Vascular Interventional Radiology

There are 5 full-time Vascular Interventional Radiologists in the CMFT Vascular unit, offering a wide range of interventional procedures for vascular and non-vascular conditions. We routinely offer endovascular aneurysm repair, including complex grafts, and emergency procedures for rupture. Most angioplasty procedures are performed as daycases, and thrombolysis for arterial and venous thrombosis is standard practice.

There is a weekly Multi-Disciplinary Team meeting with the Vascular Surgeons to discuss cases.
