16th European Chapter Congress of the  International Union of Angiology

 October 25-27, 2005, Glasgow, UK




The 16th European chapter congress of the International Union of Angiology (EUROCHAP 2005) was held between the 25th and 27th of October 2005 in Glasgow UK. The EUROCHAP meeting offered a major opportunity to update clinical practices across the spectrum of Vascular Medicine/Angiology. In preparing for the Glasgow congress, we sought to link with other specialist societies to bring the attendees the most recent advances in these particular areas of interests. This interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary approach is reflected in this volume.
The meeting was of the highest academic quality and was enjoyed by all attendees. It is hoped this Volume will be similarly appreciated. It is crucial that there are adequate opportunities for our young clinicians, students and trainees to learn about the field of Vascular Medicine and it is hoped that this Volume provides the knowledge which will allow us to this.
