Microvasular Surgery in India
The advanced medical treatments available in India have made it a popular destination for medical tours. Microvascular surgery is one of them. It is the surgery on very small blood vessels such as those only 3 to 5 millimeters in diameter. Microvascular surgery is done through an operating-room microscope using specialized instruments and tiny needles with ultrafine sutures. It is used to reattach severed fingers, hands, arms, and another amputated parts to the body by reconnecting the small blood vessels and restoring the circulation before the tissue starts to die. It also can be used in reconstructive surgery. At the Joint Commission International accredited Hospitals in India, the Department of Neuro Surgery offers the latest medical facilities in microvascular surgery. They provide comprehensive medical and surgical care for patients considering microvascular surgery at cities like Bangalore, Hyderabad , Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai.
Microvascular surgery includes novel and intricate surgical techniques to join together tiny blood vessels and helps to transfer large amount of tissues e.g. muscle, bone, tendon or cartilage from distant parts of the body to reconstruct wounds and tissue defects. It is carried out routinely for reconstruction in the head and neck area, upper and lower extremity and for re-implantation of a finger, hand or a limb following accidental amputation. The surgery techniques require great care and accuracy and are performed with the aid of a microscope, specialized instruments and tiny needles with ultra fine sutures. It is technically demanding; it is very important for your microvascular surgeon to perform a careful pre-operative assessment. With the advent of animation technology, most facial microvascular surgeons use facial animation as part of pre-operative work-up. Selection of donor site for free skin flap grafting is crucial in the successful outcome of the surgery. Make sure that patient inform the plastic surgeon about the health conditions and all the prescription and non-prescription medications that you are taking. Stop smoking at least 2 weeks before microvascular surgery and do not smoke for at least 2 weeks after the surgery. Inform the surgeon if patient have any problems with clotting of your blood or if he is taking any blood thinning medications. Patient will be hospitalized for about a week following microvascular surgery. Avoid any pressure on the surgery site that might compromise the blood supply. Antibiotics, aspirin are given and a close observation is made for hematoma formation. Clinical assessment for viability of skin flap is confirmed based on the color, texture, vascularity and a daily prick test.
