Welcome to Cochrane Vascular

Cochrane Vascular is one of 52 worldwide review groups belonging to Cochrane. We produce systematic reviews encompassing all surgical and medical interventions for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of peripheral arterial and venous diseases.

Topics covered include aortic aneurysm; lower limb arterial occlusive disease, including intermittent claudication and critical limb ischaemia; and venous diseases including varicose veins and thromboembolism.

We have a world-wide membership composed of medical and surgical specialists, policy makers, statisticians and healthcare consumers who help produce our reviews. The wide range of activities involved in this are co-ordinated from the editorial base in Edinburgh. Here our small team of specialised staff is responsible for supporting our internationally based authors, editors, and referees; and for the administration of the group.
