Arterial Disorders

Arterial Disorders

Arteries are major "highways" that carry blood through the body from the heart. When these major blood vessels become narrowed or blocked, it becomes difficult for blood to pass through them, which can cause serious health complications. Fortunately, most artery problems can be treated by a vascular surgeon both surgically and medically.

Arterial Conditions

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

Abdominal aortic aneurysm is a balloon-like bulge in the abdominal aorta, a major blood vessel the carries blood from the heart to other vessels in the body.

Carotid Artery Problems

Carotid arteries are in your neck that carry blood to the brain. Narrowing of the vessels and plaque deposits can build up in these arteries, constricting the arteries, affecting efficient blood flow to the brain, which can lead to health problems, including a stroke. 

Peripheral Arterial Disease 

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a chronic condition in which diseased arteries interrupt blood flow to body tissues and organs. This condition can effect lower extremities, such as the legs. 

Treatments for Arterial Conditions

Angioplasty

Angioplasty is a procedure where a tiny balloon is placed via catheter to open blocked arteries.

Stenting

Stenting in a procedure where a tiny wire, mesh, tube is inserted into an artery to hold it open.

Carotid Endarterectomy 

Carotid endarterectomy is a procedure to remove plaque via a small incision in the carotid artery (in your neck).

Carotid Artery Stenting

Carotid Artery Stenting is a procedure where a mesh tube (stent) is inserted via catheter that is inserted through a major artery in the groin, through the femoral artery.

Endovascular Repair

Endovascular repair is the placement of an artificial graft inside a damaged artery.
