ACS and SVS Release Standards for Outpatient Vascular Care

The American College of Surgeons (ACS), with the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS), has released new standards for outpatient vascular centers to help them provide optimal care and treatment of patients receiving vascular surgical and procedural care. 

These new standards are part of the Vascular Verification Program (Vascular-VP). The standards provide the requirements necessary for outpatient vascular centers to achieve and maintain verification for their vascular programs. 


Complex Peripheral Vascular Interventions (CPVI) Skills Course


The largest clinical area for vascular surgeons in the United States is the treatment of patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD); which means, being well-versed in the best way to treat PAD is vital. Designed by vascular surgeons for vascular surgeons, the CPVI Skills Course will support attendees to become familiar with the latest innovations and techniques in treating patients with PAD.
