A brief walkthrough
Heart and vascular disorders
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for more than 17.9 million deaths each year. CVD includes stroke and several conditions affecting the heart and blood vessels. The most common type of cardiovascular disease is coronary artery disease (CAD), a hardening or clogging of the arteries caused by a buildup of cholesterol and fatty deposits, or plaques.
Peripheral vascular disease
Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is a circulation disorder that affects the arteries that carry blood to the head, organs and limbs. It is typically caused by a buildup of plaque that causes narrowing and blockage. PVD may cause swelling and severe pain in the affected lower extremity, as well as restricted mobility due to pain or discomfort.
Structural heart disease
Structural heart disease involves defects or disorders of the heart tissue or valves. These problems may be congenital, meaning they are present at birth. Or, they may develop later in life often due to wear and tear. Heart valve disease is a type of structural disease that is more common among the aged population and is a growing problem in recent years with the increase in life expectancy.
