What Is A Vascular Specialist?

A vascular specialist is a physician who completes specialized training and exams in cardiology and then performs additional pre-and post-operative training and examinations in angioplasty, vascular ultrasound, vascular physics, coronary artery disease and echocardiography. A vascular specialist is also a thoracic specialist who has an extensive background in cardiovascular disease, cardiac surgery, echocardiography, and coronary heart disease. He or she is a specialist who is able to diagnose and treat disorders that affect the cardiovascular systems, veins and arteries. These specialists may perform angioplasty, angiotracinomy and Vascualization therapy.Have a look at Pulse Vascular for more info on this.

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) affects the walls of the vessels supplying the brain and spinal cord with blood. The disease occurs when there is a buildup of cholesterol (cholesterol that is present in the blood, but not in the body) in the vessels that supply the brain, spinal cord and peripheral arteries. Often, these vessels become narrowed, clogged, or narrowed by thickened arterial walls. A vascular specialist can diagnose this condition and treat it and thereby improve the patient’s quality of life. Treatments for peripheral arterial disease include balloon angioplasty, coronary artery revascularization and dilation and brachioplasty, which is the placement of an artificial vessel within the body.

When a patient has suffered a stroke, their brain’s communication center (the hypothalamus) is damaged, resulting in aphasia (a reduction in consciousness). This can occur in one stroke or in a series of strokes if it is left untreated. In addition, left untreated, it can result in irreversible loss of motor functions (paralysis) and cognitive loss (faintness). A vascular specialist can treat these symptoms and prevent permanent damage from occurring to the patient by evaluating and diagnosing the underlying causes of stroke.
