Comprehensive Care for Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia
Blood is normally pumped from the heart at high pressure into the arteries then passes through capillaries into veins. For people who have hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), however, some of that blood goes directly from arteries to veins. This puts pressure on the veins and surrounding tissues and can cause problems such as heavy bleeding, reduced neurological function, and even life-threatening ruptures.
