WVU Medicine vascular and endovascular surgeons perform a wide variety of traditional open surgical procedures for the treatment of carotid, aneurysmal, peripheral arterial occlusive disease, and dialysis access construction.
In addition, they have a very busy and active program in endovascular intervention/minimally invasive surgery that includes diagnostic angiography (carotid to tibial, including renal), endovascular aneurysm repair (thoracic and abdominal) using all of the currently FDA-approved devices, peripheral arterial intervention, carotid artery angioplasty and stent placement, dialysis access intervention, and endovenous RF/laser closure of varicose veins.
The division also oversees an active ICAVL accredited non-invasive vascular diagnostic laboratory located at WVU Medicine J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital. The vascular laboratory offers a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic services, including carotid artery duplex imaging; venous duplex imaging; visceral, renal and peripheral arterial duplex imaging; physiologic testing for lower extremity arterial occlusive vascular disease; and ultrasound guided thrombin injection for the treatment of iatrogenic femoral artery false aneurysms.
