Endovascular surgery:
what it is and what it is used for

Generally, surgeries are more complex interventions, which cause fear in most patients because of the possibility of complications and requirements for hospitalisation and recovery.

However, endovascular surgery has a different profile, as it is a minimally invasive procedure, performed by inserting a catheter into the blood vessels. Thus, it is not necessary to make cuts in the skin, as in conventional surgeries.

- What is endovascular surgery:

This is an area of vascular surgery that treats circulation problems through catheters, which consist of thin tubes guided by monitors, which navigate through the circulatory system. It is a treatment that requires small surgical incisions, and in many cases, can be performed with a simple venous or arterial puncture, hole in the groin, with a recovery time generally much shorter compared to other conventional surgical procedures.

- How endovascular surgery is performed:

The catheters are controlled by means of haemodynamic equipment, or surgical arch. They allow veins and arteries to be visualised with X-rays and contrast.

The greatest advantage of endovascular surgery is the possibility of treating serious diseases in parts of the body that are difficult to access, with a lower risk procedure.

Since it is not an invasive surgery, the chances of early discharge are very high for patients. Besides, the rate of infections and other complications is lower, as well as the hospitalisation and recovery time.

- What endovascular surgery is for:

This type of procedure is fundamental for the treatment of various medical conditions and arterial problems such as aneurysm, carotid disease, obstructive arterial disease, uterine myomas, aortic dissection, venous problems such as varicose veins and venous thrombosis.

And one of the essential products to perform this type of procedure is the use of the Speed Cross Introducer Sheath, an MSB product, which allows access and facilitates the percutaneous introduction of guide wires, catheters, micro catheters, Stents among other medical devices into the vascular system, which offers the physician good access for the treatment of diseases in femoral, popliteal and infra-popliteal arteries, among others.

MSB offers the best products for each type of treatment, produced with state-of-the-art technology to bring more practicality to doctors and comfort to patients.
