The Vascular Center at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, is a comprehensive Center specializing in circulatory system disorders. Our vascular surgeons offer a variety of advanced treatment options to correct impaired blood flow to the kidneys and the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
Proper blood flow to the kidneys and GI tract is critical to the function of the organs. In some cases, blood flow can be impaired, diminishing the effectiveness of the organs and their intended functions.

In the kidneys, this impaired blood flow may be referred to as renal artery stenosis. In the GI tract, it is known as intestinal ischemia.
Some cases of impaired blood flow to the kidneys and GI tract can be treated with medications aimed at treating the underlying causes of impaired blood flow. In more severe cases, surgery may be required. This may include the use of angioplasty and stenting.
