Endovascular Surgery Q & A

What is endovascular surgery?

Endovascular surgery is designed to treat issues that affect your blood vessels. You may need this type of surgery to address a blockage in the blood vessel that affects blood circulation.

The surgical team at Coastal Vascular Center offer endovascular surgery as a treatment for conditions like:

  • Aortic disease
  • Carotid artery disease
  • Peripheral artery disease

The goal of surgery is to increase blood flow and prevent long-term heart damage and other health complications.

What’s involved in endovascular surgery?

Endovascular surgery typically involves minimally invasive techniques to access the affected blood vessels. To keep you relaxed and pain-free, your Coastal Vascular Center surgeon provides a sedative.

Your Coastal Vascular Center surgeon makes a small incision near your hip and inserts a graft, a special fabric tube that expands the vessel and increases the space needed for better blood flow. The graft also helps reroute blood flow from an aneurysm or blockage. This loss of blood causes the aneurysm to shrink over time.

To ensure the device is positioned correctly, your surgeon may rely on the guidance of fluoroscopy, a real-time X-ray technology that shows the inner structures of your body. Before completing surgery, your Coastal Vascular Center surgeon ensures blood is flowing properly through the vessel.

How long does it take to recover from endovascular surgery?

Everyone recovers from surgery at their own pace. When the Coastal Vascular Center surgical team uses minimally invasive techniques, you can expect a faster recovery time and less pain than is common with traditional open surgery.

But, depending on whether you have a minimally invasive procedure or require open endovascular surgery, you may have to stay in the hospital for a few days, so the medical team can monitor your incision and your overall health. It can take four to six weeks until you can return to your usual activities. 

Your Coastal Vascular Center physician discusses what to expect after surgery during your consultation, so you can plan to take time off from work and other obligations.
