The Vascular Surgery Department

The Vascular Surgery Department headed by Academician A. Pokrovsky of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences has been successful in developing many aspects of vascular surgery, such as treatment of aortic arch and carotid/vertebral artery diseases, thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurism, renovascular hypertension, and occlusive diseases of lower limb arteries.

The department has unique experience in treating nonspecific aortoarteritis (Takayasu disease). Its professionals have developed basic principles of treating arterial occlusions of the lower leg and foot with critical limb ischemia, including unique operative interventions for venous blood flow arterialization in patients suffering of Buerger's thromboangitis and atherosclerotic lesions.

Unique experience has been acquired in examination of patients with congenital vascular diseases (angiodysplasia). Modern methods of examination and treatment of such patients using X-ray endovascular surgery have been developed under the leadership of Prof. V. Dan. Substantial experience has been accumulated in treating venous pathologies and limb lymphedema.
