Blood Vessel Repair

Arteries and veins carry blood throughout the body. Injuries to arteries and veins may need to be repaired to maintain blood supply to the affected area.


This is achieved in the operating theatre, under magnification with very fine stitches to repair the damaged blood vessel. Vessels in the fingers and wrist are commonly injured when the hand is lacerated.
