The uniqueness of the Maastricht Heart+Vascular Center
The Maastricht Heart+Vascular Center combines monodisciplinary heart and vascular specialities in one coherent, interdisciplinary organisation. In this model, cardiology, cardiac surgery, vascular surgery, vascular medicine, vascular neurology and vascular dermatology and their related outpatient clinics and clinical & research activities are fully integrated. The distinctive feature of the Center is the organisational integration of interdisciplinary cardiovascular specialities that maintain their professional autonomies, whether their activities are related to the outpatient clinic, the inpatient clinic or research.
