In a healthy vascular system, your heart pumps blood through your arteries to other parts of your body to deliver oxygen and essential nutrients. Your veins then bring the blood back to your heart.
If there are blockages in any of your blood vessels or you develop a blood clot, your body may not be getting the oxygen and nutrients it needs to function optimally.
This can cause vascular diseases that increase your risk for long-term health complications, including heart disease, heart attacks, and stroke.
Common types of vascular diseases include:
A common cause of vascular disease is atherosclerosis, a condition where cholesterol builds up in your blood vessels and causes them to narrow or become blocked.
To care for and preserve your vascular health, Cary Cardiology, P.A., offers several vascular services in-office, including:
A variety of vein procedures are available to treat venous insufficiency that causes spider veins and varicose veins.
SAP/PVR testing effectively evaluates blood flow in the arteries of your legs to diagnose and monitor vascular disease.
ABI testing is a non-invasive test to identify peripheral artery disease (PAD) occurring when narrowed arteries reduce blood flow in your lower extremities.
The Cary Cardiology, P.A., offices in Cary and Fuquay-Varina measure for and sell medical-grade compression stockings on-site to improve your vascular health.
Compression stockings help improve blood flow in the veins of your leg. They squeeze your legs gently to help move blood back to your heart and to prevent swelling, varicose veins, and blood clots.
You should schedule a consultation with the cardiovascular specialists at Cary Cardiology, P.A., if you have unexplained symptoms that may relate to vascular disease. These symptoms may include:
If you have restrictions in the blood vessels that carry blood to your brain, it can lead to a stroke. A stroke seldom causes symptoms ahead of time; however, routine blood pressure checks can reduce your risk for stroke.
