The department of vascular surgery of Centro Medico Santagostino deals with the diagnosis of arterial diseases such as: sclerotic arterial disease of legs (intermittent claudication and legs ulcers), carotid arterial district and aortic abdominal aneurysms.
The vascular surgeon also deals with the diabetic foot and advanced medications.
For ischemic stroke prevention we performe the carotid doppler ultrasound, that allows early to assess the possible presence of carotid plaques and to set a suitable treatment program.
For the diagnosis of the aneurysm we performe the aorta doppler ultrasound which evaluates, in addition to the vessel structure, the flow of the blood.
For iliac arterial diseases we performe the abdominal doppler ultrasound, to evaluate the degree of stenosis of the artery.
