The aorta is the largest artery in your body, and it carries blood away from your heart. When it reaches your abdomen, it is called the abdominal aorta. When a weak area of the abdominal aorta expands or bulges, it is called an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA).
Carotid artery stenosis is the narrowing of the carotid arteries. These are the main arteries in the neck that supply blood to the brain. Carotid artery stenosis, also called carotid artery disease, is a major risk factor for ischemic stroke. (This is the most common form of stroke and is usually caused by a blood clot plugging an artery.)
If the renal angiogram reveals a narrowing of the renal arteries, a balloon-tipped catheter can be used to stretch open the narrowing. The technique of stretching arteries open with a balloon is called angioplasty. The technique is more formally known as percutaneous transluminal angioplasty or PTA for short.
Varicose veins are swollen veins that you can see through your skin. They often look blue, bulging, and twisted. Left untreated, varicose veins may worsen over time. Large varicose veins can cause aching and feelings of fatigue as well as skin changes like rashes, redness, and sores.
Duplex Ultrasound clarifies the site of the disease and whether it is narrowing or a complete blockage. It also measures the length of the occlusion and the type of disease in the artery. All this information is necessary to be able to advise you on the best possible treatment for you.
An angiogram is a test performed to obtain an extremely precise picture of your arterial problems prior to any treatment. The test involves the insertion of a fine tube over a guidewire into the artery from your groin. An x-ray visible dye (contrast) is injected to outline all the arteries.
