  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

    An Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm occurs when a section of the aorta in the abdomen weakens and bulges at the site of an aneurysm, similar to a weak spot that bulges on a worn bicycle tire. Aneurysms can develop slowly over time, often with no symptoms. If an aneurysm expands too quickly, it may leak or rupture and cause life-threatening internal bleeding.

  • Varicose Veins

    Varicose veins are enlarged veins that are visible through the skin and may appear as blue or purple twisted, knot-like cords. Varicose veins can occur anywhere in the body, but are more commonly found on the legs where they often cause a feeling of heaviness, burning or pain.
