The Vascular Clinic sees patients who are referred for specialist assessment of vascular conditions. Vascular conditions include: problems with arteries and veins anywhere in the body excluding the heart.
There are generally two kinds of arterial vascular disease: occlusive and aneurysmal. In the occlusive form, blood flow is reduced because of plaque that has formed in the arteries. This causes reduced blood flow to tissues beyond the blockage. In aneurysmal disease, the wall of an artery weakens, which allows it to become larger and rupture is a possibility.
We also consult and manage venous disease, thoracic outlet syndrome and AV malformations.
Our care includes assessment, treatment and monitoring of aneurysms, vascular occlusive disease and carotid artery disease. The surgeon will recommend appropriate treatment options which may include conservative management, angioplasty and/or surgery.
Watch these videos to find out how we're building a better endograft to improve the treatment for patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms. Each video shows a different treatment option.
The Patient & Family Education Program at UHN offers valuable resources to help you understand your condition.
