​Section of Vascular Surgery

AKUH's Section of Vascular Surgery performs a variety of procedures for a broad spectrum of vascular diseases. These may include blockages in the arteries and veins, blood clots, aneurysms, varicose veins, and any other problem that involves the blood vessels.

Peripheral Artery Disease, common in smokers, diabetics, and people suffering from high blood pressure, is one of the many diseases our Vascular surgeons have expertise in. Some of the procedures offered by our Vascular Surgeons include the below:

  • Haemodialysis access surgery: Both routine and complex haemodialysis access created to improve patient care
  • Varicose veins procedures: These include endovenous ablation of varicose veins, injection sclerotherapy, stab avulsions, and open surgery for varicose veins.
  • Carotid Endarterectomy: To treat narrowed carotid arteries and decrease the risk of stroke.Peripheral Angioplasty: Peripheral vascular disease is prevalent, especially in the elderly, smokers, and diabetic patients. Peripheral angioplasty helps to open blocked arteries and improves blood supply to help wounds heal, and pain subside.
  • Endovascular and open Aortic Aneurysm  Repair: This is to repair abdominal aortic aneurysms and prevent them from rupturing.
  • Open Bypass surgery: Using either native vein or prosthetic graft, this surgery is done to save limbs from major amputation and to treat lifestyle-limiting claudication.
  • Port catheter insertion: providing access for long-term chemotherapy.
  • Excision of cervical rib to relieve compression on the nerve or the artery.
