Vascular disease and blood vessel disorders are common among older adults. Doylestown Health's highly experienced endovascular surgeons perform complex open surgeries and minimally-invasive endovascular treatments in a sophisticated hybrid operating room.

What is Vascular Disease?

Vascular disease is any abnormal condition of the veins and arteries that, if left undiagnosed or untreated, can lead to complex health conditions. Blocked arteries can result in poor blood flow to sustain vital structures and weakened arteries that can eventually burst (aneurysms).

Common vascular diseases include stroke, abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), peripheral artery disease (PAD), carotid artery disease (CAD), pulmonary embolism (blood clots), deep vein thrombosis (DVT), chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), and varicose veins.

Vascular diseases and conditions include:
  • Abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections (tears in the wall of the artery)
  • Arteriosclerosis (also known as hardening of the arteries)
  • Carotid blockages/cerebrovascular disease
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Diabetes-related circulatory problems and wounds
  • High blood pressure
  • Kidney disease requiring dialysis
  • Limb Ischemia
  • Lymphedema
  • Mesenteric artery disease (intestinal blood flow)
  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and limb ischemia (blockages in blood flow that can lead to pain or even loss of limb)
  • Peripheral artery aneurysms
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Renal artery disease
  • Varicose veins
