Quality initiative: New pocket guides now available
By Beth Bales
New pocket guides of the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) clinical practice guidelines and reporting standards are now available, with printed guides sent to all members.
SVS guidelines and reporting standards are extensively researched and written by leading vascular experts. Members are known to consider these documents as very useful resources.
Pocket versions will be sent to members in the mail. They include guides on abdominal aortic aneurysm, chronic limb-threatening ischemia (in the form of the Global Vascular Guidelines, published in 2019 by the SVS, the European Society for Vascular Surgery and the World Federation of Vascular Societies), the management of visceral artery aneurysms, and type B aortic dissections (Reporting Standards).
The SVS members have been mailed free printed copies of the spiral-bound guides. Members can download free digital version and purchase additional printed copies online at vsweb.org/PocketGuides. Nonmembers also may visit the site to purchase digital or printed editions.
Printing and distribution of these guides was supported by a block grant from W.L. Gore and Associates, Inc. All content was solely developed by the Society for Vascular Surgery.
With these new topics, SVS now has eight pocket guides available on a variety of vascular conditions.
