5 Common Vascular Disorders

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, Fellowship in Vascular Surgery, Ted Rogers Fellowship
Vascular Surgeon, Delhi
5 Common Vascular Disorders

Vascular disorders are disorders of the vessels in your body that carry either blood or waste products. The vascular system consists of the arteries (that carry blood away from the heart), veins (that carry blood to the heart) and lymph vessels (that carry waste products to be excreted from the body). The various diseases of the vascular or circulatory system are:

  1. Peripheral Artery Disease: Peripheral arteries carry blood to the various organs and tissues in the body. Accumulation of cholesterol and fat in the vessels narrow the pathway for the blood to flow. This can impair blood flow to the tissues in the body and cause complications. Various medications used to lower cholesterol and blood pressure can also be used for peripheral artery disease.
  2. Buerger's Disease: This disease causes obstructions in the veins and arteries in the legs. This can hamper blood supply in the toes and the feet. It causes pain and may require amputation in severe cases. Treatments for this disease include smoking cessation and medications to dilute blood vessels.
  3. Aneurysm: An aneurysm is swelling in the blood vessel walls; it usually occurs in the aorta. The artery walls become fragile and are placed under a lot of stress; this may lead to a sudden rupture of the aortic vessels. This disorder is usually treated by surgical procedures.
  4. Peripheral Venous Disease: Peripheral venous disease is characterized by damage to the valves that allows blood to flow in a single direction. Damaged valves can cause blood to flow backwards and therefore, accumulate. Treatments for this disorder are incorporating certain lifestyle habits such as quitting smoking and alcohol.
  5. Blood clots in the veins: Blood clots may occur in the veins present inside the muscles of the thighs and lower legs which lead to deep vein thrombosis. You may be prescribed anti-coagulants, also known as blood thinners, to treat this disorder.

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, 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 pipes flatten
  3. Occlusive, which occur when pipes are blocked
  4. Tumors (growths) or malformations (deformed, tangled pipes), 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 of vascular disorders can include:

  1. Pain
  2. Abnormal color changes in the fingertips
  3. Ulcers or wounds that do not heal
  4. Hand problems when in cold temperatures or locations
  5. Numbness or tingling of the fingertips
  6. Swelling
  7. Cool or cold fingers and/or hands 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

I have fatty liver problem as I'm over weight which medicine should I take my heart beat is high and pain in chest.
Being overweight and having a high heart beat with chest pain puts you in a higher risk for heart diseases. Having a pain in your chest can be scary. It does not always mean that you are having a heart attack. There can be many other causes, including Other heart problems, such as angina Panic attacks Digestive problems, such as heartburn or esophagus disorders Sore muscles Lung diseases, such as pneumonia, pleurisy, or pulmonary embolism Costochondritis - an inflammation of joints in your chest Some of these problems can be serious. Get immediate medical care if you have chest pain that does not go away, crushing pain or pressure in the chest, or chest pain along with nausea, sweating, dizziness or shortness of breath. Treatment depends on the cause of the pain. To rule out cardiac issues. Get a ECG and 2D echocardiography done. If they are normal then get a TMT done.

In this week I feel pain in my chest so can you please tell me why does it occur every time?
Young person's pain chest may not be heart, see whether you are smoker if so stop it for good. Indigestion, anxiety stress may cause pain. However to clear doubts get one ecg.

I am having pain in my left underarm area towards heart and this pain is going towards left shoulder and left neck area. I had various tests like ECG, 2D echo, angiography and all suspects regarding any heart problem were denied and doctor said it is more related to physio, as I am an IT professional being seated all the time on chair and body movement is less. Could you please assist me with some exercises for left underarm and shoulder pain? Thank you!

Panic Attack Not a Heart Attack!

Cardiologist, Delhi
Panic Attack Not a Heart Attack!

A panic attack is a sudden surge of overwhelming anxiety and fear. Your heart pounds and you can’t breathe. You may even feel like you’re dying or going crazy. Left untreated, panic attacks can lead to panic disorder and other problems. They may even cause you to withdraw from normal activities. But panic attacks can be cured and the sooner you seek help, the better. With treatment, you can reduce or eliminate the symptoms of panic and regain control of your life.

Signs and symptoms of a panic attack-

Panic attacks often strike when you’re away from home, but they can happen anywhere and at any time. You may have one while you’re in a store shopping, walking down the street, driving in your car, or sitting on the couch at home.

The signs and symptoms of a panic attack develop abruptly and usually reach their peak within 10 minutes. Most panic attacks end within 20 to 30 minutes, and they rarely last more than an hour.

A full-blown panic attack includes a combination of the following signs and symptoms:


    
    
    
 
 
 Shortness of breath or hyperventilation
 
 
 
 
 Heart palpitations or racing heart
 
 
 
 
 Chest pain or discomfort
 
 
 
 
 Trembling or shaking
 
 
 
 
 Choking feeling
 
 
 
 
 Feeling unreal or detached from your surroundings
 
 
 
 
 Sweating
 
 
 
 
 Nausea or upset stomach
 
 
 
 
 Feeling dizzy, light-headed, or faint
 
 
 
 
 Numbness or tingling sensations
 
 
 
 
 Hot or cold flashes
 
 
 
 
 Fear of dying, losing control, or going crazy
 
 
    


Thank you!

Hello. She has to take her bpmedicines regularly. If it is high at the time of check up, give one more tablet. Avoid exertion. Less salt in diet. If bp still remains high, to consult a physician. Sometimes there is need of hospitalisation to lower bp with injectable medicines and to avoid further complications associated with it.

Hi. Heart related chest pain is very rare in your age group. And as you said, if you are feeling that your heart beats are irregular, you should do a ecg. It will tell us weather it is really related to heart or it is just sensations. Take care.

Diet is important part of health management. Apart from other components of healthy lifestyle, healthy diet is a must for optimal health. Your diet should be rich in fruits and vegetables, protein, complex carbohydrates but low in oil and salt in general. Avoid sweet, colas, snacks and fried items. Drink adequate water. Form a habit of counting your calories, because at the end of the day that determines what you should eat and what you should not.
