Vascular services provides diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the arteries and veins (circulatory disorders, excluding heart disease). Candover diagnose and treat most circulatory disorders. Commonly these conditions cause walking difficulties, threaten the viability of the limbs, cause blood vessels to weaken and rupture or cause strokes.
Candover offer a modern and up-to-date local service which is easily accessible to patients. We combine the personal touch of a local district general hospital with the specialised expertise of a major vascular centre.
Candover look after patients with:
- Poor circulation (blood flow) to the legs and arms
- Aortic aneurysms
- Leg ulcers
- Vascular complications of diabetes and varicose veins
- Circulatory complications of other rarer conditions
- 24 hour emergency service
Candover run a comprehensive outpatient assessment service for all forms of arterial and venous disease. We see ulcers of all kinds and offer outpatient assessment involving one-stop access to dermatology, arterial and venous opinions.
Candover investigate the circulation with ultrasound, CT, MRI and catheter angiography and give advice on life style, blood pressure and cholesterol. We run screening and surveillance clinics to detect and monitor patients with aortic aneurysms. Minimally invasive treatments include angioplasty, stents and stent-grafts are used where possible and we also undertake bypass (blood vessel replacement) surgery where necessary.
