Working Group on Aorta & Peripheral Vascular Diseases


Our aim is to promote an integrative understanding of the pathophysiology of "polyvascular disease" with particular focus on prevention, new diagnostic and risk prediction tools, as well as novel therapeutic modalities.

To this goal, we encourage the collaboration with other Working Groups and ESC Associations for research activities and joint meetings.

We welcome all those interested in the field and we are looking forward to their active participation!
