Vascular

Vascular medicine focuses on the non-invasive diagnosis and treatment of all problems involving the circulatory system outside of the heart. These problems may involve:

  • arteries, which deliver blood from the heart to the tissues
  • veins, which deliver blood back to the heart
  • lymphatic system, which transports lymph fluid back to the circulation

Commonly encountered conditions in the field of Vascular Medicine include:

  • peripheral arterial disease - blockages in the leg arteries; may cause pain with walking
  • carotid artery stenosis - blockages in the neck arteries; may lead to a stroke
  • renal artery stenosis - blockages in the kidney arteries; may contribute to high blood pressure and/or chronic kidney disease
  • abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) - a bulging of the aorta that may cause it to rupture
  • venous problems such as deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and chronic venous insufficiency
  • Raynaud’s, vasculitis, lymphedema and other less common vascular conditions
