The European Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery (EJVES) is aimed primarily at vascular surgeons dealing with patients with arterial, venous, and lymphatic diseases. Contributions are included on the diagnosis, investigation, and management of these vascular disorders. Papers that consider the technical aspects of vascular surgery are encouraged, and the journal includes invited state-of-the-art articles. Articles describing endovascular method and their critical evaluation are included, as well as reports on the emerging technology associated with this field. Discover here the editorial board of the journal.
