“For people with health compliants related to inadequate blood circulation in the lower limbs, please seek medical attention to avoid the un-necessary risk of losing a limb”, warned Assistant Professor Dr. Vasil Chervenkov PhD department chief of our vascular surgery and angiology clinic.
According to the 2009 data from the National Health Insurance Fund, the number of amputations related to lower limb vascular disease totaled over 3,300, which could be easily corrected and prevented by timely diagnosis and specialized treatment to save patients limbs. Dr. Chervenkov added that “These unfortunate statistics are exactly why professional partnerships amongst GPs, general surgeons, orthopedic specialists, endocrinologists, and vascular specialists (vascular surgeons and angiologists) is required to provide adequate medical assistance and be able to direct patients to seek treatment on time”.
Each year the vascular surgery and angiology clinic specialists in "Tokuda Hospital Sofia" perform an average of 1300 operations, 70% of which are performed on arterial vessels, while in 45% of the arterial interventions endovascular methods are used. Hybrid vascular interventions are also routinely performed by our vascular specialists.
Vascular surgery and angiology
Our vascular surgery and angiology clinic offers contemporary treatment for a wide range of vascular diseases, while ensuring the maximum comfort of our patients and their relatives during the treatment process.
We provide a comprehensive range of mini-invasive and non-invasive methods to precisely diagnose vascular diseases in order to design precision treatment programs.
Our team provides comprehensive treatments based on their vast professional experience and high technical training for the following vascular issues:
- Peripheral narrowing and obstructions of circulatory blood supply
- Aneurysms and distension of the aorta and peripheral vessels
- Treatment and prevention programs for cerebrovascular diseases
- Emergency vascular diseases: embolism, thrombosis, trauma, lesions, ruptures and others
- Blood supply disruption to the kidneys and other abdominal organs
- Varicose veins and venous thrombosis
- Vascular-related tumors and malformations including hemangiomas, congenital fistula, anatomically and mechanically induced pressure on vascular structures
- Construction of permanent hemodialysis access for dialysis patients
To treat the diseases listed above, we implement coventional surgical techniques and minimally invasive endovascular: balloon dilation, stenting, embolization in order to minimize patient trauma, reduce recovery time, and to shorten their hospital stay.
To treat varicose veins, we routinely use endovascular laser-ablation which is a leading minimally invasive method and poses a preferable alternative to the classic vein stripping treatment techniques.
We also provide comprehensive conservative drug therapies to treat vascular diseases.
