Vascular medicine specializes in the care of your circulatory system outside of your heart. This includes your arteries, veins and lymphatic system:
- Arteries: Blood vessels that carry oxygenated blood away from the heart to the body.
- Veins: Blood vessels that carry blood from the body back into the heart.
- Lymphatic system: A network of vessels throughout the body that drains lymph fluid from tissues to maintain fluid balance and to clear byproducts of inflammation.
