One of the most responsible, complex, and essential industries in medicine is vascular surgery. It is responsible for a unique system covering the entire human body through which blood moves. The coherence and continuity of this highway are managed by a vascular surgeon, who is referred to in case of system problems. Blood, circulating in a closed space under high pressure, moves at a considerable speed.
But sometimes, for various reasons, including due to the aging of the body, there are obstacles in its way. The resulting plaques interfere with vigorous circulation, and the heart has to try with double strength to cope with its function. And this unsustainable sometimes burden for him, leads to serious health problems.

What preventive measures will help reduce the risk of disease?
For the health of arteries, the main criterion remains a healthy lifestyle, balanced nutrition, reliable and regular physical activity. The condition and functioning of the vascular system are adversely affected:

- Irrational food.
