Virtual Vascular – Call for Editor

About Virtual Vascular

Virtual Vascular is an online resource for all vascular specialists and healthcare workers who treat patients with vascular diseases. The resource is hosted through the ESVS website, and free to ESVS members and individual subscribers.

Construction of Virtual Vascular began in 2020, and there are currently 24 chapters online.

The aim is to produce a living ‘textbook’ with chapters written by expert vascular specialists using the latest digital techniques to enhance learning, with videos and podcasts. Since Virtual Vascular is online only, updating chapters is easy, giving a major advantage over standard textbooks. Virtual Vascular will be the complete vascular resource, and always up-to-date. ‘Chapters’ in Virtual Vascular go online as soon as they are accepted, and the aim is to build a complete library by last quarter of 2023.

Virtual Vascular was created in 2019 by three editors: Martin Björck (Sweden), Sebastian Debus (Germany) and Jonothan Earnshaw (UK). Professor Björck has stood down in the spring of 2021 and Prof. Maarit Venermo has joined the editorial team as a successor.
