    Cardiovascular Disease

    Although the cardiovascular unit will focus on the disorders we frequently encounter in the western world, we are not going to leave out less common conditions. Clearly, you will need to be familiar with all aspects of atherosclerosis and its sequelae, but as you will see there's a lot more to vascular disease than just compromise of the vessel lumen. You will need to understand inflammatory conditions of the vessels as well as neoplastic disease involving the vascular system. Freely floating matter, such as blood clots, fragments of bone marrow or atherosclerotic material, amniotic fluid and even air also constitute important pathological processes of the vascular system. And as we will learn, the vascular system is even the target organ for some microbial agents.
