Thread veins (telangiectasia varicose veins) appear as fine clusters of vessels in the skin, usually on the face or legs, and occur due to the weakening of valves in the blood vessels.
Aortic Aneurysm Repair
An aneurysm is simply a weakening and bulging of the aortic wall. The aorta is the main blood vessel that runs from the heart down through the chest and tummy.
Arterial Disease of the Leg
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a chronic condition caused by fatty deposits (atheroma) in the blood vessels, which cause them to narrow (atherosclerosis) and reduces blood flow to the legs.
Carotid Surgery for Stroke Prevention
Fatty deposits can build up in the carotid arteries in the neck, narrowing the vessels and increasing your risk of stroke; this is called carotid artery disease, or carotid artery stenosis.
