What vascular diseases do we treat?
Your vascular system is an intricate network of blood vessels responsible for delivering vital nutrients and oxygen throughout your body. However, it is susceptible to various conditions that can compromise its function and overall health.
At Vive Vascular, we understand that these medical conditions are more than a diagnosis and have a dramatic impact on your life. Our patient-centered approach ensures personalized treatment plans that consider your individual needs, preferences, and goals.
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
A common vascular condition caused by plaque build-up in the peripheral arteries. Although PAD can occur in any of the peripheral arteries, it most commonly affects
the legs. Symptoms include pain with walking (claudication). Its most severe form is critical limb ischemia which can result in non-healing sores on the feet and if untreated, can lead to amputation.
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths that develop in the uterus, affecting up to 80% of women at some point in their lives. Symptoms include heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, frequent urination, and pain during intercourse. If left untreated, uterine fibroids can lead to sexual dysfunction and fertility problems.
Knee osteoarthritis occurs when the cushioning cartilage in our joints breaks down and the bones rub together, causing pain and inflammation. Genicular artery embolization (GAE) is a minimally-invasive procedure that introduces small particles into the knee joint arteries, thus reducing inflammation and pain.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE) is a non-surgical and minimally-invasive treatment option for enlarged prostates. It involves injecting small particles into the prostate's blood supply to reduce blood flow, leading to gradual shrinkage of the gland.
Bulging in the veins, typically in the lower extremities. Varicose veins are typically caused by chronic venous insufficiency, a condition where the valves inside the veins do not work properly. Varicose veins can be painful and aesthetically problematic.
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
A DVT is a blood clot that is caused by the thickening of the blood flow in the deep veins. Blood clots can be treated by blood thinners or thrombolytic therapy in cases of a large blood clot. Blood clots should be treated quickly to avoid other complications such as pulmonary embolism (PE), a life-threatening condition.
Carotid Artery Disease
A condition of narrowing in the carotid arteries, or the main arteries that supply blood flow to your brain. Carotid artery disease can lead to TIA or stroke if left untreated.
Dialysis access is most commonly referred to as a fistula or dialysis graft. These are used to provide peripheral access for dialysis for patients with end-stage renal disease. A well-functioning access can optimize dialysis and avoid complications from temporary dialysis catheters.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)
AAA refers to the dilation of the aorta, which is the main blood vessel in the body, providing circulation to all organs and extremities. A weakness in the arterial wall causes a bulge in the artery. If untreated, this can lead to aneurysm rupture, a potentially fatal complication.
Aneurysm refers to a dilated blood vessel caused by weakness in the blood vessel wall. Peripheral aneurysms can cause blood clots or bleeding if not treated.
Renal Artery Stenosis
Narrowing of the arteries supplying the kidneys by plaque can lead to high blood pressure or silent loss of kidney function.
Refers to a condition of narrowing in the arteries that supply blood flow to the digestive organs. Mesenteric ischemia can cause weight loss and extreme pain after eating.
