Vascular disease affecting arteries that bring blood and oxygen to the brain. Problems with these arteries can result in dizziness, stroke, arm pain, disability and death.
- Carotid stenosis
Vascular disease resulting from build of up of plaque in the carotid artery. Plaque can narrow the artery or break loose causing a stroke or death.Read More
- Carotid aneurysm
Rare type of vascular disease where the carotid artery has expanded like a balloon. This can result in abnormal flow that can cause stroke or death
- Carotid dissection
A tear in the lining of the carotid artery caused by trauma or fibromuscular dysplasia. This can result in an abnormal vessel prone to clotting that can cause stroke or death.Read More
- Carotid body tumors
Rare tumor of nerve cells that surround the carotid artery in the neck. They are rarely malignant (cancer that spreads) but do continue to grow over time and can cause local nerve damage and be disfiguring.Read More
- Vertebral artery disease
Blockages (plaque) or dissections (tears in artery lining) that affect arteries that go to the part of brain controlling synchronous eye movement, balance, swallowing, consciousness and breathing.Read More
- Subclavian steal syndrome
Blockages (plaque) in the artery going to the arm that is usually asymptomatic but occasionally (25%) can result in arm fatigue or dizziness and rarely loss of consciousness when using the affected arm.Read More
- Subclavian artery aneurysms
Rare type of aneurysm (ballooning) of the artery that goes to the arm. Can cause discoloration of fingers and rarely wounds, ulcers or gangrene of fingertips requiring amputation.
Conditions We Treat
Vascular Disease has many different forms and can affect any part of the body. We specialize in treating vascular disease in all parts of the body except the heart. Interventions we perform can improve the quality of life and importantly prevent stroke, amputation, and death.
