Diseases of the Blood Vessels

Diseases of the Blood Vessels

Blood vessels are essentially hollow tubes that carry blood to the organs and tissues throughout your body. The four basic types of blood vessels are:

    * Arteries. These blood vessels carry blood away from your heart and out to your body, delivering oxygen and nutrients. The aorta is the largest blood vessel of all.
    * Veins. These blood vessels carry deoxygenated blood back to your heart. Lacking oxygen, they have a bluish cast on your skin.
    * Capillaries. These tiny vessels connect arteries and veins.
    * Lymphatics. Fluid leaks out of capillaries to bathe cells. Lymphatics are delicate vessels that carry this fluid back into your body's central circulation.

Blood vessels have many layers and a complex mechanism of action to keep blood flowing to all of your vital organs. Despite that big responsibility, you probably don't pay much attention to your blood vessels — until something goes wrong, that is.
