How is it treated?
If you have small vessel disease, your doctor may prescribe medicine to help control your symptoms or keep your arteries from narrowing. Because the arteries are so small, surgery is not an option. Your doctor will talk to you about which medicine is best for you. Your doctor will also want to schedule regular check-ups with you to monitor how you are doing.
