Literature Monitor

Vascular Access Literature Monitor

The vascular access science and clinical experience are growing exponentially. None of us is able to read or even to follow all articles in time. This was why we created this Literature Monitor for VAS members. If you have read an interesting article, make some short comment and put it into the following form. We hope that the number of comments will grow so that we all can use this section as a vascular access newspaper.
Enjoy it and, please, contribute to it!

You can contribute to the Literature Monitor by clicking on add review. You can fill out the title of the article in the first field, the details of the authors and the journal in the second field and of course your comments in the third field.
