Help Along the Way

Answers to Your Vessel Repair and Reconstruction Questions

Vessel repair and reconstruction helps restore normal blood flow and functions to the hand, reduces pain and helps improve the ability to heal. 

Blood vessel grafting can also be performed for patients experiencing ischemic conditions. 

This procedure is ideal for patients that have not had success treating their condition with medical management.

For patients with hypothenar hammer syndrome (caused by chronic injury to the blood vessels or arteries in the hand) and autoimmune disorders such as scleroderma or lupus, vessel repair and reconstruction can help improve their condition. 

In most cases, patients experience a 60–80% improvement in blood flow and pain reduction.
