Prevention

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

In medicine, the main role of prevention is avoiding premature death and increasing life expectancy in combination with achieving the best possible quality of life. The ancient Hippocratic dictum: “…prevention is better than cure” is still broadly accepted today.

Adoption of sound lifestyle habits by an individual from an early age should contribute to prevention of vascular conditions. Putting into practice recommendations, such as to never start smoking, to regularly exercise, to have a healthy diet, to learn how to handle stressful situations without worrying and to undergo the appropriate screening testing at the right age, may become “an investment of high return“.
