Vascular diseases (VDs) are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in developed countries. Prevalent cases of total cardiovascular diseases (CVD) nearly doubled from 271 million in 1990 to 523 million in 2019, and the number of CVD deaths steadily increased from 12.1 million in 1990, reaching 18.6 million in 2019. VDs also significantly impair the quality of life. They remain the leading cause of disease burden in the world.
VDs are common and can be serious. Some types include: aneurysm, atherosclerosis, venous thromboembolism, coronary artery disease, peripheral artery disease, stroke, vasculitis, Raynaud’s disease and syndrome as well as lymphedema and chronic venous disease.
The most important behavioural risk factors of VDs are unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, tobacco use and harmful use of alcohol. The effects of behavioural risk factors may show up in individuals as raised blood pressure, raised blood glucose, raised blood lipids, and overweight and obesity.
“Bench-to-bedside” process harnesses knowledge from basic scientific research into clinical research to create novel treatments and medical procedures, preventions, and diagnostics essentially forming a bridge between basic research and clinical research. This Special Issue will therefore contribute to our understanding the knowledge about physiology, pathophysiology of vascular system, novel treatments as well as preventions, but not limited only to these issues.
In this Special Issue, manuscripts that focus on the topic “Vascular Diseases and Health” are welcome. This includes original in vitro, animal, and human research, cohort studies, systematic literature reviews, and meta-analyses.
