Vascular Biology and Vascular Surgery
The study of diseases of the circulatory and the lymphatic system is called angiology. Vascular system is composed of blood vessels, especially arteries and veins, which carry blood and lymph throughout the human body. These are involved in various functions which include:
- Transportation of blood, proteins, nutrients, O2, CO2 and other molecules
- Tissue regeneration and reorganization
- Developmental processes
- Immune response
- Wound healing
The vascular network is designed to accommodate varying levels of blood flow and pressure, depending upon their location within the body. Without the smooth flowing of blood, human body can’t function properly.
Vascular surgery is a sub-speciality of surgical procedures where vascular diseases are treated by medical therapy and other minimally invasive procedures. Vascular diseases can some time be treated by non-surgical procedures.
