Assess Your Risk for a Stroke, Aneurysm or Peripheral Arterial Disease at our Community Vascular Screening -- A 15 minute non-invasive screening.
Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and the leading cause of disability. Unfortunately, many strokes and aneurysms occur without any warning signs. Women account for 61% of stroke deaths. Aneurysms rarely pose any symptoms. However, the mortality rate for ruptured aneurysms is 90 to 95%.
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is any form of atherosclerosis, or plaque build-up, that occurs anywhere outside the heart. An estimated 40% of people with coronary artery disease also have peripheral vascular disease.
The good news is if these risks can be identified, they can be treated. If you have two or more of the following risk factors you should consider a Community Vascular Screening:
