Conferences and Lectures
While quality patient vascular care is the foundation of all the activities carried out by the Jobst Vascular Institute staff, it takes more than just practice to provide the best care. The key to ensuring that our care practices remain on the leading edge of today’s vascular treatments is our rigorous research program. The research that we do within Jobst Vascular Institute at ProMedica Toledo Hospital helps the patients that we see every day—and it will impact the care of patients with vascular disease into the next century. Our work will improve the lives and well-being of both our patients and the patients of vascular practitioners all over the world who follow our staff’s research activities.
We are proud of our institute's research milestones, which include:
- Leading the largest trial ever of non-operative, medical therapy for claudication (painful walking due to leg artery blockage).
- Pioneering follow-up methods by ultrasound monitoring to improve the results of leg artery bypass grafting.
- Studying control of aortic aneurysm by medication without surgery.
- Developing novel methods for venous surgery by minimally invasive, endoscopic techniques.
- Improving methods of carotid surgery to prevent stroke.
- Developing endovascular procedures and devices to improve care of aortic aneurysms and reduce length of hospital stay.
Successful research programs involve a great deal of communication among participants. Our most essential research participants are the patients who sign up for and participate in clinical research. Our clinical trials are critical to the success of JVI and provide a place where our patients can benefit from the very newest vascular technologies and care practices available.
Our vascular professionals are constantly seeking to improve their treatments by comparing notes with others in the field. The Conrad Jobst Lectureship is one such example of a forum where vascular professionals can meet and discuss the latest practices and problems in the field. Our staff members also attend and present research at vascular conferences and contribute to professional publications.
