FirstHealth Vascular & Vein providers offer the following procedures and treatments:

 

Minimally invasive atherectomy - We offer minimally invasive procedures for a number of vascular diseases and other conditions related to the circulatory and vascular system, including:

  • Peripheral vascular disease (PVD or PAD)
  • Carotid artery disease (CAS)
  • Venous disease (Varicose and Spider Veins)
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA)
  • End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD)
  • Vascular Wound Care Management     

Lower Extremity revascularization - an operation that is intended to improve the blood flow to your lower extremities to assist with symptoms of leg pain or weakness (claudication) or to assist with improving blood flow to help heal a wound. 

Dialysis access creation and management - Dialysis access surgery or vascular access surgery is performed before dialysis, enabling effective treatment of End Stage Renal Disease. Our Vascular Surgeons provide several types of access surgery options for both forms of dialysis. Arteriovenous (AV) fistula  or arteriovenous grafts are typically used for hemodialysis, whereas peritoneal dialysis access (PD Catheter)  typically involves inserting a long, silicone-based tube into the abdomen.

Vein care including varicose and spider vein treatment - Varicose veins and spider veins are two of the most common vein conditions.  Varicose veins are large, bulging veins caused by weakness in the vein wall or venous reflux disease, whereas spider veins are small, dilated veins near the surface of the skin. Depending on your individual needs, one or more of the following procedures may be recommended.

  • Sclerotherapy – This procedure involves use of a very small needle to inject a hypertonic saline solution into the vein. The solution irritates the vein lining, causing the vein to shrink, close off, and eventually disappear. Multiple veins may be injected during a single treatment session, and treatment sessions last for around 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Foam Sclerotherapy – A procedure similar to traditional sclerotherapy, foam sclerotherapy is usually used on larger varicose veins. The solution Sotradecol or Polidocanol is mixed with air, creating a foam. When injected inside a vein, the foam displaces the blood rather than mixing with it, forming a better contact with the vein wall.
  • VNUS Closure Procedure – VNUS closure is a minimally invasive radiofrequency procedure that treats varicose veins and their underlying cause(s) with little or no pain.
  • Micro-Phlebectomy – This surgical procedure involves the removal of veins through tiny incisions.

 

Regional Hospital and Moore Regional Hospital - Richmond offer vascular radiology labs that provide diagnostic testing for blood vessel problems that occur outside the heart.

The two most common tests are both non-invasive Doppler Ultrasound and Magnetic Resonance Angiography.
