Indiana Atherosclerosis Lawyers

Atherosclerosis is a medical condition that can cause the aorta or other branches of the heart to become weak or even rupture. The disease is serious and affects the arteries, which are responsible for carrying blood containing oxygen to the heart and other body parts. Atherosclerosis causes plaque to build up in those arteries, which in turn prevents blood rich in oxygen from reaching the heart and other organs. Atherosclerosis can cause heart attacks and strokes, which can be deadly.

Not only is atherosclerosis life threatening, but the disease is often accompanied by expensive medical bills that can cause a financial burden. Our Indiana attorneys at Hankey Marks & Crider believe you should focus on your recovery rather than expenses, and are dedicated to helping those suffering from atherosclerosis by helping them apply for Social Security Disability benefits.

Diseases Caused by Atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis can lead to other cardiovascular diseases, and issues that affect other important organs such as the brain and kidneys. Any artery can be affected by atherosclerosis, so limbs and the pelvis are commonly affected. Some common medical issues resulting from atherosclerosis include:

  • Coronary Heart Disease
  • Carotid Artery Disease
  • Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Cerebrovascular Disease
  • Peripheral Artery Disease

If you suffer from atherosclerosis or a disease caused by atherosclerosis and are struggling financially, contact an attorney.

Treatment of Atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis can often be controlled by healthy lifestyle changes, including diet, exercise, and quitting drinking or smoking. Unfortunately, those suffering from Atherosclerosis may need more than lifestyle changes. Some common forms of Atherosclerosis treatments include:

  • Stress management like therapy
  • Medications that lower cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, blood pressure, etc.
  • Coronary angioplasty or other procedures that open blocked arteries
  • Bypass surgery
  • Carotid endarterectomy, which reduces plaque buildup in neck arteries

If you must undergo one of the above treatment methods or another similar type of surgery or procedure, you should consider speaking with an attorney about your financial options.
