Minimally Invasive Vascular Surgery (MIVS) is a highly advanced set of techniques used in cardiovascular surgery to treat complex vascular diseases. It offers a host of potential benefits for patients, including decreased recovery time, reduced risk of infection, improved patient outcomes and reduced costs. By using a minimally invasive approach, many of the complications that traditional open vascular surgery has can be avoided or minimized.
Less Invasive Approach
MIVS relies heavily on an array of diagnostic tests, and advanced imaging and imaging guidance in order to locate and isolate the artery requiring repair. Based on these results, much of the work can be done though tiny incisions and catheters, rather than larger, more invasive open surgeries. This leads to much less trauma and pain for the patient, and greater precision in the placement and repair of the affected artery.
Reduced Recovery Time
With open surgical methods, patients often face long periods of recovery before they can resume regular activities. With MIVS, however, the majority of patients are able to return home the same day with drastically reduced recovery times. With new technology, these procedures can often be performed, even on elderly patients, with much improved recovery times.
Reduced Risk of Infection
One of the biggest dangers of open surgeries, especially in the vascular field, is the risk of infection. By using MIVS, the risk of infection can be drastically reduced. This is because very small, targeted interventions are used, which allow for a much lower risk of bacteria entering into the body and travelling to other organs or areas.
Improved Patient Outcomes
Another major benefit of MIVS is the improved patient outcomes it offers. Thanks to the minimally invasive approach, more precise treatments can be used, leading to fewer indications of complications following treatments and better long-term outcomes. The smaller incisions used in MIVS also mean that patients heal faster and more comfortably.
Finally, MIVS procedures often cost less than more traditional, open procedures. This is because MIVS is often less time consuming and requires fewer resources. This translates to lower hospitalization costs, lower technician man-hours, and lower anesthesia costs.
Minimally Invasive Vascular Surgery is a revolutionary set of techniques used in cardiovascular surgery to treat serious vascular diseases. It offers a host of potential benefits for patients, including reduced recovery times, reduced risk of infection, improved patient outcomes, and reduced costs. MIVS is quickly becoming the preferred method of treatment for many vascular conditions, as its benefits become more widely accepted and adopted. With MIVS, patients can rest assured that they are receiving the most advanced and effective treatments available.
