The Unit of Vascular Ssugery treats the diseases of the Aorta, Carotids and of the others peripheral vessels needing surgical treatment. For the Aorta the minimally invasive approach is preferred, both by open and Endovascular technique. Specialised in tibial and pedal revascularization for salvage of limbs affected by Critical limb threatening ischemia, in the abdominal procedures it uses the mini laparotomic approach whenever possible, reducing the lenght of hospital stay. It also deals with the blood vessel tumours, both primary and secondary.
Within the Vascular Surgery Operating Unit, there is the Phlebology Service, which provides:
- Examinations and angiological treatments (vascular eco-colour doppler, treatment of vascular ulcers, photoplethysmography, flow-mediated dilatation, TNT-mediated, evaluation and treatment of obliterating arteriopathies)
- Treatment of varicose veins (Müller's phlebectomy, sclerotherapy with eco-guided foam)
- Treatment of lymphedema with vascular bandages
- Interventional angiology (micro-invasive surgery of chronic venous insufficiency)
