The University of Michigan Frankel Cardiovascular Center offers both open heart surgery and minimally invasive treatments for aortic aneurysm.
University of Michigan Frankel Cardiovascular Center Aortic Disease program began in 1995 and has a long history of treating all types of aortic disease.
Aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD) is common in patients with PAD. AIOD is the blockage of the aorta, the main blood vessel in your body, or the iliac arteries. The aorta divides into the iliac arteries, which provide blood to the legs and organs in your pelvis. This blockage is typically caused by a buildup of plaque within the walls of the blood vessels.
Arterial disease, sometimes called artery disease, is a vascular disease that affects the arteries of your body, which are the vessels that carry oxygen-rich blood away from your heart to the tissues of the body. The largest artery in your body is the aorta, which stems from the heart’s left ventricle and branches out into smaller arteries throughout the body. Arterial diseases include: aortic aneurysms, peripheral arterial disease (PAD), and thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS).
University of Michigan Aortic Disease Program treats all kinds of arterial disease, including arteriosclerotic aortic disease (hardening of the arteries).
Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is a vascular disease that causes abnormal cell development in the walls of one or more arteries. This can put individuals at risk for artery blockages, stroke, artery dissection (tear in an artery) or aneurysm (artery bulge).
The Vascular Surgery department, at the University of Michigan Health System, operates on 80 percent of patients, including children, in the United States with renal artery disease more than anywhere else in the world.
The vascular surgeons at the University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center work together every day to provide our patients with the most exceptional care and treatment possible for diseases of the circulatory system.
Vertebrobasilar disease is a disease of the arterial system. It describes a variety of conditions affecting blood flow to the back of the brain via the vertebral and/or basilar arteries. Patients with vertebrobasilar disease are at increased risk for transient ischemic attack (TIA) and stroke. Vertebrobasilar disease is twice as common in men than women and typically occurs in the elderly. However, there is increased risk for earlier onset among people with risk factors relating to atherosclerotic disease including diabetes, hypertension, obesity, high cholesterol and smoking.
