Vascular Disease

Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute provides screening, diagnosis, prevention and treatment services for vascular disease. Our physicians work with you to help you manage and treat the condition before it has serious consequences. Our goal is to improve your health and quality of life.

The Institute is the right choice when you or a loved one needs treatment for vascular disease. We offer treatments that include angioplasty, open surgery and minimally invasive vascular surgery in a patient-centered, compassionate setting.

We provide minimally invasive vascular surgery to many patients. Advantages can include less blood loss, decreased pain and a quicker recovery compared to traditional open surgery. Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair, carotid endarterectomy and lower extremity bypass are just a few examples of our state-of-the-art treatments.

The care team at Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute encourages all patients and family members to learn more about conditions and diseases that affect the heart and overall cardiovascular system. The links below provide more information about heart conditions and diseases that might be treated within this program.

Vascular Conditions and Diseases
There are many vascular conditions that require clinical care by a physician or other healthcare professional. Listed in the directory below are some of these conditions, for which we have provided a brief overview.​

To help in the diagnosis of your vascular disease, your physician may recommend you have one or more of the following tests:

  • MRI
  • MRA (magnetic resonance angiograms)
  • Computed tomography (CT)
  • CTA (CT angiograms)
  • Ultrasound examination
​​

When you participate in a vascular disease clinical trial, you get access to the latest treatments and surgical techniques.

Thoracic Surgery


IBV® Valve System is a Humanitarian Use Device intended for the control of prolonged air leaks of the lung following lobectomy, segmentectomy, or lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS ). This valve should be in approximately 2-6 weeks. If the leak does not seal, the valve(s) will be removed within six weeks of being placed. Once a valve is placed (implanted), it will open like a small umbrella and block the flow of air into the leaking lung tissue. This will decrease the air flow and/or stop the air leak, helping the tissue to heal naturally.
