Take the assessment below to determine if you would be a good candidate for a vascular screening. During each testing, we screen for three types of vascular disease:
- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) - Occurs when the large blood vessel (aorta) that supplies blood to the abdomen, pelvis, and legs becomes abnormally large or balloons outward. An abdominal aortic aneurysm can develop in anyone, but is most often seen in men over age 60 who have one or more risk factors. The larger the aneurysm, the more likely it is to rupture and break open.
- Carotid Artery Disease - The carotid arteries in the neck become narrowed or blocked. When the arteries become narrowed with plaque, the condition is called carotid stenosis. The plaque may slowly block or narrow the carotid artery or cause a clot to form more suddenly. Clots can lead to stroke.
- Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) - A condition of the blood vessels that leads to narrowing and hardening of the arteries that supply the legs and feet. The narrowing of the blood vessels leads to decreased blood flow, which can injure nerves and other tissues.
Vascular disease is a life-altering illness that often has subtle or no symptoms. But early detection and treatment can save you from disability or even death. Please review and answer the questions below. If you answer yes to any of these questions, you may be at risk for vascular disease and might benefit from a vascular screening.
