Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy

Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy

Care for the entire circulatory system

Loyola’s vascular care specialists have an array of skills to treat a wide range of arterial disease, including aneurysms (a bulging in the artery), and narrowing and blockages of the arteries.

Our specialists treat aneurysms of the aorta with leading-edge endovascular treatments, using only catheters and wires. We are one of the few centers in the country that place fenestrated endografts to treat more complex abdominal aortic aneurysms.

Our specialists also treat blockages in the arteries of the legs. Peripheral artery disease is a condition of the blood vessels that leads to narrowing and hardening of the arteries. This narrowing leads to decreased blood flow, which can cause difficulty with walking or, in more extreme cases, wounds. If it is not possible to treat either of these conditions with an intervention using catheters and wires, our specialists are capable of performing open surgical procedures as well, including peripheral bypass.

Related conditions our vascular surgeons treat include narrowing of the arteries to the kidneys, intestine, and brain. We also perform placement of permanent dialysis access. Our specialists are skilled in the minimally invasive treatment of varicose veins.

We are often able to make a diagnosis with a non-invasive test such as an ultrasound or CT scan.
