Get the Facts About Vascular Disease

Vascular disease is a blood circulation disorder that causes the blood vessels outside of your heart and brain to narrow, block or spasm. Disorders in the vascular system — a large network of blood vessels throughout the body — can cause a range of health issues that can be severe or even fatal.

Vascular disease can cause pain and fatigue, often in your legs, and especially during exercise. Many people with vascular disease experience narrowing or blockage from atherosclerosis — fatty deposits that can clog arteries. This can cause a heart attack, sudden cardiac arrest or stroke.

Common vascular diseases include:

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA)

Carotid artery disease

Peripheral artery disease (PAD)

If you have carotid artery disease or peripheral artery disease, getting regular treatment with a cardiovascular provider can help lower your risk of stroke.
