The most important part of human body and anatomy is the wide network of blood vessels (arteries and veins) that spreads throughout the body. Any problem or disease that affects the blood vessels is treated under the category of vascular diseases. In the terminology of medical science, all of the diseases and problems associated with blood vessels are known as vascular diseases which are a part or sub branch of cardiovascular diseases. The person qualified to treat these symptoms and issues is known as a cardiologist.
Vascular diseases can occur or present themselves anywhere in the body. Since the blood vessels are responsible for circulating blood throughout the body, an abnormal condition of the vessels has a probability of occurring anywhere (within or outside the heart). If left untreated, the issues of blood vessels (vascular diseases) can result in sever disability and even death.

· What are the different types of vascular diseases?
There are a number of vascular diseases that exist and can inflict anyone at any time. Most vascular diseases are a result of some other treatment that a patient going through and need immediate and urgent assistance and medical care. A vein doctor can help with the treatment of vascular diseases through medication, laser procedures or vascular surgery. The network of blood vessels runs throughout the body and the diseases related to the vascular system can occur in any body part as well. For example:
1) Coronary artery disease: The coronary arteries deliver blood to and from the heart. The disease related to these arteries is often due to the buildup of fat and cholesterol in the arteries and results in angina pain and heart attack. Coronary artery disease treatment depends on the type and level of disease. In that case, heart attack treatment and in more severe cases heart failure treatment should be provided on immediate basis. The treatment often includes vascular surgery and extensive procedures such as angioplasty and bypass surgery (in more severe cases).
2) Varicose Veins: Varicose veins are another vascular disease (related to the blood vessels). They usually and most typically occur just under the skin of the leg and appear as enlarged, swelled and twisted veins. The pain is often referred to as a deep ache. There can be a number of reasons as to why varicose veins occur such as obesity, genetics, family history and lack of exercise. Varicose Vein treatment includes sclerotherapy, laser treatment and endoscopic vein surgery. Varicose vein surgery is a very common treatment used to treat this condition.
3) Peripheral artery disease: Peripheral arteries are those serving the legs, stomach, arms and head. The usual problem arises when these veins shrink reducing the blood flow. Peripheral artery disease (PAD) treatment is often angioplasty, bypass surgery and thrombolytic therapy. The first and foremost approach is always to perform a minimally invasive surgery.
4) Carotid artery surgery: This surgery is performed to restore blood flow to the brain and face. Plaque and other fat deposits can stop the blood flow.
5) DVT: Deep vein thrombosis occurs in the lower parts of the body usually in the lower leg and thigh. If it breaks loose and enters the lungs, it can prove to be fatal.
