These are the medical specialties that study and treat diseases that affect both the blood vessels (that is, the arteries and veins) and the lymph vessels. The angiologist is the doctor who performs the prevention, diagnosis, and clinical treatment of pathologies. Yet, the vascular surgeon is responsible for treating illnesses by invasive methods.

In some cases, they are done conventionally, that is, with incisions outside the veins. However, there are cases that require endovascular surgery, performed through the interior of veins and arteries with the use, for example, of catheters and stents (in cases of angioplasty).
