The ESVS has launched a new exciting project – ESVS e-Library with the main focus to provide a “state-of-the-art” online educational experience in order to develop knowledge in vascular surgery.

The platform will include various educational materials, such as videos from ESVS events (Webinars, Masterclasses, Annual Meetings and more), podcasts, abstract books, and other documents.  In addition, the e-library will include the new ESVS electronic textbook– “Virtual Vascular” with chapters on pre-defined topics written by experts in different fields of vascular surgery and updated on a regular basis.
