Vascular disease restricts a patient’s blood from flowing freely through the arteries and veins that make up the body’s circulatory system, and frequently has no warning signs – which is why it’s known as the silent disease.

Healthy blood vessels expand and contract easily and have smooth inner walls that allow blood to circulate freely. For a variety of reasons – including age, genetics, and lifestyle choices – plaque can build up inside the blood vessel over time, restricting blood flow, or even resulting in a total blockage, causing vascular disease. The same factors can also cause vessel walls to stiffen, further restricting blood circulation.

Procedures

Vascular procedures involve the repair and reconstruction of damage to the vascular system of the body, including the arteries and veins. Vascular surgery and endovascular surgery are both ways to treat vascular diseases. While traditional vascular surgery is more invasive and more surgical in nature, endovascular describes a minimally invasive approach commonly done through needle puncture and a sheath where repair is done from inside the blood vessels…
