The Vascular System

The vascular system is the body's network of blood vessels. It includes the arteries, veins and capillaries that carry blood to and from the heart. Vascular system problems are common and can be serious. Arteries can become thick and stiff — a problem called arteriosclerosis. Blood clots can clog vessels and block blood flow to the heart or brain. Weakened blood vessels can burst, causing bleeding inside the body.

Risk Factors for Vascular Disease

You are more likely to have vascular disease as you get older. Other factors that make vascular disease more likely include:

  • Any condition that affects the heart and blood vessels, such as diabetes or high cholesterol
  • Family history of vascular or heart diseases
  • Illness or injury
  • Long periods of sitting or standing still
  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy
  • Smoking

Speak with your primary care physician if you are having pain and/or swelling in your legs or feet. Your primary care physician can refer you for a consultation with a vascular surgeon.

You can avoid or reduce vascular disease by losing weight, eating healthy foods, being active and not smoking. Other treatments include medicines and surgery.

Symptoms of Vascular Disease

The signs and symptoms of vascular disease include:

  • Burning or itching sensations, aching pain after standing
  • Pain, aches, cramps in legs, buttocks or feet during exercise or at rest
  • Protruding or swelling of varicose veins
  • Temporary loss of vision or sudden numbness/weakness in legs or arms (call 911)
  • Wounds that don't heal

Vascular system problems are common, but they can be serious. If you have concerns or experience any symptoms listed above, speak with your primary care physician.
