Pericardial and Peripheral Vascular diseases

Pericardial disease, or Pericarditis is inflammation of any of the layers of the Pericardium. The pericardium is a thin tissue sac that surrounds the heart and consists of Visceral pericardium, middle fluid layer and Parietal pericardium. Common causes of Pericardial Diseases are Infections, Heart surgery, Heart attack, Trauma, Tumors, Cancer, Radiation, Autoimmune diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus or scleroderma). Chest pain, Low-fever and increased heart rate are the symptoms of Pericarditis.

Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) develops as plaque builds up on the inside of arteries. This buildup restricts the flow of blood to the stomach, arms, head and particularly in the legs causing pain and numbness when walking or climbing stairs. Painful cramping in calves, thighs or hips after certain physical activities like walking or climbing stairs is common. Peripheral vascular disease also be called Peripheral Artery Disease,  increases the risk for infection, tissue death (gangrene), heart attack, stroke and amputation. Different types of Pericardial and Peripheral Vascular diseases are:

  • Atherosclerosis
  • Doppler and Ultrasound (Duplex) Imaging
  • Computed Tomographic Angiography (CT)
  • Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA)
  • Angiography
