Vascular Care at Johnson City Medical Center

Expert vascular, peripheral artery and heart care services

The vascular system is the system of blood vessels that includes arteries, veins and lymph vessels. The arteries and veins carry blood from the heart to the tissues throughout your body, and back again. Vascular disease involves occlusion – or narrowing of the arteries by plaques, which can cause reduces blood flow through vessels to the arms, leg, head and neck, as well as to the abdominal organs, such as the kidneys and bowel. Ballooning of the arteries – usually in the main artery of the body, the aorta, can result in an aortic aneurysm. Numerous problems can result from these diseases. These problems can range from leg pain during physical activity (claudication) to deterioration of skin leading to ulcers or gangrene.
