 SVM 2018 Annual Scientific Sessions
  Meeting Type:Conference
  Description:The Society for Vascular Medicine is dedicated to improving the recognition and care of vascular diseases; fostering education and research in vascular medicine; and providing leadership to government, industry and the profession regarding issues related to vascular health. SVM includes among its membership the major investigators and opinion leaders in vascular medicine. The field of vascular medicine encompasses a broad spectrum of arterial, venous and lymphatic disorders, as well as the associated medical disorders of hypertension, hyperlipidemia, insulin resistance and diabetes mellitus. This diversity and complexity of vascular diseases requires knowledgeable practitioners of vascular medicine to provide cost-effective care.
