Vascular Medicine Consult Registry

The Society for Vascular Surgery Patient Safety Organization® (SVS PSO) and the Society for Vascular Medicine (SVM), in collaboration with the American Heart Association® (AHA), are pleased to offer the SVS Vascular Quality Initiative’s Vascular Medicine Consult (VMC) Registry.

This Registry targets the management of NEW Outpatient Consults who are being treated medically for:

  • Atherosclerotic carotid artery occlusive disease
  • Abdominal Aortic aneurysm
  • Peripheral lower extremity arterial disease due to atherosclerosis or true aneurysm

The Vascular Medicine Consult Registry provides a unique opportunity to look at the natural history of a disease and what factors impact the progression. The emphasis of this Registry will be medication details and dosages, risk factor and lifestyle modifications such as exercise and diet, and non-operative treatments and counseling i. The value of this Registry centers on the comparative effectiveness of surgery vs. medically managing these vascular diseases.
