Your vascular system is made up of vessels that carry your blood throughout your body. Arteries carry oxygen-rich blood away from your heart. Veins carry oxygen-poor blood back to your heart. Your blood leaves the left side of the heart and is pumped out to the rest of your body.
If you are a member of the media looking to set up an interview with a vascular surgeon, please call 312-334-2317, or send us an email.
Most Americans are familiar with heart disease and with the consequences of blockages in the vessels that carry blood to and from the heart. But few people realize that blockages caused by a buildup of plaque and cholesterol affect more than coronary arteries. Arteries throughout the body carry oxygen-rich blood away from the heart, so blockages can occur in all arteries with serious effects.
Why is vascular health newsworthy?

About the 2018 Vascular Annual Meeting June 20-23, Boston, Mass.
The United States Congress and federal regulatory agencies, such as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, make many critical decisions on issues that have an impact on vascular surgeons and their patients. The Society for Vascular Society® (SVS) Government Relations Committee monitors these issues and oversees SVS lobbying efforts to ensure the interests of the vascular surgery specialty are represented in critical legislative and regulatory decisions.
We are a not-for-profit professional medical society, composed primarily of vascular surgeons, that seeks to advance excellence and innovation in vascular health through education, advocacy, research, and public awareness.
