Our vascular system is the network of blood vessels, including veins, arteries and capillaries, which carry blood to and from the heart. Vascular health is important in the prevention of stroke, heart attack, peripheral vascular disease and other major health conditions.
Peripheral vascular disease (PVD), the most common vascular disease, occurs when inflammation, tissue damage or fatty build-ups block blood flow in the blood vessels. When part of the body such as the arm or leg do not get enough blood, cramping, discomfort and other more serious problems may occur.
BayCare Health System is committed to vascular disease prevention through education and early diagnosis. We offer regular screenings, as well as nonsurgical and surgical treatment options.
