Every year, more than 795,000 people in the United States have a stroke and 805,000 have a heart attack
Early detection is the easiest way to avoid heart attack, stroke and other cardiovascular disease. Get peace of mind with a screening from a highly-trained, board-certified vascular surgeon conveniently located in the Cedar Rapids MedQuarter. Screenings are easy, absolutely painless and non-invasive.
Preventative Health Screenings Offered By PCI Vascular Surgery
Carotid Artery Disease: Your carotid artery delivers blood to your brain. When build up of fatty plaque (called atherosclerosis) diminishes or blocks the blood flow to your brain, you will have a stroke. A simple ultrasound can detect atherosclerosis in its earliest stages. Our vascular surgeons can discuss life saving treatment options for atherosclerosis with you, if it is detected.
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD): Peripheral Arterial Disease refers to the development of plaque and the narrowing and/or blockage of the arteries affects blood flow to the legs and lower extremities. This condition can make it difficult for patients to walk and can lead to sores and wounds that may not heal properly. Left untreated, this can progress to limb loss, coronary artery disease, heart attack or stroke. An Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) test, using blood pressure cuffs on the arms and legs, can detect PAD.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm is an enlargement or bulge in the aorta within your abdomen. Aortic aneurysms can be at risk of rupture or bursting. The aorta is the largest blood vessel that delivers blood pumped from the heart and an abdominal aortic aneurysm is life-threatening and often fatal if it bursts. An ultrasound can detect an enlargement or aneurysm, potentially saving your life!
All screenings are $30 each or $80 for all three.
