Vascular Surgery | Prince Court Medical Centre

Vascular Surgery


Our vascular surgeons are equipped to diagnose and treat a wide range of vascular conditions, including peripheral artery disease, venous disorders, aneurysms, and more.

What is Vascular Surgery?

Vascular surgery is a specialised field of surgery that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders affecting the blood vessels, including arteries, veins, and lymphatic vessels. Common symptoms that may warrant a referral to a vascular surgeon include:

  • Persistent pain or cramping in the legs, especially during physical activity
  • Swelling in the legs or feet, along with changes in skin colour, such as turning pale, blue, or red
  • Enlarged, twisted veins that are visible under the skin, often in the legs, which cause discomfort, aching, or a heavy feeling
  • Chronic wounds or ulcers, particularly in the legs or feet, that do not heal within a reasonable time
  • Persistent coldness in the hands or feet, even in warm environments
  • Erectile dysfunction can be an early sign of vascular disease
  • Persistent abdominal pain or pulsating mass

Vascular Surgical Procedures

  • Arteriovenous Fistula (AVF) Creations – surgical creation of a connection between an artery and a vein, typically in the forearm, to provide long-term access for haemodialysis treatments in patients with kidney failure
  • Transposition of AVF – relocation of an existing arteriovenous fistula to a different location, usually performed when the original site is no longer suitable for haemodialysis access
  • Superficialization of AVF – a procedure that involves repositioning a deep arteriovenous fistula closer to the surface of the skin to facilitate easier access for dialysis treatments
  • Loop Graft Creation – placement of a synthetic tube-shaped graft to create a connection between an artery and vein, commonly used as an alternative access for dialysis when a patient's blood vessels are not suitable for fistula creation
  • Thrombectomy – surgical removal of blood clots (thrombus) from a blood vessel to restore proper blood flow and prevent further complications
  • Vein Patch Repair – a procedure in which a damaged or narrowed blood vessel is repaired using a patch of healthy vein tissue, often used in cases of arterial injury or aneurysm
  • Femoral/Brachial Embolectomy – surgical removal of a blood clot (embolus) that is blocking a major artery in the thigh (femoral) or arm (brachial), aiming to restore blood flow and prevent tissue damage
  • Varicose Vein Surgery – surgical interventions to treat varicose veins, including open procedures such as vein ligation and stripping, as well as minimally invasive techniques like endovenous ablation or glue therapy
  • Lower Limb Bypass Surgery – creation of a new pathway for blood flow using a bypass graft (typically a synthetic graft or vein) to bypass a blocked or narrowed artery in the leg, improving circulation and alleviating symptoms
  • Excision of Pseudoaneurysm – surgical removal of a pseudoaneurysm, which is an abnormal bulging of an artery caused by a tear in the vessel wall, to prevent rupture and potential complications
  • Open Aneurysectomy and Inlay Graft – surgical removal of an aneurysm followed by the placement of a synthetic graft inside the remaining healthy artery to reinforce the weakened area
  • Open Aorto-bifemoral Bypass Surgery – a major surgical procedure that involves creating a bypass using synthetic grafts to redirect blood flow around blocked or narrowed segments of the aorta and restore blood supply to the lower extremities
  • Fistuloplasty – a minimally invasive procedure that involves the use of a balloon catheter to widen and improve blood flow within a narrowed or stenotic arteriovenous fistula
  • Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR) – a less invasive alternative to open surgery for treating abdominal aortic aneurysms, which involves the placement of a stent graft within the aneurysm to reinforce the weakened vessel wall and prevent rupture
  • Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair and Lower Limb Angioplasty – a combination of procedures performed to treat thoracic aortic aneurysms using endovascular techniques, along with angioplasty to improve blood flow in the lower limbs by widening narrowed arteries
