Cardiovascular Disease

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a general term for several conditions affecting the blood vessels in and around the heart. The most common forms of cardiovascular disease include coronary artery disease and hypertension (high blood pressure). In addition to a direct impact on the heart muscle, CVD can also contribute to stroke, which occurs when something blocks blood supply to part of the brain, or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts.

VA health systems research into CVD encompasses many aspects of care including access, delivery, prevention, and quality of life.
