The Department of Vascular Surgery performs diagnosis and treatment of arterial and venous diseases, offering contemporary effective treatment of all forms of atherosclerosis, thrombosis and peripheral arterial embolism, aneurysms, venous thrombosis and thrombophlebitis, varicose, vascular trauma, arteriovenous malformations (AVM). The Department of Vascular Surgery is working in cooperation with the Department of Angiology and Phlebology treating in full arterial and venous diseases. The Department has patient’s rooms and two operation theaters at its disposal. The team consists of five vascular surgeons; Mr. Stefan Stefanov, MD, is Head of the Department of Vascular Surgery.
The department works with a C-arm angiography system for invasive diagnosis and endovascular treatment. In addition, a CT angiography or conventional angiography can be carried out, if necessary.
The following major diseases can be diagnosed and treated in the Department:
All forms of non-coronary atherosclerosis, causing vascular gangrenes:
- Peripheral arterial disease (PAD)

- Atherosclerotic disease of the abdominal aorta and its branches – kidney and gastrointestinal
- Acute and chronic peripheral embolism and thrombosis
- Stenotic and thrombotic lesions of arteries of the upper extremities – subclavian, axilaris, brachialis, radialis and ulnaris arteries
- Diabetic foot
- Inflammatory lesions of the vessels – Buerger’s disease
- Coronary arteriitis and other arteriites
- Aortic and Peripheral Arterial Aneurysms
- Arteriovenous fistulae
- Superficial Thrombophlebitis and Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
