ESC Working Groups
Diseases of the Aorta, Peripheral Vascular Disease, Stroke

Dear Members of the ESC Working Group on Aorta & Peripheral Vascular Diseases (A&PVDs),

The Newsletter of our Working Group (WG) has the aim to improve the connection among the members of our WG.

The development of our WG goes well: we hope to reach the 500 members by the end of the year! Please do not hesitate inviting your colleagues and fellows to join us

We want an interactive and living community, so please do not hesitate to writing any suggestion to us.

Warmest wishes,


Prof. Victor Aboyans, MD, PhD, FESC

2018-2020 Chair of the WG of Aorta & Peripheral Vascular Diseases


We are happy to share with you the newest and most relevant publications with regard to our field of interest and clinical practice. We have created 3 sections, Aorta, PAD and Venous disease and with the help of our section editors we hope to catch your interest! 

Furthermore, we are very happy to give you an update on our first ETP in Brussels which was successful, developed our network and showed the relevance for what we are standing for as a Working Group of the ESC. Special thanks to all those who contributed for this issue.

Happy reading,
