What relationship exists between cardiovascular diseases and the circulatory system? Is it just clogging of the arteries?

In brief: No

High blood pressure can also cause the heart to work harder and result in hypertrophy (ballooning) of the heart muscle.
High blood pressure is not always the result of clogging of the arteries. It can also be caused by too much fluid volume due to salt intake and by stress.

In brief: CV diseases

Diseases of the heart & the vascular system (arteries, veins, capillaries) involve the cvs.
Circulatory system is the group of vessels eminating from the heart to the rest of the body (arteries) and the vessels bringing the blood back to the heart (veins).
