Rare Multisystemic Vascular Diseases refer to a group of disorders that affect various types and sizes of blood vessels. These include aortic vessels, medium-sized arteries, small arteries, veins, capillaries, and lymphatic vessels. These diseases have multisystemic consequences and external signs that demand a multidisciplinary approach to patient care.
The network of healthcare professionals and centers of expertise involved in this approach is vast and diverse. It includes specialists such as clinical geneticists, genetic counselors, cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, physiotherapists, cardiovascular, neurological and interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons, ophthalmologists, obstetricians, gynecologists, pulmonologists, hematologists, obstetric anesthetists, psychologists, pulmonary function technicians, dieticians, blood transfusion technicians, gastroenterologists, nurses, and pharmacists. By adopting a multidisciplinary approach to patient care, this network aims to provide patients with the highest possible quality of care and treatment.
The exchange of medical knowledge and sharing clinical experiences in patient case discussions form a crucial part of the network’s operations to improve the diagnosis and management of Rare Multisystemic Vascular Diseases.
