Diagnosis and treatment of diseases of your peripheral arteries and veins

 

Vascular diseases affect the arteries and veins in your body, which conduct oxygen to every living cell. Arteries carry oxygen-rich blood away from your heart. Veins carry oxygen-poor blood back to your heart.

Screenings for Better Heart Health

Age affects arteries, which causes them to thicken and get narrower. When this occurs in the blood vessels leading to the heart, it can lead to coronary heart disease and can cause a heart attack . If this happens in the arteries leading to the brain, it can cause strokes. Arteries can also become narrow in legs which can cause Peripheral Arterial Disease, or PAD. If untreated, PAD can cause sores, pain with walking or even amputation.

Care You Can
Rely On

Arterial diseases can go unnoticed, and if not treated, they can lead to loss of limb, stroke and even death. Symptoms of arterial disease include pain while walking, chest and back pain, headaches, blurred vision and speech impairment. In many cases, vascular conditions are highly treatable, and often times, without surgery, if they are diagnosed early enough.  It is important to seek out medical care at the earliest to prevent escalation of these diseases.

COMMON VASCULAR CONDITIONS

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a very common condition affecting millions of people worldwide. It is estimated that there are currently more than 8 million people with PAD in the United States, but general awareness of the disease is very low. With this lack of awareness, there are many people who go undiagnosed or untreated and suffer with PAD
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)
The aorta is the body's major blood vessel. It runs from your heart, through your chest, and to your abdomen where it divides to supply blood to your legs. An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a blood-filled bulge or ballooning in a part of your aorta that runs through your abdomen.
Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm (TAA)
A thoracic aortic aneurysm is a blood-filled bulge or ballooning in a part of your aorta that runs through your chest. The aorta is your body’s major blood vessel. It runs from your heart, through your chest (which is called the thoracic area), and to your abdomen where it divides to supply blood to your legs.

A thoracic aortic aneurysm is considered serious. The bulge in your thoracic aorta can become weak, and the force of normal blood pressure can cause it to rupture. This can lead to severe pain and massive internal bleeding, or hemorrhage.
