St. Louis Surgical Consultantís Vascular Disease Ultrasound Center

An accredited facility for vascular testing by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission

Non-invasive testing performed in the office:

  • Venous Ablation Procedure: Assists Physician with all venous ablation procedures that are done in the office. This is a procedure that eliminates flow through an incompetent vein.
  • Carotid Ultrasound: detects build up of plaque in the carotid arteries in the neck that can block the arteries leading to the brain and can potentially cause a stroke.
  • Abdominal Aortic Ultrasound: Evaluates the size of the abdominal aorta to assess for an aneurysm. Perform routine follow up exams after repair of aneurysms.
  • Graft Surveillance: Evaluates the adequacy of blood flow in the arteries in the leg/arm after revascularization surgery.
  • Dialysis Graft Ultrasound: Evaluates patency of dialysis grafts as well as pre-operative vein mapping before the creation of the dialysis graft.
  • Venous Incompetence Study: Checks the veins in the lower legs to see if there is reflux. Reflux in blood flow can lead to worsening varicosities as well as venous ulcers.
  • Lower Extremity Arterial Study: A non invasive study performed by doing segmental pressures, that checks for peripheral vascular disease in the legs.
  • Venous Exam of Upper or Lower Extremities: Checks for blood clots in the veins of the legs or arms.
  • Femoral Artery Evaluation: Assess the arteries in the groin for possible fistula or pseudoaneurysm which can evolve after an invasive procedure or catheter insertion of the groin.
