Arterial Treatment

The arteries are the tubes which carry blood out from the heart to all the organs and tissues of the body. Dr Ward-Harvey treats all manner of arterial diseases, but these can largely be broken down into categories of aneurysms (weaknesses of the walls of the arteries, leading to "ballooning" out of the walls, and may lead to rupture), and occlusive disease (causing inadequate blood circulation to the tissues "downstream" of the blockage, which may lead to pain or even tissue death).

Aneurysms

  • Aortic aneurysms (abdominal or thoracic)
  • Popliteal aneurysms
  • Other sites

Occlusive Disease ("blocked arteries")

  • Carotid artery stenosis
  • Upper limb occlusive disease
  • Peripheral arterial (Lower Limb) disease
  • Abdominal (i.e. renal or mesenteric) disease
