Vascular Disease Treatments Options | MedStar Health

Expert care to improve blood flow

Vascular diseases affect blood vessels, which carry blood to and from every cell in your body. These conditions can decrease, interrupt, or slow blood flow, which can cause serious, even life-threatening, conditions without proper treatment, including heart attacks and strokes.

Our Vascular and Endovascular Program is the largest and most experienced center in the area. Our vascular lab is accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories, which ensures the highest quality of patient care.

What vascular disease treatments are available?

Some of the many treatments we offer include:


Leg and foot ulcers 

Open sores that are long-lasting, keep returning, and are resistant to treatment.

Leg aneurysms 

A leg aneurysm is a bulge in a blood vessel that can cause blood clots or reduced blood flow.

Peripheral artery disease (PAD)

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) occurs when blood flow to the arms and legs is reduced due to narrowed or blocked arteries.

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES)

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome is the compression of the artery that supplies blood to your lower leg. This often causes leg pain or cramping during exercise.

Raynaud’s disease

Raynaud’s disease causes coldness, numbness, and color changes of the skin, usually in the fingers and toes.

Raynaud’s phenomenon 

Raynaud’s phenomenon is a symptom of other medical conditions and causes coldness, numbness and color changes of the skin, usually in the fingers and toes.

Vascular disease

Vascular disease encompasses all conditions that affect the circulation of blood through your veins and arteries.

Vascular infections and complications

Vascular infections occur when arteries or veins are contaminated with bacteria, fungi, or viruses. The main way this happens is through vascular surgery.

Vascular malformations

Vascular malformation is a term used to describe the abnormal formation or development of blood vessels.


Vasculitis is the inflammation of blood vessels that can cause aneurysms and organ damage.

Vasospastic disorders

Vasospastic disorders are spasms in your arteries that decrease blood supply to your hands and feet. These spasms can cause coldness and skin discoloration.

Visceral artery aneurysm

A visceral artery aneurysm is a bulge in the wall of an artery that brings blood to organs in the abdomen.


Angiogram (Angiography)

An angiogram is a special X-ray taken as a special dye is injected through a thin, flexible tube called a catheter to detect blockages or aneurysms in blood vessels.

Arterial duplex ultrasound for arms and legs

Arterial duplex ultrasound uses Doppler and traditional ultrasound to assess blood flow in the arteries of your arms and legs.

Computerized tomography (CT) scan

The cardiac computed tomography scan, or cardiac CT, uses X-rays to create three-dimensional images of your heart and blood vessels.

Pulse volume recording

Pulse volume recording tests are used to evaluate blood flow through the arteries in your arms or legs.
