Vascular leg conditions such as peripheral artery disease and vein disease affect more than 50 million Americans. NCVH is founded by Dr. Craig M. Walker, interventional cardiologist, president and founder of Cardiovascular Institute of the South.
“Peripheral disease affects more than 20 million Americans, and it is imperative for physicians to understand this complex, yet common condition, and how to treat it properly and effectively,” he said. “We must do a better job in diagnosing and treating these patients, not only to save their legs, but to reduce cardiovascular death and cost.”
NCVH provides accredited education on late-breaking advancements in cardiovascular medicine and technology to improve the diagnosis and treatment of vascular conditions, reducing morbidity, mortality, cost and amputations. Upcoming one-day regional meetings are scheduled in Atlantic City, New Jersey; Fort Lauderdale and Tampa, Florida; Lafayette, Louisiana; Chicago, Illinois; St. Louis, Missouri; and Meridian, Mississippi.
