Small vessel disease is recognised as a common pathology associated with ageing, but its variability in terms of imaging and outcomes makes dealing with and counselling affected patients challenging. Professor Hugh Markus is an authority on this topic and will discuss the latest findings and how genetics help us understand it better.

This webinar will:

  • Describe the key underlying pathology of small vessel disease and its variants
  • Understand recent advances in genetics of this condition
  • Identify when and which investigations and interventions are appropriate
  • Be able to counsel patients and families on the risk factors and prognosis
