Mission Statement

The PVD Council seeks to integrate the academic and clinical missions of all interdisciplinary vascular health professionals in order to expand professional and public vascular education; to advance the basic science and clinical research and evidence based practice; and to thereby improve clinical outcomes of individuals with PVD.

PVD FIT Workshop

Sponsored by the Council on Peripheral Vascular Disease, this go-to workshop continues to provide unparalleled educational and mentoring opportunities for the successful professional development of vascular and cardiovascular post-graduate trainees and junior faculty. Leading experts offer state-of-the-art programming on vascular disease management as well as perspectives on conducting clinical trials and academic research.  Visit the PVD FIT Workshop Programming page to learn more.

The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association quality improvement programs serve to empower healthcare facilities and their professionals provide quality health care. Together, one patient at a time, we can build healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke. To learn more, visit heart.org/myhealthcare.

BRIDGE Study

BRIDGE LogoWhat is the BRIDGE Study?
Overall, there is uncertainty about the benefit or harm of bridging anticoagulation. This research study will determine the possible benefits and harms of bridging anticoagulation and will inform doctors about the best way to care for patients like you in the future. The BRIDGE study aims to provide definitive evidence about the pros and cons of bridging and will establish a standard-of-care.

Some doctors switch patients from warfarin to heparin around the time of surgeries and procedures (“bridging anticoagulation”), while others simply stop the warfarin. There has never been a controlled study to determine which of these strategies is the best one to prevent arterial thrombotic events (ATEs) or clotting.

More details on the BRIDGE Study on the Professional Online Network.

Contact the investigators if you have potentially eligible patients - https://bridge.dcri.duke.edu/.

Funding Source: National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI): NCT00786474
