Welcome to the website of The Korean Society for Vascular Neurology.

Recently, with the rapid increase of the elderly population, cerebrovascular disease has become one of the four major causes of death in adults and has become an important research area facing the modern medical world. Although many diathermy societies have already dealt with the field of cerebrovascular diseases, recent trends in rapid medical development have necessitated more active research on cerebrovascular disease.

Stroke, which deals with acute stroke, a typical vascular system disease, has been developed mainly in past epidemiology. Recently, neurocritical care, which focuses on acquiring and applying acute care technology, has been classified as a separate society We are. The two societies in the United States are applying different concepts to treat acute illnesses such as stroke. Therefore, in a new field requiring integrated knowledge such as vascular dementia and cognitive dysfunction, a new integrated discipline of vascular neurology became necessary rather than a fragmented academic approach in the past.

The necessity of approaching and studying the neurological fields connected with these vessels under a comprehensive concept is already underway in the United States for the separation of vascular neurology from the field of neurology, There is. In the field of basic research, vascular neurology research is integrated to produce many excellent achievements. In the existing clinical neurology, it is necessary to establish a new concept of integrated vascular neurology in order to better diagnose and treat patients.

We have established the Integrated Vascular Neurology Society by combining the Cerebral Palsy Intervention Research Society, which was operated for about 4 years ago, the cerebral blood vessel division of the neurocritical care society and the vascular dementia study group. The society will exchange opinions through the exchange of the results of the research centered on academic journals and symposiums, and will give practical help to the medical personnel engaged in the field of vascular neurology.
