Being the last issue of 2016, I am filled with an enormous amount of myriad thoughts.

On the one hand, there is an enormous satisfaction and pride of helming Indian Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery over the past 2 years. The initial trials and tribulations against all the odds have begun to bear sprouts of academic shoots never before seen in India. This has translated in articles coming in from Asia and Middle East as well.

On the other hand, we face further challenges for our journal in the coming future. These involve getting the journal PubMed indexed and citable, involving more vascular specialists to be involved in the journal process, and keeping the journal away from any "political" interference from any direction.

In this issue, we share with you a review on aortic dissection from Kasturba Medical College, Departments of Radiodiagnosis, Pulmonary Medicine, and Anaesthesia, on aortic dissections. It is interesting to see the perspective of a wide range of medical professionals paving the way for a unified multidisciplinary approach for this complex pathology.

Our basic sciences section covered an exposition of variations in obturator artery anatomy would be useful to all anatomists and vascular surgeons who are called upon to perform an obturator bypass.

We have an interesting historical vignette on the history of Heparin by Dr. Devender Singh that details the development of this crucial vascular drug, followed by a range of case reports on the misadventures of a missed guidewire, hypothenar hammer syndrome, and lower extremity aneurysms and their management.

I hope you enjoy this issue and are inspired to be a part of it in future as we go forth with your support, innovation, and contributions. Please accept my best wishes for the upcoming year.
