Prevention

By the term prevention, we mean the reduction of risk factors and the enhancement of protective factors.

In medicine, the main role of prevention is to avoid premature death and to increase life expectancy in combination with the best possible quality of life. The saying of ancient Hippocrates: “…prevention is better than cure” is still broadly accepted today.

Familiarization of an individual with sound lifestyle habits from an early age should contribute to prevention of vascular conditions. Following guidelines, such as never to start smoking, to regularly exercise, to have a healthy diet, to learn how to handle stressful situations without anguish and to undergo the appropriate screening tests at the appropriate age, may become “an investment of high return”.
