Vascular Surgery

The Procedure

Vascular Surgery involves surgery of the major blood vessels, including the carotid artery feeding the brain, the entire aorta from the heart down until it splits into each leg, as well as arteries of the extremities, and even the arteries of the intestines.


Possible complications include:

  • Stroke
  • Nerve injury
  • Bleeding
  • Infection,
  • Kidney failure
  • Sexual impotence

Medical Negligence

The above mentioned risks and complications are known to occur in vascular surgery and such complications do not necessarily constitute deviation from the medical standard of care. The following examples however may be considered as medical negligence:

  • Substandard technique in the construction of the connection between the arteries.  This may be the result of poor surgical technique.
  • Failure to timely diagnose and treat a complication from the surgery despite clinical evidence of such.
