Vascular medicine is a rapidly advancing discipline that is concerned with the study of the the blood vessels and their diseases. It encompasses the evaluation and treatment of the following disease states:

  1. Arterial disease, such as carotid, renal, mesenteric and other peripheral (limb) arterial abnormalities, including acute and chronic syndromes as well as long-term complications.
  2. Diseases of the veins, such as varicose veins, thrombophlebitis, venous thromboembolic disease (DVT and PE) and its long-term sequelae.
  3. Diseases of the lymphatics, such as lymphedema.
  4. Associated medical disorders, such as hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, diabetes.
  5. Nonatherosclerotic vascular disease, such as vasculitidis, thromboangiitis obliterans (Buerger's disease), fibromuscular dysplasia, pernio, atheromatous embolization, HIV and other vasculopathies.
  6. The appropriate use of noninvasive and invasive assessment and management of these problems
