Arterial Disease

Arterial Disease
Arterial disease is a condition in which plaque builds up in the arteries that carry blood to your extremities, head, and organs. These plaque deposits can harden over time, resulting in narrowed or blocked arteries, and restricted blood flow throughout the body.

Complications from arterial disease can include: hypertension and kidney failure (kidney artery disease); leg pain, leg ulcers, and gangrene (peripheral arterial disease, or PAD); strokes or mini-strokes (cerebral artery disease); and heart problems.

Several risk factors increase your likelihood of developing arterial disease. These include diabetes, smoking, hypertension, high cholesterol, lack of exercise, obesity, and family history.

At New York Cardiovascular Associates, our medical team includes leading experts in arterial disease diagnosis and treatment. If you are at risk of arterial disease, or have symptoms, your doctor will recommend that you are tested for the disease and related complications. If you are diagnosed with arterial disease, your doctor will use nonsurgical and minimally invasive methods to treat and manage your condition. This includes a focus on conservative treatments like exercise, diet, and medications.
