Biannual Meeting Information
Participating SVS VQI Centers


We are a group of vascular specialists in Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana who have committed to collecting, sharing, and analyzing data related to vascular interventions and outcomes in order to continue to provide the best vascular care possible to our patients.

Our goal is to improve outcomes for our patients and to explore the factors that predict the best outcomes. We take advantage of the rapidly accumulating data that comes from collaboration with other interested groups both regionally and nationally and together implement changes and improvements in the care we deliver to provide the most up to date and best care possible to our patients.
