We probably do not fully understand about our vascular condition and diseases, as we cannot see our vascular system directly. However, once it occurs, we are unable to reverse it or stop the process occurring.
Vascular disease affects the circulatory system outside of your heart. It is often referred to as a silent threat, as the symptoms of vascular disease may be sudden or may not present themselves at all.
Your family’s past can help predict your vascular health. Inherited or generic risk factors you are born with cannot be changed, but knowing your family history can help you assess your potential risk of vascular disease.
To treat conditions in the veins and arteries outside of the heart and problems associated with poor blood circulations, you will need to see a vascular surgeon. A vascular surgeon can perform surgery of the aorta, carotid arteries, and lower extremities, including the iliac, femoral, and tibial arteries.
Vascular surgery also involves surgery of veins, for conditions such as May-Thurner syndrome and for varicose veins. In some regions, vascular surgery also includes dialysis surgery and transplant surgery.
It is such an unfortunate that there are only a few vascular surgeons in Indonesia, considering that vascular diseases can attach anyone. Usually people will see the vascular specialists in terminal condition, and only few of them come for consultation or prevention attempts.
