Every other week, Rete7 Nordovest.tv broadcasts an hour dedicated to Vascular information for people suffering from diseases related to veins and arteries.
Dr. Maurizio Rodio responds to callers and identifies problem areas and suggests consultation. For those viewers who are unable to watch at that time, or unable to call-in, are welcome to submit a query that may be addressed in the next broadcast.
