Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a condition where the arteries become narrowed or blocked (occluded) by a build-up of plaque of fatty deposits called atherosclerosis.
An artery is a blood vessel that carries oxygen-rich blood from your heart to all the parts of the body. An aneurysm is a condition where the walls of the artery weaken causing swelling of the artery. This ballooning may increase in size and finally burst leading to haemorrhage (bleeding).
Carotid arteries are a pair of large blood vessels present on either side of the neck that supply blood to the brain. When these arteries get blocked, it leads to a condition known as carotid artery disease.
These are wounds, usually on the legs, feet and toes, that take a long time to heal.
These can develop for numerous reasons. At Sydney Vascular Surgery we offer solutions when the cause is due to compromised venous and/or arterial supply and we provide a vascular surgeon service to the Lady Davidson Wound Clinic where the expert team of wound nurses manage chronic ulcers of all kinds.
The condition in which a blood clot forms in the deep veins of the body is referred to as Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). Clots form when blood thickens and clumps together.
Varicose veins are swollen, bulging and twisted blue veins which are mainly caused due to high blood pressure inside your veins.
The thoracic outlet is a small passageway leading from the base of the neck to the armpit and arm. This small area contains many blood vessels, nerves and muscles.
Renal Messenteric disease is a condition caused due to hardening of renal arteries. Normally, your arteries are smooth and unobstructed on the inside but a sticky substance called ‘plaque’ builds up in the artery walls because of dyslipidemia or presence of both diabetes and hypertension.
The aortic artery is the primary artery carrying oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the entire body. An aortic aneurysm is a bulge in the aortic artery, caused by plaque build-up (cholesterol), which weakens the vessel walls, bulging them and eventually rupturing when left untreated.
The aorta, the largest artery in the body, transfers blood from the heart to the entire body. The thoracic aorta is the part of the aorta that runs down your chest. Thoracic aortic aneurysm is the bulging of the walls due at a weak area of the thoracic aorta.
