Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)
An Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) occurs when a weak area of the abdominal aorta expands or bulges.
Carotid Artery Disease & Stroke
Carotid artery disease occurs when these arteries become narrowed or blocked due to plaque buildup on the artery walls.
Peripheral Vascular Disease
Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) is a circulation disorder that affects blood vessels (arteries and veins) outside the heart and brain.
Varicose veins are twisted, enlarged veins that are visible just beneath the surface of the skin and can develop anywhere in the body.
The Vascular System
The vascular system consists of arteries and veins that circulate blood throughout the body. Arteries carry oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the cells of the body’s tissues. Veins return the blood from the body back to the heart. The vascular system is vital to your body’s everyday day function impacting your respiratory, digestive and urinary systems and helping your body maintain temperature control.
Vascular diseases affect the veins and arteries, often reducing or obstructing blood flow due to blockage or damage. Each disease has characteristics that make it different than the others, but there are common controllable risk factors for all:
Exercise and fitness
Diet and nutrition
