Doctor Isabelle DI CENTA


What is vascular surgery?


Vascular surgery is a surgical specialisation which covers patients with conditions affecting the arteries and veins, except for those conditions which affect the cerebral and coronary arteries.


It is structured around two main axes:


  • arterial surgery: which treats acute arterial occlusions (acute limbic ischaemia) and chronic arterial blockages (arteritis) as well as arterial aneurysms;
  • venal surgery: which treats the chronic vein failures behind varicose veins.




What pathologies does the department cover?


The Hôpital Foch vascular surgery unit treats all adult vascular pathologies:

  • Thoraco-abdominal aorta pathology: aortal or iliac aneurysms, aorto-iliac occlusions or stenoses.
  • Arterial conditions affecting the lower limbs (femoral or popliteal arteries) and the neck (carotid, sub-clavicle arteries, etc.).
  • Venal conditions (varicose veins) generally an outpatient procedure.
  • Haemodialysis access surgery.



The vascular surgery department is located on level -2 of the Suresnes Building (Yellow Sector).
