Vascular Medicine Area

"We detect, with the most advanced technology, the degree of inflammation suffered by the arterial walls to prevent future cardiovascular issues and act on them in a timely manner."


The Vascular Medicine Area at the Clínica Universidad de Navarra in Madrid focuses on personalized prevention and early diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases. For this purpose, we use the most advanced technology that allows for precise characterization of the patient's cardiovascular risk.

In this area, specialists from the departments of Cardiology, Endocrinology, Nephrology, and Internal Medicine work in coordination to jointly address the patient's problems and offer a care pathway designed to quickly manage the performance of high-precision tests and follow-up, with a specific contact person for the personal needs of each patient.

This team of specialists is supported by a specialized nursing team that facilitates the learning and follow-up of all those guidelines and advice related to lifestyle and therapeutic measures proposed to minimize the cardiovascular risk presented by these patients.

Furthermore, the Vascular Medicine Area participates in clinical trials for the prevention of cardiovascular risk, allowing our patients to receive cutting-edge therapy and contributing to scientific advancement.
