Welcome to this latest bumper edition of the Journal of Vascular Societies Great Britain and Ireland (JVSGBI). It contains 11 brilliant articles and two excellent supplements!

The first article is an editorial outlining the extensive but perhaps underappreciated work undertaken by the excellent vascular CRG. This is followed by three original research articles addressing CLTI and frailty; a review of vascular Ehlers Danlos syndrome which includes a novel, in depth presentation of the patient’s perspective; four research protocols and two interesting case reports.

We also present the prize-winning abstracts from the recent Annual Scientific Meetings of the VSGBI and its affiliated societies.

Finally we include two supplements – firstly the Scottish Physiotherapy Amputee Research Group (SPARG) guidelines regarding the management of intermittent claudication and secondly all the abstracts presented at the VSGBI ASM in Brighton in November 2022.

I would like to thank the journal reviewers and editorial board who continue to provide fantastic support for which I am really grateful. Please continue to submit your articles for consideration of publication.
