Early Detection is Vital

In most cases, with early detection, vascular disease can be treated effectively. Strokes due to carotid disease can be prevented if diagnosed early and medical treatment is undertaken. There are several simple screening tests that detect problems, all of which are non-invasive and painless. St. Luke's offers two screening programs:

Who Should be Screened for Vascular Disease?

Anyone over the age of 60, plus people with these risk factors:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Smoking
  • High blood cholesterol
  • Family history of atherosclerotic problems and circulatory problems

Screening can determine whether different forms of disease are present:

  • PAD
  • Aortic aneurysms
  • Cerebrovascular disease
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (blood clots in the veins that can travel to the lungs)
  • Renal artery disease (circulatory disorders of the kidney)
  • Chronic venous diseases (e.g., varicose veins)
