CVIR Endovascular Year in Review: 2022

Looking back on this year so far, we are thankful for all the exciting updates and successes this year has brought. The Author Spotlight series premiered, our blog was introduced, the Reviewer Forum has grown to more than 50 members and we have of course published many interesting, innovative, and informative articles that can help interventionists in their daily practice.


CVIR Endovascular aims to offer a podium for discussion among authors, readers, reviewers in the IR community worldwide, from students to experts in the field. We look forward to continuing this mission into next year and thank you all for your continued support and contributions to the journal’s success.


All papers that were published this year were of high quality and clinical value, and it is extremely difficult to pick a sample to highlight. Prof. Reekers was given the difficult task of selecting ten articles to showcase this year and we hope you enjoy reading them!
