This e-Textbook is aimed primarily at vascular specialists and healthcare professionals dealing with patients with arterial, venous and lymphatic diseases. ‘Chapters’ are included on the diagnosis, investigation and management of these vascular disorders. Also technical aspects of vascular and endovascular surgery are included, and ESVS owned multimedia resources may be included (such as videos, podcasts). This virtual textbook aims to incorporate educational aspects of practical training and therefore includes sections to each procedure.
