Be sure to view the video and call DB2 Regeneration at 636 265-2822 or St. Louis Vascular Surgical Specialists directly at 314 755-1084 to schedule a screening.

The Silent Threat: Understanding Vascular Health

Cardiovascular diseases often manifest silently, making early detection a key component of effective prevention. Vascular screenings provide a comprehensive assessment of the health of critical arteries, offering insights into potential issues before symptoms arise.

Three Most Important Vascular Screenings

Carotid Arteries: Gateway to Stroke Prevention

Importance of Carotid Ultrasound Three Most Important Vascular Screenings

Carotid ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging technique that assesses the blood flow in the carotid arteries. Studies have shown its effectiveness in detecting plaque buildup, a significant precursor to stroke.

Aortic Screenings: Safeguarding Against Aneurysms

Role of Aortic Ultrasound

Aortic ultrasound aids in the detection of aneurysms, a potentially life-threatening condition. Research emphasizes the importance of regular aortic screenings, especially for individuals with risk factors like hypertension and smoking.

Peripheral Arteries: The Lifeline of Limb Health

Ankle Brachial Indexing: A Window to Peripheral Artery Health

Ankle brachial indexing is a simple yet powerful diagnostic tool for assessing peripheral artery health. Studies highlight its significance in identifying peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and the associated risk of limb complications.

The Impact of Early Detection

Preventing Cardiovascular Events

Early detection through vascular screenings enables timely interventions, reducing the risk of major cardiovascular events. Research demonstrates a significant decrease in stroke incidence among individuals who underwent regular vascular screenings.

Vascular screenings play a pivotal role in maintaining cardiovascular health. By utilizing advanced technologies like ultrasound and ankle brachial indexing, individuals can proactively identify potential issues and take steps to mitigate risks. These screenings bundled together are seldom covered by insurance but DB2 Regeneration has teamed up with St. Louis Vascular Surgical Specialists to make early detection and peace of mind affordable for our patients. Investing in vascular screenings is an investment in a healthier, longer life.
