Vascular-Disorders

Vascular disease is any abnormal condition of the blood vessels (arteries and veins). The body uses blood vessels to circulate blood through itself. Problems along this vast network can cause severe disability and death.

CAUSES

People with diseases such diabetes, high blood pressure, or kidney failure can be more likely to have vessel problems. Working with vibrating tools, being in cold temperatures, family history of vascular disease, being overweight, Lack of exercise and smoking can worsen vascular problems.

Causes of vascular disorders usually fit into one of 5 groups:

  1. Traumatic, which occur after injury
  2. Compressive, which occur when the blood vessels flatten
  3. Occlusive, which occur when blood vessels are blocked
  4. Tumors (growths) or malformations (deformed, tangled blood vessels), which may or may not be present at birth
  5. Vessel spasms, which occur when abnormal control of vessels causes them to narrow

SYMPTOMS

Symptoms vary depending on the size and location of the affected blood vessels and the degree of damage caused to the affected organs. For example, the following may occur:

  • Skin: A rash of bluish purple spots (hemorrhages) or blotches (purpura), hives, small bumps (nodules), tiny spots (petechiae), mottled discoloration caused by dilated surface blood vessels (livedo reticularis), or sores (ulcers) on the lower legs
