Vascular Surgery

Vascular Surgery

What is Vascular surgery?
Vascular surgery is a specialty discipline in surgery that deals with diseases of the vascular system. This is the circulatory system in the body and it comprises the blood vessels, lymph vessels, and the lymphatic system. The blood vessels include the arteries, veins, and capillaries. The arteries carry blood away from the heart while the veins carry blood to the heart. The capillaries distribute oxygen-rich blood to the body.
The lymph vessels transport the lymphatic fluid, which has blood cells. The lymphatic system draws lymph away from each part of the body. The vascular system can have problems causing diseases. These diseases affect the working of the vascular system. A vascular disease can be treated through vascular surgery.

A vascular surgeon is one who is trained in using surgical techniques to treat different kinds of vascular diseases. The vascular surgeon is responsible for the diagnosis, treatment, and overall management of all vascular diseases.
Why NH?
Narayana Institute of Vascular Sciences is Narayana Health’s commitment to providing latest and world-class tertiary level vascular care, education and research to the people of India and beyond.
It is based on the principles of prevention, surgical and endovascular treatments and strict follow-up of vascular patients endeavoring to prevent strokes in high-risk groups, deaths due to Aneurysm ruptures, Limb Amputation in Diabetics and clotting in lower limb arteries and veins and their sequels.
The department performs over 1200 open and 800 endovascular procedures each year. We also perform large volumes of Aortic Aneurysm Repairs in India, both open and endovascular with results on par with the top institutes of United States of America. We have a dedicated Hybrid Operation Theatre to perform major arch, thoracic and thoracoabdominal hybrid and fenestrated graft repairs at Health City, Bangalore.
We collaborate among the different specialties dedicated to providing comprehensive and interdisciplinary care to patients with atherosclerosis, the process in which fatty materials, cholesterol, and other substances, collectively known as plaque, accumulate in the lining of an artery. When plaques become fragile and rupture, they cause blood clots that can block blood flow or break off and travel to another part of the body, causing a heart attack, limb loss or stroke.
Our Institute’s emphasis on collaboration has shown to greatly improve the care patients receive allowing both established and emerging diagnostic and therapeutic methods to be applied, increasing efficiency and reducing risks to patients. Multi-disciplinary team meetings and protocol development an important part of a close partnership with specialties involved in the direct care of our vascular patients.
With the establishment of a non-invasive vascular lab at NH Health City, equipped with the latest multi-lab II and acquisition of TcPO2 machine, we are able to diagnose and treat diabetic feet with vascular compromise.
Convatec and Narayana Health have embarked on an ambitious Diabetic Wound Care and Amputation Prevention Centre at NH Health City, with the latest equipment to assess diabetic wounds and care for them.
The presence of Thrombosis Research Institute at Health City in Bangalore is a great source for detailed investigations of a cause of vascular clotting disorders and research into solutions for better vascular care in India.
Vascular Diseases
The arterial disease affects most people with age, especially in those who have high-risk factors that include patients who suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, a sedentary lifestyle, a family history of vascular disease (e.g. Aneurysms), poor nutritional habits or heavy smokers.
Patients with poor circulation usually have diseased arteries all over their body. Arteries usually affected are in the legs, heart, and neck. The severity of the disease and length of time it goes untreated can make a tremendous difference in the clinical outcome of a vascular disease, characterized by stroke, limb amputations, or death.
Vascular diseases can affect any of the components of the vascular system. Some of the key diseases affecting the vascular systems are:
Peripheral artery disease: This disease causes a blockage of arteries in the legs causing pain in the leg and obstructs circulation. It can cause sores and even lead to gangrene.
Renal artery disease: In this disease, the arteries in the kidney can be blocked. This can cause high blood pressure, kidney failure, and can even lead to heart failure.
Raynaud’s phenomenon: The arteries of the finger are affected and can cause spasms. This happens usually due to cold weather.

Narayana Health Health for all

At Narayana Health, we are convinced that 'quality' and 'lowest cost' are not mutually exclusive when it comes to healthcare delivery. In fact, we are well on our way to demonstrate that we are not running our institution as just another number-only business, but are attractively placed to create an affordable, globally-benchmarked quality-driven healthcare services model. At Narayana Health, we will continue to trust what has worked for us in the past. We will keep our model predominantly asset-light; we will reinvest our accruals; we will engage with governments for land and help them achieve affordable healthcare promises made to their constituencies; we will rent premises from private owners and create small-to-large clinics within existing hospitals. As a result of this flexible approach, we will commission hospitals, medical facilities, and clinics across the breadth of this country, getting closer to patients and taking the promise of quality affordable healthcare to the doorstep of the country's millions. It is this exciting prospect that stokes my motivation to do bigger and better for the glory of the country that is mine.
