The Hungarian Society for Angiology and Vascular Surgery was established in 1966 by vascular surgeons and angiologists.

The Society of Vascular Surgeons of Slovenia was founded in June 2007 with the aim of »…preserving,protecting and improving the health of patients with vascular pathology and advancing knowledge, skills,and research in the field of vascular surgery«.But since at that time vascular surgery was not acknowledged as a separate surgical specialty in Slovenia this was also set as a major goal of the Society. The first president was prof. Vojko Flis who organized a remarkable vascular center at his University hospital in Maribor, where surgeons from other general hospitals came to improve their vascular skills and knowledge. Another honorable member of the Society, prof. Tomislav Klokočovnik from the University Clinical Center of Ljubljana made also a great contribution to the vascular society by mentoring many general surgeons who struggled to enter the field of carotid and aortic surgery. In 2012 the president elected became prof. Mladen Gasparini who is also the actual president. With the help of supporting vascular friends from the USA (prof. Igor Gregorič), EU (prof. Michael Jacobs), and from the Slovenian vascular community he started a winding path toward the affirmation of vascular surgery as an independet specialty. He succeded in 2018 when the specialization was formally acknowledged and the first residents started their uncertain path toward a modern vascular specialist. Today the Society is composed of 43 specialists and 11 residents. Every year a national meeting is organized with the aim of presenting and debating different scientific and organizational aspects of the complex vascular reality.
