VESAP4 is an invaluable aid for vascular surgeons in preparing for the qualifying, certification, and recertification examinations in vascular surgery and to remain current in the specialty of vascular surgery and endovascular therapy. Vascular residents and fellows will find it a useful study aid for their ABSITE or VSITE examinations.
Interventional radiologists, cardiologists, vascular medicine specialists, and allied health care professionals focusing on vascular diseases may use VESAP4 self-assessment to keep abreast of the current practice of vascular surgery and endovascular therapy.
In Learning Mode, you can view the correct answer to each question, the rationale and references.
