Arterial Disease

The most common forms of arterial disease include aneurysms, peripheral artery disease and carotid artery disease.

Aneurysms

Aneurysms are dilatations of arteries due to weakness in the vessel wall, and may occur due to hereditary or lifestyle choices.

Carotid Artery Disease

Carotid disease is most often caused by a buildup of fatty plaques in the arterial walls in a process called atherosclerosis, which can lead to problems with blood supply to the brain.

Peripheral Artery Disease

Peripheral artery disease occurs when there is significant narrowing or blockage of arteries, which is also caused by atherosclerosis. Symptoms vary from calf pain on exercise (intermittent claudication) to rest pain and skin ulceration (critical limb ischaemia).
