A general search of the internet for vascular surgery will bring up hundreds of sites and the quality of information can be variable (Soot LC et al).  I have linked only sites with significant information content on vascular conditions. Links to other sites vary from academic summaries of available treatments to commercial sites with useful information. Site listing does not constitute an endorsement and I am not responsible for content or privacy policies on other sites.
