The track category is the heading under which your abstract will be reviewed and later published in the conference printed matters if accepted. During the submission process, you will be asked to select one track category for your abstract.

The study of diseases of the circulatory and the lymphatic system is called angiology. Vascular system is composed of blood vessels, especially arteries and veins, which carry blood and lymph throughout the human body. These are involved in various functions which include:

  • Transportation of blood, proteins, nutrients, O2, CO2 and other molecules
  • Tissue regeneration and reorganization
  • Developmental processes
  • Thermoregulation
  • Immune response
  • Wound healing

The vascular network is designed to accommodate varying levels of blood flow and pressure, depending upon their location within the body. Without the smooth flowing of blood, human body can’t function properly.

Vascular surgery is a sub-speciality of surgical procedures where vascular diseases are treated by medical therapy and other minimally invasive procedures. Vascular diseases can some time be treated by non-surgical procedures.

Cardiology is a medical domain and an outlet of internal medicine associated with heart disorders. It deals with the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures of conditions such as congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure and valvular heart disease. Other interests in the field of cardiology include cardiac electrophysiology, echocardiography, interventional cardiology and nuclear cardiology.

Vascular Biology is a study of the circulatory system that involves the heart and blood vessels. The vascular system is an important part of the body with a huge network of small and large blood vessels, accommodating varying levels of blood flow and pressure throughout the body. The major function of a vascular system is to transport blood, Oxygen, Carbon-dioxide and nutrients. It also helps in immune response and healing. There are different forms of vascular specialities based on diagnosis and therapeutic procedures.

Congenital Heart Defects are very common and occurs in about 3-5% of infant births. This defect is considered to be the leading cause of infant mortality. Various factors like genetic and environmental factors affect the development of such anomalies like maternal illness, chromosomal abnormalities, etc. In certain cases, the cause or the factors are not determined. Few Congenital heart defects include:

  • Adult congenital heart defects
  • Aortic/Pulmonary valvar stenosis
  • Atrial/Ventricular septal defect
  • Ebstein anomaly

Vascular diseases might be the leading cause of premature deaths and morbidity in the modern era. These diseases are abnormalities of blood vessels and can be present anywhere. These are manifested acutely when emboli, thrombi or trauma compromises perfusion. Vascular diseases may lead to ischemia and other fatal problems. Atherosclerosis is one of the most common vascular disease that people are affected with. One of the main triggers of atherosclerosis is Hypercholesterolaemia.

The causes of vascular diseases are sometimes unknown. However, major causes include:

  • Genetics
  • Heart Disease
  • Infection
  • Injury
  • Medicines

The symptoms for each disease are different. The diseases can however be prevented by developing healthy lifestyle changes.

Cardio-Vascular diseases are conditions which involves narrowed or blocked blood vessels which can lead to many forms of heart diseases. The symptoms of these diseases depend upon the type of heart disease and it may differ for men and women. The factors involved in developing heart diseases generally include:

  • Age
  • Sex
  • Family history
  • Smoking
  • Certain chemotherapy drugs and radiation therapy
  • Poor diet
  • High BP and Cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Physical Inactivity
  • Stress
  • Poor Hygiene

Certain heart defects can’t be prevented but some other types can be prevented by making changes in lifestyle.

Diagnosing vascular and cardiac diseases are a bit difficult, since there are a variety of symptoms that a person may have. However, physical examination, non-invasive testings using ultrasound (Doppler ultrasound), minimally invasive angiogram, cardio-vascular imagingCT Coronary angiogramCardiac MRI, etc are used to diagnose these diseases. 

The treatment for such diseases varies with the type of disease. Treatments vary depending on the conditions, where the treatment may include non-surgical or surgical procedures. Certain environmental factors may also help in the treat of these diseases.

According to research and studies, 1 in every 10 child born, has a vascular anomaly. These are often considered as birthmarks and are present either at birth or occurs in the first month of life. These vascular anomalies are composed of blood vessels, lymphatic vessels or capillaries that have been developed abnormally. Vascular anomalies include:

  • Hemangioma
  • Vascular malformations
  • Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome
  • Kasabach-Merritt syndrome/phenomenon
  • Tufted angioma
  • Kaposiform hemangioendothelioma
  • PHACE syndrome
  • Multifocal Lymphangioendotheliomatosis with Thrombocytopenia
  • Other rare diseases/ disorders/ conditions

Endovascular intervention is an innovative and minimally invasive procedure that are done to treat vascular diseases where the surgery involves making a small incision near the hip to access blood vessels. These types of surgeries are advantageous to many groups of people and the surgery generally takes 2 to 4 hours to complete.

Advances in molecular biology has increased the knowledge about genes and its control over physiological functions. Vascular reactivity is controlled by a large number of genes. Variable gene expressions are been seen in many vascular anomalies like hemangioma, lymphedema, etc. Research shows that multiple genes have been identified causing inherited forms of vascular anomalies including capillary malformations, venous malformations and lymphedema.

Genome transcriptomic analysis is being emerged as most powerful tools in translational research. The genome transcriptional profiling has become a standard approach in investigating biological processes.

Various research advances have donated to expand the results across all areas of Cardiology and Vascular Biology such as the new European guidelines on revascularization, new developments in the treatment of cardiogenic shock, novel stent technology and many more. Simultaneously, it is observed that there is a swift upsurge in the populations of patients with heart disorders. Due to this, the expectations of patients for new advancements also develop. Therefore, future Cardiology and Vascular world may show a novel approach to cardio-vascular therapy.
