Peripheral Vascular Diseases Department:
Since 2014, our hospital planned to found a fully equipped and highly specialized ward with a focus on peripheral vascular diseases, which led to the dedication of outpatient clinics, noninvasive laboratories, and separate cath-lab rooms alongside trained interventionists to endovascular procedures.
Our department is widely acknowledged as a trailblazing peripheral endovascular treatment center in the country on the strength of the excellent services it provides to a growing number of referral patients from cardiovascular clinics and other hospitals.
Aortoiliac and femoropopliteal occlusive diseases, critical limb ischemia, aortic aneurysmal disorders, acute and chronic venous obstruction, and even varicose veins are among the most notable fields currently managed in our center. As a pioneering center in Iran, our short-term program is to train highly-qualified endovascular fellows.
