 Clinical Research Priorities

The SVS Clinical Research Priorities are:

  1. Further investigate theĀ optimal management of asymptomatic carotid stenosis

  2. Compare effectiveness of medical versus invasive therapy (open or endovascular) for claudication

  3. Compare effectiveness of initial open versus endovascular infra-inguinal revascularization for critical limb ischemia

  4. Develop and compare effectiveness of clinical strategies to reduce cardiovascular and other perioperative complications (e.g. wound) following vascular intervention

  5. Determine the effectiveness of strategies to enhance arteriovenous fistula maturation and durability

  6. Develop best practices for management of chronic venous ulcer

  7. Further investigate theĀ optimal adjunctive medical therapy to enhance the success of lower extremity intervention

  8. Identify and evaluate medical therapy to prevent abdominal aortic aneurysm growth

  9. Evaluate ultrasound versus computed tomography angiography surveillance post- endovascular aneurysm repair
