Care and Treatment of Vascular Diseases

Conditions Treated

Abdominal aortic aneurysm

A bulging, weakened area in the wall of the aorta, resulting in an abnormal widening or ballooning. Also called an AAA. 

Atherosclerosis

A progressive disease in which plaque builds up in the inner lining of an artery causing the artery wall to become thickened and lose elasticity. 

Carotid artery disease

Occurs when the carotid arteries, the main blood vessels that carry oxygenated blood to the brain, become narrowed.

Chronic venous insufficiency

A chronic condition in which the leg veins do not allow blood to travel back to the heart; left untreated, pain, swelling, and leg ulcers may result.

Claudication

A condition characterized by limping because of pain in the thigh, calf, and/or buttocks that occur when walking; may be a symptom of peripheral arterial disease (PAD).

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)

This may occur when a blood clot develops in a vein deep in the body.

Peripheral vascular disease/peripheral arterial disease

A slow and progressive circulation disorder which may involve disease in the arteries, veins, or lymphatic vessels.

Pulmonary embolism

A blood clot that develops in a blood vessel elsewhere in the body (most commonly from the leg), travels to an artery in the lung, and forms blockage of the artery.

Raynaud's disease

A disorder characterized by decreased blood flow to the fingers, and less frequently to the ears, toes, nipples, knees, or nose, usually in response to cold exposure or emotional upset.

Renal vascular disease

A variety of conditions that affect circulation of arteries and veins of the kidneys, and may cause damage to the tissues of the kidneys, kidney failure, and/or high blood pressure.

Thoracic aortic aneurysm

A bulging, weakened area in the wall of the aorta, resulting in an abnormal widening. Also known as TAA.

Varicose veins

Enlarged veins visible through the skin and may appear as blue or purple twisted, knot-like cords. Varicose veins can occur anywhere in the body, but are more commonly found on the legs.

Vascular disease

Conditions mainly caused by the hardening of the arteries due to a thickening of the artery lining from fatty deposits or plaque.

Vascular headaches and migraines

A group of headaches that includes migraines, are thought to involve abnormal function of the brain's blood vessels or vascular system.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Hospital & Clinics patient, you have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
