Vascular Board

The Vascular Board was established in 2006 to conduct systematic and crosssectional examinations for systemic vascular diseases, which are increasing as society ages and our lifestyles change.

Medical services

Vascular examinations are performed by the Department of Clinical Laboratory and the Radiological Center with the participation of departments and divisions engaged in vascular assessment (Vascular Surgery, Cardiovascular Medicine, Nephrology and Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolic Diseases, Allergy and Rheumatology, Neurology, Plastic Surgery, Cardiovascular Surgery, Neurosurgery, Rehabilitation Medicine, Department of Clinical Laboratory, Imaging Center, and Palliative care team, etc.). The Vascular Board (VB) Steering Committee is responsible for organization and management. The Board streamlines and educates the guideline for antithrombotic therapy and prevention of thrombosis in our hospital.

Treatment policy

  • Improvement of the quality of diagnosis, treatment and management of systemic vascular diseases by noninvasive examinations
  • Interdisciplinary assessment of systemic vascular diseases in conferences transcending departmental boundaries
  • Interdisciplinary treatment for cancer-treatment-related lymphedema

Frequently performed tests

A centralized online system for ordering noninvasive vascular examinations has been established. ABPI, PWV, carotid ultrasonography, abdominal ultrasonography, and echocardiography are performed in the systemic vascular disease screening program and the preoperative risk assessment program for patients with vascular disease. A detailed examination program is available for those requiring detailed examinations such as CT (MDCT), PVR, treadmill, NIRS, SPP, TcPO2, venous ultrasonography, APG, and D-dimer measurement. Conferences transcending departmental boundaries are held to conduct an interdisciplinary assessment of systemic vascular disease and determine treatment plans. For all of our adult inpatients, VB helps our staff to screen, treat and prevent venous thromboembolism.

Target diseases

Arteriosclerosis, cerebrovascular disorder, carotid stenosis, ischemic heart disease, arteriosclerosis obliterans, aortic aneurysm, venous thromboembolism, lymphedema, etc.
