Types of Vascular Conditions Treated
On the following pages, learn more about some of the most common types
of vascular conditions and how they are diagnosed and treated:
Do I Have a Vascular Disorder?
The arteries in your body transport oxygen-rich blood from your heart to
the rest of your body, including your limbs and organs. The veins in your
body transport blood back to your heart. Together, arteries and veins
are known as the vascular system. A vascular condition can affect either
veins or arteries. The truth is that everyone is at risk for a vascular
aortic aneurysm screening and
peripheral vascular disease screening, both of which we offer at Washington Township Medical Foundation—may
be a good idea, especially if you are at a higher risk for these conditions.
Ask your doctor if and when screening for vascular disease should become
part of your preventive health plan. Tell your primary care physician
if you are experiencing symptoms connected with a vascular disease or
if you are at risk.
