Minimal invasive blood vessel surgery technique performed under local anesthesia is a very successful technique we have used in recent years in vascular patients. The procedure which is used to block the arteries of the heart, legs and neck prevents heart attacks, strokes and gangrene with timely intervention. It saves lives in patients where standard surgery is risky.
Minimally invasive surgery is an operation performed under local anesthesia. It provides great advantage for elderly patients with diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, kidney diseases, chronic bronchitis, COPD and who have high anesthesia risk.
We keep the patient’s consciousness open during the surgery, which shows us whether the surgery was successful or not at the time of the surgery. If we are intervening in a patient with a stroke due to a carotid artery we can see that he started to talk or move his arm and leg during the surgery. We can also observe whether a leg with gangrene can be saved or not during the surgery.
