Vascular surgery

Centrokinetic has a dedicated department of vascular surgery, coordinated by Dr. Neagu Cristina, primary doctor of vascular surgery, specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of blood diseases, that is, of the arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels.

What conditions do we treat in within the vascular surgery department?

  • Peripheral obstructive arterial condition: disease in in which the arteries in the legs narrow and they block due to cholesterol deposits.
  • Arterial aneurysmal disease: is a dilation, a widening in the shape of a balloon of an artery, due to the weakening of the wall which can occur at any level.
  • Carotid disease: is a serious health problem, because it can produce a stroke. The brain receives blood with oxygen and nutrients through 4 arteries: 2 arteries carotid arteries and 2 vertebral arteries. Carotid atherosclerosis (carotid disease) occurs when the arteries thicken with cholesterol and calcium deposits.
  • Atherosclerotic disease: a condition that involves deposition of fats (mainly cholesterol) in the artery wall, under form of atherosclerotic plaques, which can impede circulation blood. These plates narrow progressively and eventually clogs the arteries or they can crack, causing blood clots.
  • Varicose veins: involves the existence of dilated veins, visible under the skin, twisted, blue. Untreated, they are worsens over time, causing pain, or feeling of heaviness foot fatigue, skin blemishes and, in the final stage, even ulcerations.
  • Chronic venous insufficiency: condition in which the veins in the legs cannot carry enough blood back to the heart. People with chronic venous insufficiency will notice the thickening of the ankles and they will feel their heavy legs and live. In addition, they will feel pain while walking or immediately after what stop. Patients with chronic venous insufficiency have frequently varicose veins.
  • Deep vein thrombosis: means the production of a thrombus (blood clot) in one of the deep veins. Of usually deep vein thrombosis occurs in the veins of legs, thighs or pelvis, less often in other parts of the body. Deep vein thrombosis is a dangerous disease because pieces called emboli can break from the formed clot, which circulate in the blood and stop in the lungs. This one The complication is called pulmonary embolism and it is an emergency medical. Massive pulmonary embolism can be fatal.
  • Pulmonary embolism means a sudden blockage of a pulmonary arteries with a blood clot that left from veins with thrombosis of the foot. The clot that forms in one part of the body and circulates through the blood in another part of the body is called the embolus. Thus, in most cases, Pulmonary embolism is a complication of venous thrombosis deep.

Another problem that occurs in the veins and can lead to embolism, severely affecting health is thrombophlebitis, an inflammation of the wall of a vein that leads to the formation of blood clots, which can lead to total or partial blockage.


What investigations and treatments we perform within vascular surgery department?

  • Doppler ultrasound for limbs: is the method noninvasive, non-radiant and painless scanning, which offers Accurate images of blood vessels, structure and their dimensions. Doppler ultrasound measures blood flow (direction, speed, volume) from arteries or veins.
  • Doppler ultrasound of the carotid arteries : a simple method by which we investigate the arteries at the level neck (at the cervical level), through them the blood flows to the brain. There are situations in which these vessels are narrowed or even completely closed when action can be taken to prevent it serious brain complications such as or stroke.
  • Treatment of chronic wounds associated with arterial or venous ulcer involves identification and solving the causes, aims to support the processes of own healing of the body, to prevent the appearance of infection at the level of the wound or if the patient arrives with an infected wound, to reduce the microbial load and eliminate the infection from organism.
  • The treatment of bedsores is made depending on the stage of the lesions. The first and the most important step is to remove the pressure on the affected area by changing the patient's position so that the flow blood can easily reach the tissues. Subsequent, the intake of the vascular surgeon is essential for infection prevention and treatment.
  • Debridement care of the diabetic foot: A complication of diabetes that can occurs in any patient as a direct result of this condition. This condition includes: ulceration, infection and osteoarthropathy, known also as Charcot's foot.
  • Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to treat varicose veins and vessels visible superficial (venectasia, reticular veins). It is free of real risks and has a guaranteed effectiveness and lasting effect over time.
