Vascular surgery is the branch of surgery that deals with diseases of the vascular system, which includes the arterial, venous, and lymphatic systems (excluding the intracranial and coronary arteries). It is indicated when vascular diseases cannot be treated by less invasive, non-surgical treatments. Vascular surgery are doctors who specialized in the field of vascular surgery.

Some vascular diseases that need surgery for treatment are:

  • Arteriosclerosis / Atherosclerosis : Arteriosclerosis is when the inside lining of the arteries becomes thick and stiff due to pressure over a period of time. Atherosclerosis is when the lining hardens due to accumulation of fatty deposits (plaques) and other substances. Both restrict blood flow to body organs and tissues which leads to chest pain (angina), a heart attack or coronary artery disease.
  • Arteriovenous malformations : These are defects of the circulatory system that arise during embryonic or fetal development or soon after birth. In these conditions veins and arteries become entangled, thus affecting blood flow and as a result affecting the body.
  • Cavernous malformation : A rare disorder of the capillaries and smallest veins in one part of the brain. The disorder occurs when a blood-filled mass resembling a tumor, called a hemangioma, forms.
  • Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) : This is when leg veins cannot pump enough blood back to your heart.
  • Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) : KTS is a congenital circulatory disorder characterized by hemiangiomas (abnormal benign growths on the skin consisting of masses of blood vessels), arteriovenous abscesses, and varicose veins, usually on the limbs.
  • Mesenteric ischemia : In this condition one or more arteries that supply blood to the large and small intestines narrow or become blocked. This blockage causes lack of blood flow resulting in tissues in the intestines to die.
  • Renovascular conditions : These conditions affect the veins and arteries of the kidneys, which either narrow or develop clots. This in turn affects the flow of blood to the kidneys resulting in renal artery stenosis, renal vein thrombosis, high blood pressure, or kidney failure.

Some common symptoms for all these diseases are persistent pain or swelling of any part of the body, muscle weakness, fever, nausea, vomiting, or difficulty in breathing. If you experience any one, or more than one, of these symptoms, be sure to consult a vascular surgeon closest to where you are in Oahu.
