Minimally-Invasive Endovascular Surgery

Surgeons Preparing Equipment For Surgery Wearing Hospital Mask ConcentratingEndovascular surgery covers minimally invasive, catheter-based procedures performed at Deborah Heart and Lung Center.

Endovascular surgery

repairs include:

  • Aneurysms
  • Carotid artery disease
  • Peripheral artery disease

Every patient referred to Deborah for a vascular condition undergoes a thorough screening to assess his or her health status and the progression of the condition. While our first priority is to address the patient’s condition with medication and/or a diet and exercise program, some patients will require surgical intervention. Our interventional cardiologists or vascular surgeons  may recommend endovascular procedures whenever appropriate because they are less invasive.

Endovascular surgery may be recommended for any of the following:

  • Carotid stenting for critical carotid stenosis
  • TCAR (Transcarotid artery revascularization) for critical carotid stenosis
  • Endovascular revascularization for peripheral arterial
  • Endovascular therapies for limb salvage disease
  • Endovascular therapies for dialysis access maintenance
  • Endovenous ablation for varicose veins
  • Endovascular repair for abdominal aortic aneurysms
  • Endovascular repair of thoracic aortic aneurysms

Why Deborah?

Through its fellowship program, Deborah is training a new generation of vascular surgeons. The vascular surgery fellowship program builds upon the core education of general surgery to provide the knowledge, skills, and abilities to develop proficiency and surgical judgment in the diagnosis and management of diseases of the arterial, venous, and lymphatic circulatory systems. Fellows are trained in both open and endovascular approaches to vascular disease and bring highly talented resources to the vascular surgery program.

Do Your Legs Hurt?

In the United States, more than 18 million Americans suffer from Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) which is the hardening of the arteries — also known as “atherosclerosis” — in the limbs, often the legs. Approximately 20 percent of individuals over the age of 60 have PAD, and many of those with PAD do not experience any symptoms, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Peripheral Artery Disease can reduce mobility and increase the risk for heart attack and stroke. If left untreated, PAD can be fatal.

Because vascular disease develops over time, it is important to lead a healthy lifestyle through awareness, prevention and risk reduction.
