SVS Research Council Releases Summary of NHLBI Strategic Vision, Completed with SVS Input
The Society for Vascular Surgery offers several different types of clinical practice documents and tools to assist our members and the healthcare industry.
Here's a look back at the 2016 SVS Clinical Documents Highlights:
Research progress in vascular biology is critical, as vascular disease continues to affect much of the world’s population and continues to be the leading cause of morbidity and mortality.
The PRESERVE Trial (Predicting the Safety and Effectiveness of Inferior Vena Cava Filters), is the first large-scale, multi-specialty, prospective clinical study to evaluate the use of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters and related follow-up treatment in the United States.
The Interactive Practice Guidelines App now has the 2016 Diabetic Foot guidelines.
The Society for Vascular Surgery Interactive Practice Guidelines App (SVS iPG) offers clinicians, trainees, and third-party payers:
Reporting standards are intended to provide uniformity of definitions and classifications for comparative purposes. They are instructive on how to report information from clinical studies in a consistent manner to make it easy for the reader to compare results. The literature is reviewed for evidence supported items before developing definitions, classifications, and scorings. In the absence of such evidence, a writing group comprised of experts on the topic may develop through consensus definitions, classifications, and scorings.
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.
