Perspectives in Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy

These days, it’s harder and harder to keep up with all the advances in vascular surgery. That’s why there is Perspectives in Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy, the unique journal that offers both original articles and insightful commentary on recently published papers as well as other featured sections. Under the editorial leadership of Peter Gloviczki, MD, Professor of Surgery at the Mayo Clinic, each issue is committed to providing timely, state-of-the-art analysis.

• Comprehensive, in-depth articles on the latest advances in vascular surgery and endovascular therapy

• Expert Commentary presenting opposing points of view on new techniques and patient management issues

• Expert Exchanges featuring lively panel discussions on timely issues in vascular and endovascular surgery

• Current Controversies that take a close look at some of the most disputed topics in the field

• New Outlook section providing abstracts and commentaries that quickly bring you up to date on key issues in the field.

Perspectives in Vascular Surgery was started in 1988 with Editor Jerry Goldstone and his Gold Team Editorial Board including David Brewster, David Effney, John Porter, Robert Rutherford, and Frank Veith. To reflect progress in our discipline, the name was changed to Perspectives in Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy and included 2 issues per year plus 10 issues of Outlook in Vascular Surgery, a newsletter that provided provocative abstracts and commentaries.

Now, under the management of new publisher Westminster Publications, Perspectives and Outlook have been combined into one quarterly publication that will provide innovative, clinically relevant, interactive and up-to-date information on a variety of topics in each issue, with feature articles, reports on cutting-edge technology and new techniques, together with interesting and controversial commentaries and exchanges.
