Vascular disease is the major cause of death in the UK accounting for 40% of all deaths. The risk increases with age, with 17,500 people dying each year between 55-64 years old. By detecting disease early, changes in lifestyle and possibly lipid lowering drugs can slow progression and prolong life.
