Vascular Medicine focuses on the diagnosis and management of vascular (i.e. arterial, venous, lymphatic) disorders. A large proportion of patients with vascular disease have venous or arterial thrombosis and/or peripheral arterial disease. However, less common disorders must be considered in the workup of patients with leg swelling, leg discomfort, non-healing ulcers, blue digits, arterial dissections and aneurysms.
