Your heart's arteries may become blocked or narrowed due to a buildup of cholesterol, cells or other substances (plaque). Sometimes a blood clot can form or worsen, and it can completely block blood flow, causing a heart attack. Angioplasty is a surgery done to open blocked arteries and restore normal blood flow. It is not a major surgery and causes little pain.
Anti-coagulant medications, also known as blood thinners, are used to prevent blood clots that can obstruct veins and arteries. They are given to a variety of patients, including those undergoing open heart or bypass surgery, those on prolonged bed rest and those who are prone to strokes or heart attacks.
Artery bypass surgery is a surgical procedure in which an alternative pathway is created for blood flow to reroute your blood supply around a blocked artery.
Atherectomy is a surgical procedure in which a catheter with a sharp blade is used to remove plaque from a blood vessel.

There are many types of diagnostic vascular procedures, which are used to detect blockages or narrowing of the veins and arteries. These procedures provide critical diagnostic information in the evaluation of a variety of vascular diseases.

E

Endovenous laser therapy is a minimally invasive method of treating varicose veins (swollen, twisted veins) with laser energy.

H

Hemodialysis is a treatment method that involves using a machine to filter and return blood to the body when a kidney is no longer healthy enough to do so.

M

Microphlebectomy is a minimally invasive treatment most commonly used to treat large varicose veins located near the surface of the skin.

R

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to treat varicose veins.

S

Sclerotherapy is a treatment for varicose and spider veins, which involves injecting a solution directly into the vein.

T

TCAR is a ground-breaking surgical procedure used to treat plaque in the carotid artery, which if left untreated could cause a stroke.
