A

Acute vascular thrombosis occurs when a blood clot obstructs a vein. Blockages in these vessels can slow or even stop blood flow and cause serious consequences. Different types of vascular thrombosis occur in different parts of the body.
Aortic aneurysms are an abnormal enlargement of the body’s largest artery, the aorta. They come in two forms: thoracic, which are located in the chest, and abdominal, which are located in the abdomen.
Arteriosclerosis is a condition that occurs when arteries harden and fail to adequately distribute blood throughout the body, which can limit oxygen flow to organs. Atherosclerosis is a subset of the condition which results from the buildup of plaque and other substances in the artery walls.

C

Carotid artery disease occurs when there is damage to the inner layers of the arteries, which supply blood to the brain. Approximately 30 percent of strokes are caused by narrowing or blockages in the carotid arteries on either side of the neck.

D

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is the formation of clots within the deep veins of the body, most commonly in the legs.

K

Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare congenital vascular disorder with three characteristic features: port-wine stain, vein malformations and overgrowth of soft tissues and bones.

M

May-Thurner syndrome occurs when the left iliac vein, which carries blood from your legs and pelvis back to your heart, is compressed by the right iliac artery.
Mesenteric ischemia occurs when blocked arteries restrict blood flow to the small intestine, which can happen either over time (chronic) or suddenly (acute).

P

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a disease in which plaque builds up in the arteries that carry blood to your head, organs, and limbs. When plaque builds up in the body's arteries, the condition is called atherosclerosis. Over time, plaque can harden and narrow the arteries. This limits the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your organs and other parts of your body.

T

Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is a group of disorders that result from the compression of the blood vessels or nerves located in the space between the collarbone and first rib.

V

Varicose veins are bloated, twisted veins that can be seen just under the skin. Any vein may become varicose but it most commonly occurs in the legs.
