The Vascular Medicine and Interventional program within the Division of Cardiology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine is highly involved in the care of patients with a wide spectrum of non-coronary vascular diseases.
The clinical focus of the Vascular Medicine and Intervention section currently is the outpatient care of all types of vascular disease including occlusive and aneurysmal atherosclerotic diseases (carotid, vertebral, renal, mesenteric, aortic, and peripheral), non-atherosclerotic diseases (fibromuscular dysplasia, complications from vasculitis, and popliteal entrapment), venous diseases (thromboembolic, central venous compressive disorders such as thoracic outlet syndrome and May-Thurner syndrome, and chronic venous insufficiency) and vasospastic disorders such as Raynaud’s. Vascular Medicine and Intervention also provides inpatient consultation, both at the University of Colorado Hospital and at the Denver Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
We offer exemplary catheter-based, revascularization for a variety of acute and chronic vascular disorders at UCHealth (University of Colorado Hospital) and the Denver Veterans Affairs Medical Center. These procedures involve the use of all contemporary endovascular devices, including atherectomy, laser, and novel stent designs, with a large proportion of revascularization procedures performed for limb salvage. The University of Colorado was the 1st site in Colorado and the Mountain West that offered catheter-based renal denervation to patients with resistant hypertension as part of a multicenter, national randomized trial.
The CPC, an affiliated academic research organization, is active in the design, execution, and reporting of numerous clinical trials related to vascular disease. Dr. William Hiatt, President of the CPC, Dr. Marc Bonaca, Executive Director of the CPC, and Connie Hess, MD MHS lead the CPC efforts. Additionally, the University of Colorado is a site for the International Spontaneous Coronary Artery Disease registry and the United States Fibromuscular Dysplasia Registry. The interventional cardiology faculty at Denver VAMC ar highly involved in multiple novel device trials for peripheral revascularization as well as numerous outcome research projects.
