The vascular system comprises of the network of vessels that transport blood around the body. This include veins (taking blood to the heart), arteries (taking blood away from the heart) and capillaries (connectors).
Medical complications regarding the vascular system are common and can be deadly Blocks in this vessels can obstruct blood flow to various parts of the body causing heart attacks, strokes and other complications which can be fatal. Debilitated blood vessels can burst, causing bleeding internally. If detected early, radiologists would be able to save an individual from future stroke, heart attack, hypertension and early death.
Vascular disease can be hereditary but in some cases, it can be caused by the individuals’ carelessness. He or she may be obese, smoke, have a long standing illness and has not been for a checkup recently, and can come as an addition to other conditions that the individual might have in relation with their heart and blood vessels. Eating healthy and eating a healthy diet could help you to avoid contracting or in some cases, even improve the current position of your condition. Other available choices include laser treatment or surgery.
Vascular disease is when there is an accumulation of harmful materials on the arteries lining which reduces or obstructs blood flow to a particular part or organ of the body. This is what results in the thickening of the arteries at a later time. Symptoms of vascular disease typically comprises of discomfort or pain when performing any activity that includes the lower body (hips, legs, etc.). Treatment options are quite limited and range from prescription medication to varicose vein removal treatment to surgically insert either stents or grafts.
A vascular laser uses light and heat to pierce through the exterior layer of the skin. The piercing effect is done in a way that will reach the affected blood vessels below the skins surface. The blood vessels then are then destroyed by the powerful heat that is concentrated on that particular area.
Obstructions caused by the buildup in the arteries could not be detected as early as one would hope if the individual does not have regular checkups or if he or she lives an unhealthy life such as neglecting their bodies, not following an appropriate diet or cultivating bad habits such as excessive drinking and smoking.
If you have noticed such symptoms, it’s time for you to give up your bad habits, go for a checkup and get yourself some proper treatment before your condition reaches an incurable stage.
