Who is angiohirur?
Who is an angiosurgeon? This question can be asked by those patients who are sent for consultation to a specialist about progressive pathological processes in the lower extremities, cardiopathology, diabetic angiopathy, impaired potency, kidney failure and many other problems. Specialization was called the detachment of Greek words - ἀγγεῖον, which means the vessels and χειρουργική - action by hands.
Angiosurgery as a separate direction appeared relatively recently, in the middle of the last century, together with pulmonology and proctology, however, as science developed over several centuries. An invaluable contribution to vascular surgery was made by such famous doctors as Pirogov, Yasinovsky, Sabaneyev. Multivariate differentiation of surgery as a medical field is associated with the desire of physicians to organ-saving medicine, to one that is capable not only of ectomizing (removing), but, if possible, saving, restoring damaged organs and systems.
