The Vascular Intervention Unit at City International Hospital is one of the centres of excellence in the tertiary specialist care hospitals in HCMC. This unit offers a comprehensive and professional service for patients with cardiac and vascular disease.

The Vascular unit is equipped with the latest tools for screening, diagnosis and treatment for patients with vascular disease. The Vascular Laboratory is a non-invasive diagnostic unit – Non-Invasive Cardiac Lab (NICL). It is equipped with ‘Doppler’ and Duplex ultrasound scanners that are able to screen and diagnose patients with vascular disease safely and accurately. If indicated, the patients may proceed to the state-of-art 64-slice CT Angiography or Magnetic Resonance Angiography. In the treatment of vascular disease, the Vascular Division believes that open procedures (open surgery) and minimal invasive procedures (endovascular procedures) complement each other. Whereas some patients may benefit from endovascular procedures, others may require open surgery, and yet others benefit from a combined approach of endovascular intervention and open surgery. The Vascular Division has an Endovascular suite for these procedures.

The Vascular Division offers Elective consultation as well as Emergency services for urgent conditions like ruptured aortic aneurysms, aortic dissection, acute limb ischemia and vascular trauma.

Arterial Disease

  • Abdominal Aortic aneurysms & Thoracic Aortic aneurysms.
  • Aortic dissection & Dissecting aneurysms.
  • Peripheral arterial diseases: Occlusive diseases | Embolism & Thrombosis | Aneurysms.
  • Diabetic foot and ulcers.
  • Carotid artery diseases: Carotid artery stenosis | Carotid body tumour | Aneurysm.
  • Renovascular hypertension.

Heart Disease

There are several forms and symptoms of heart disease. The most common cause of heart disease is narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, the blood vessels
that supply blood to the heart itself. Below is a list of other heart conditions:

  • Angina (chest pain).
  • Arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm), e.g. Atrial Fibrillation (AF).
  • Cardiomyopathy.
  • Congenital Heart Disease (Paediatric) – Atrial Septal Defect (ASD), Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD), Patent Foramen Ovale, Tetralogy of Fallot.
  • Congestive Heart Failure (CHF).
  • Coronary Artery Disease/ Coronary Heart Disease (CHD).
  • High Cholesterol.
  • Hypertension (High Blood Pressure).
  • Valvular Heart Disease.
  • Structural Heart Disease – Cardiomyopathies, Atrial Septal Defect (ASD).
  • Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD), Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO).
  • Venous Disease.

Varicose veins

  • Deep venous thrombosis.
  • Venous ulcers.


Vascular access procedures for hemodialysis (AVF).
Arteriovenous malformation (AVM).
Traumatic vascular injury.
Hyperhidrosis (Sweaty palms).

Vascular Disease

Vascular disease refers to medical conditions that affect your circulatory system, including diseases of the arteries, veins and lymphatic.As the heart beats, it pumps blood through a system of blood vessels called the circulatory system. The vessels carry blood to every part of the body. Arteries carry blood away from the heart while veins return it. Risk factors for vascular diseases include family history, sedentary lifestyle, diabetes, smoking and obesity. The following are conditions that fall under the category of vascular disease:


  • Aortic aneurysms: Endovascular stent grafts | Open repair.
  • Peripheral arterial diseases: Angioplasty/stenting | Bypass procedures.
  • Carotid artery: Carotid endarterectomy | Carotid angioplasty and stenting | Excision of aneurysms and carotid body tumour.


  • Varicose veins: Open surgery | Endovenous laser therapy | Injection sclerotherapy.


  • Arteriovenous malformation : Excision | Embolisation | Sclerotherapy.
  • Vascular access for hemodialysis: Creation of arteriovenous fistula | Creation of arteriovenous graft | Angioplasty and stenting of central vein occlusions | Solution for multiple access failures.
  • Thoracoscopic sympathectomy.
