenting, aortic and peripheral vascular endovascular stent/graft placement, thrombolysis, and other adjuncts for vascular reconstruction.
