How to Choose Vascular Surgery
--Purpose of Vascular Surgery-- Vascular diseases are generally the result of conditions that clog or weaken blood vessels, or damage valves that control the flow of blood in and out of the veins, thus robbing them of vital blood nutrients and oxygen. Vascular diseases include peripheral vascular disease (PVD), carotid artery disease, and aortic aneurysms (AAA). As people age, atherosclerosis occurs with the constant passage of blood through the arteries. It can take on a number of forms, of which atherosclerosis (hardening of the innermost portion) is the most common. This occurs when fatty material containing cholesterol or calcium (plaque) is deposited on the innermost layer of the artery. This causes a narrowing of the inside diameter of the blood vessel. Eventually, the artery becomes so narrow that a blood clot forms, blocking blood flow to an entire portion of the body. This condition is called PVD or peripheral arterial disease. Surgery is used to treat specific diseased arteries, such as atherosclerosis, to help prevent strokes or heart attacks, improve or relieve angina or hypertension, remove aneurysms, improve claudication, and save legs that would otherwise have to be amputated. The choices involve repairing the artery, bypassing it, or replacing it. --What to Look For in Vascular Surgeons-- When choosing a surgeon to perform your vascular surgery, it is important to choose someone that you trust, and that you believe will provide you with the best surgical treatment possible. One of the first questions you should ask is whether or not your surgeon is board certified. Board certification in a medical specialty is evidence that a physician's qualifications for specialty practice are recognized by his or her peers. You may want to meet with more than one vascular surgeon, so that you can ultimately choose one that feels right to you. --As we age, conditions of the vascular system become more common, and we are more likely to need a vascular surgeon. can help you find a vascular surgeon near you.
