Congratulations to Prof. Jim A. Reekers

Congratulations to Prof Jim Reekers, CVIR Endovascular Editor-in-Chief and CIRSE's former president for receiving the ESR Gold Medal at ECR 2020 in recognition of his achievements in the field of IR, which we hope will increase the visibility of IR and the importance of endovascular procedures.



CVIR Endovascular now indexed in PubMed Central

We are pleased to announce that CVIR Endovascular is now indexed in PubMed Central (PMC) / PubMed; two prestigious journal indexing and abstracting services and databases from the U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM).


This means that the full texts of all articles published in the journal are now available on PMC and the abstracts and citations are available on PubMed. This achievement reflects the growing success of the journal, its high-quality scientific articles, and the diversity and excellence of the editorial board, reviewers and authors. Indexing provides greater exposure and scientific validation for the journal and offers greater discoverability and visibility to our authors.


With its acceptance, CVIR Endovascular joins the league of other prestigious global medical journals who use the PubMed and PMC platforms to disseminate their work to millions of readers around the world who rely on the integrity of the NLM and NIH who curate these indexing services following intense scrutiny of the scientific, editorial and technical quality of its articles.



APC waiver for Letters to the Editor

Open access also means open discussion. Have your say and contribute to scientific discussion on endovascular treatments by submitting a Letter to the Editor critiquing a paper already published in CVIR Endovascular.

APC waivers available for this article type - contact for details!



Consent for publication

Please note that all case reports are presenting individual patient data and therefore authors need to state that they have a written statement from the patient(s) that he/she gives informed consent for publication. Read more on editorial policies here.


We encourage authors to use the below template for the Consent for Publication statement, which has to be included as part of the Ethics Declarations section:

 “Written informed consent was obtained from the patient for publication of this case report and any accompanying images.”

In the event that your institution does not have an appropriate Consent for Publication form that you can use, please get in touch with us at
