Vascular disease is any condition that affects your circulatory system, which is the system of blood vessels that carry blood throughout our bodies. The circulatory system is an extremely important system that keeps us alive.

Problems can develop in our blood vessels, like plaque that creates blockages in the vessels or weakened vessel walls that can rupture and cause blood to leak from our circulatory system.
