The Department of Vascular Sciences and Vascular Surgery at BHARATHIRAJAA HOSPITAL is one of the best in Chennai and it is committed to delivering the latest and world-class tertiary-level comprehensive vascular care. It is based on the principles of preventive, surgical, and endovascular treatment to reduce stroke in high-risk groups, death from aneurysm rupture, limb amputation in diabetic patients, and intravascular arterial and venous clotting. It is based on close follow-up of striving vascular patients to prevent Lower Limbs and their sequels.
We are a multidisciplinary collaboration dedicated to the comprehensive and multidisciplinary care of patients with atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is the process by which fatty substances, cholesterol, and other substances collectively known as plaque accumulate in the lining of arteries. When plaque is fragile and ruptures, it can cause a blood clot that blocks or interrupts blood flow and travels to another part of the body, causing a heart attack, limb loss, or stroke.
We also perform a large number of Aortic Aneurysm Repairs in Chennai both open and endovascular with results at par with International Standards. We have a dedicated hybrid operating room for the longbow, thoracic, thoracoabdominal hybrid, and fenestrated graft repairs.
What is Vascular Surgery?
Vascular surgery is a surgical specialty in which disorders of the vascular system or arteries, veins, and lymphatics are treated by medical therapy, minimally invasive catheterization, and surgical reconstruction. This specialty evolved from general and cardiac surgery and includes the treatment of other vena cava and arteries of the body.
Open surgical and endovascular techniques are used to treat vascular disease. Vascular surgeons are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting all parts of the vascular system except the coronary and intracranial vasculature. Vascular surgeons often assist other physicians in treating traumatic vascular injuries, controlling bleeding, and safely exposing vascular structures. The types of vascular surgery include-

Vascular disease can affect all components of the vascular system. Some of the key vascular complications include-
