Treatment for most vascular conditions begins with conservative options such as medication and lifestyle changes. Your doctor may recommend surgery when your condition persists or if it’s life-threatening.
Vascular conditions that may need surgical intervention include:
Atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, is often associated with the arteries supplying blood to your heart, but it may occur in any artery in your body. It’s responsible for two of the most common vascular diseases:
PAD occurs when plaque accumulates in arteries that supply blood to your legs, stomach, arms, and head. It most often affects your legs, causing pain and fatigue while walking.
The carotid arteries carry blood up your neck and to your brain. When they develop atherosclerosis, you’re at risk for having a stroke. About 80% of strokes arise when blood flow to the brain stops due to carotid artery disease.
