What is Vascular Surgery?

In an article by Euracare, vascular surgery is defined as “a surgical subspecialty in which diseases of the vascular system, or arteries, veins, and lymphatic circulation are managed by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction.”

What Are The Possible Errors A Surgeon Can Make During Vascular Surgery?

Mason (2013), in her article, discussed the risks involved in vascular surgeries. She stated that “the unique and complex vascular and endovascular theatre environment is associated with significant risks of patient harm and procedural inefficiency.
