A gift to the Division of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery helps support research to treat serious conditions such as PAD, aneurysms, and carotid artery disease.
UCSF vascular surgeons confirmed Virginia Madden had a blocked carotid artery that put her at great risk of having a stroke.
The Division of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery provides compassionate, state-of-the-art care for patients across the full range of vascular disorders including Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), aneurysms, carotid artery disease, hemodialysis access and venous disease. The program also treats less-common disorders including complex thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (involving the upper abdomen and chest) arterial graft infections, arterial blockage to the kidneys or intestines and thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS).
Division faculty have achieved national and international recognition as leaders in clinical innovation, surgical education, and research. The program is closely integrated with several specialized centers including the UCSF Heart & Vascular Center, a multidisciplinary team of vascular surgeons and cardiovascular specialists.
UCSF Vascular Symposium 2013
April 18th - April 20th (Thursday - Saturday)
To address the challenges facing vascular specialists in 2013, the UCSF Vascular Symposium offers expert commentary on the entire spectrum of vascular pathologies. This year the Symposium will include our annual update on the treatment of patients with peripheral occlusive lesions and both current treatment and future directions of therapy for aneurysms of the abdominal and thoracic aorta. Discussions regarding cerebrovascular disease assessment and on the dilemmas presented by venous occlusions of the upper and lower extremity will also be presented. Peter Gloviczki, M.D., President of the Society for Vascular Surgery, will give the annual Binkley Lecture. The 2013 symposium will include a review of the impending changes in healthcare and reimbursement that will affect the vascular practitioner and we have extended the meeting through Saturday afternoon to include a mini symposium on limb preservation and diabetic foot wound healing presented in coordination with our podiatry colleagues.
