Abstract

The terms “personalized” or “precision” medicine are being used commonly in some branches of medicine but have yet to be widely adopted in vascular surgery. Despite this, personalized vascular therapy occurs on a daily basis in every vascular specialist’s office as we strive to make informed recommendations at the individual patient level. The following is a description of several of the areas where advances in personalized vascular care have been achieved, including custom devices, personalized predictions, pharmacogenetics and surgicogenetics.
