Calling on cutting-edge therapies, our vascular specialists have been at the forefront of the great medical progress that has been made in recent years for the minimally invasive treatment of vascular disease. Endovascular catheters, stents and grafts can be used to avoid what once was the necessity of large incisions during surgeries, and they now are used routinely for treatment and diagnosis of vascular disease.
Patients come to Yale-New Haven for consultations and second opinions, diagnosis and treatment of the full range of vascular conditions including:
- Blocked or narrowed arteries
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Thoracic outlet syndrome
- Open and endovascular repair of thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms
- Carotid and vertebral surgery and stenting
- Renal and visceral artery revascularization
- Lower extremity revascularization and limb salvage
- Varicose veins and venous insufficiency
- Upper extremity and thoracic outlet syndromes
- Long term dialysis access procedures
- Aneurysm repair - traditional open
Our vascular lab is accredited by The Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories (ICAVL), and members of our staff are registered vascular technologists, ensuring the highest quality of care and sophisticated diagnostic testing available.
Vascular procedures, whether they are traditional open surgeries or minimally invasive endovascular interventions, are intricate and complex. As a high-volume vascular center, specialists at Yale-New Haven can routinely perform procedures that are done only occasionally at other locations. They are uniquely qualified to treat all patients including those considered to be high-risk.
