Polyvascular Disease: Reappraisal of the Current Clinical Landscape.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Atherosclerosis within 2 or more arterial beds has been termed polyvascular disease. Although polyvascular disease has long been associated with heightened cardiovascular risk, much is still unknown regarding its pathophysiology and management.
