The Cardiovascular Innovations Foundation is organized and operated exclusively for charitable, scientific, and educational purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The mission of the Foundation is to address unmet needs in cardiovascular care through the study, design, and development of innovative health care solutions and education of health care providers and the larger public.
Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death globally, accounting for nearly 17.5 million deaths each year. Cardiovascular disease may strike those in their prime years and, due to population aging, also afflict elderly people who are otherwise living healthy lives. Improvements in cardiovascular therapy have markedly reduced procedural risk, and thereby enabled the treatment of a broad range of patients, more than ever before in the history of medicine. Nonetheless, significant disparities in the delivery of cardiovascular care continue to exist, leading to large unmet clinical needs for many patients worldwide. Innovation in the delivery of cardiovascular care, as well as education of the public at-large, is essential for optimizing the management of these patients.
Cardiovascular Innovations annual meeting provides an educational forum for health care practitioners to learn the newest innovation in the delivery of cardiovascular care. Through educational tracks and lectures designed to identify the benefits of endovascular, surgical, and medical therapy, attendees are able select appropriate patients for vascular revascularization and utilize more advanced techniques to treat complex disease such as carotid stenosis, acute DVT, pulmonary embolism, PAD, and CLI.
