Aortic Disease Screening
Call for appointment:410-328-4771 410-328-4771
We emphasize preventive care and early detection, as well as managing patients with aortic conditions. If we detect the disease early, most aortic conditions are treatable.
Screening and preventive measures include:
- Blood pressure screenings: Hypertension is one of the leading causes of aortic conditions. Get regular blood pressure screenings at your doctor's office and use a digital blood pressure cuff at home.
- Lifestyle changes: If we diagnose high blood pressure and aortic disease, we may recommend lifestyle changes. These changes may include low-sodium diets, lower levels of physical exertion and stress reduction. Learn more about high blood pressure.
- Pay attention to symptoms: Tell your doctor if you have any symptoms like chest pain, weakness, numbness or fainting.
- Family history: Disclose family medical history to identify any possible genetic conditions.
