At Renown Institute for Heart and Vascular Health, our focus is not just on treating vascular disease with surgery and other advanced interventions, but also on preventing future vascular problems.
The key to prevention is robust and continual medical management, with lifestyle modification and medication as needed.
Medical management may include blood thinning medications, diet and exercise modification, smoking cessation or medications to lower blood pressure, cholesterol or blood sugar. Additionally, it is important to keep track of whether or not vascular disease is progressing, often using advanced imaging techniques like CT scans and vascular ultrasound.
Our multi-disciplinary approach allows us to develop and implement personalized long-term vascular surveillance and medical management strategies for patients with established vascular disease.
Programs designed to lower hard-to-control blood pressure and treat families with a history of high cholesterol.
Ongoing monitoring programs aimed to prevent further complications in patients with vascular disease.
