WHAT IS VASCULAR SCREENING?

It is a painless test that checks for the buildup of fatty deposits (atherosclerosis) in the arteries of the body. Blood and oxygen is transported around the body by an extensive network of arteries and smaller vessels which together make up the cardiovascular system (or vascular system for short). Any blockages in these arteries can cause sudden and severe illness, even death, depending on where the blockage occurs.

A ‘screening’ is where a person is checked for signs of disease although they show no symptoms. Click here to request an appointment with Dr. Cheema

FAQ

Vascular surgeons are specialists who are highly trained to treat diseases of the vascular system.

Vascular surgery involves surgery of the aorta, carotid arteries, and lower extremities, including the iliac, femoral, and tibial arteries. Vascular surgery also involves surgery of veins, for conditions such as May–Thurner syndrome and for varicose veins.

Vascular surgery and endovascular surgery are both modalities to treat vascular disease. Endovascular describes a minimally invasive approach commonly done through needle puncture and a sheath. Traditional vascular surgery is more invasive and involves incisions, which are more surgical in nature.

The most common vascular diseases are stroke, peripheral artery disease (PAD), abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), carotid artery disease (CAD), arteriovenous malformation (AVM), critical limb ischemia (CLI), pulmonary embolism (blood clots), deep vein thrombosis (DVT), chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), and varicose.

Your incision may be sore for several days. Full recovery from surgery may take 6 to 8 weeks.
