Vascular Surgery

Astria Heart Institute's vascular medicine team has the expertise to provide a full spectrum of care, including:

  • Advanced diagnostic technology: Heart and vascular specialists utilize advanced imaging technology such as computed tomography angiography (CTA) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), or a minimally invasive peripheral angiogram to evaluate and diagnose vascular disease.
  • Risk-factor management: Diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and unhealthful habits such as a sedentary lifestyle, smoking and improper diet can contribute to vascular disease. Astria Heart Institute offers educational and preventive-screening services to help promote healthful practices that contribute to heart and vascular health. A multidisciplinary team can provide a treatment program to manage risk factors to minimize the risk of developing or aggravating vascular disease.
  • Peripheral interventions: Minimally invasive catheter-assisted techniques such as angiogram, angioplasty, atherectomy and stent placement can be used to remove plaque and reopen blocked arteries. Vascular specialists use minimally invasive procedures whenever possible.
