In brief: Blood vessel surgery

Vascular surgery is a surgical specialty that focuses on abnormalities of the blood vessels.
Some procedures are done with wires, catheters, balloons, stents and several other small devices through small puncture sites in the arteries. Other procedures are done in the operating room with incisions and suturing of grafts to correct blockages or aneurysms.
