Vascunet began in 1997 at the ESVS Annual Meeting in Lisbon. It was agreed that there should be a common European minimal dataset for vascular registries and an organising committee was set up to organise a session at the meeting for presentation of national vascular registries.
Vascunet is a sub-committee of the European Society of Vascular Surgery which aims to increase knowledge and understanding of vascular disease, and to promote excellence in vascular surgery, by means of international vascular audit.
The Vascunet Committee currently includes members from UK, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, Hungary, Finland, Norway, Italy and Spain, but other countries are welcome to join us.

Audit is essential to the maintenance of good clinical practice, especially in surgery, where outcomes are dependent on the careful selection of patients and the skills of the surgical and anaesthetic teams. It is important for surgeons and interventionalists to know their results and how these compare with others in their field.
Healthcare systems and hospital processes differ throughout the world and it is of great consequence to determine whether these differences influence clinical practice and results.
The Vascunet reports represent the attempt to compare vascular surgical practice indifferent countries. It will be of interest to practicing vascular surgeons and a useful guide for health care workers and managers.
