Vascular diseases are conditions that affect the blood vessels or circulatory system. Your blood vessels are the arteries and veins that pump blood throughout your body. Heart and vascular, or cardiovascular, diseases include conditions such as:
Arrhythmias: Abnormal heart rhythms cased by problems in the electrical system of the heart
Coronary artery disease: Plaque buildup that causes artery walls to narrow over time, making it harder for blood to flow
