Like in many associations, the ordeal undergone by secretary in ensuring all is well is back breaking. Exceptions make a rule and my tenure was to my delight. Active members are in the knowhow of activities ensued through the year. This secretary's report is customary and an opportunity for members who could not catch up.
In comparison, Vascular Surgery and its advancements are less known than other fields of medicine. To promote awareness, VSI sponsored two programs. One was spearheaded by Dept. of Vascular Surgery, CMC Vellore. The deliberations were at Kotagiri. The other was an initiative by Dr. Narenthranath Meda at KIMS Hyderabad. Both were well received.
The XIth Mid-term meet at Bangalore was a thumping success. More than forty-five residential postgraduates in peripheral vascular surgery from the teaching institutes spread all over India have actively participated. The Karnataka Vascular Surgery team with Dr. Ravikumar at the helm ensured elaborate food for thought and stomach.
Our President Prof. S R Subrammaniyan has attended the ESVS 32nd Annual meet at Valencia, Spain. Representing our body, he shared of our activities of current and yesteryears. To facilitate his communiqué, he had taken along posters and brochures.

The report presents an abstract of main activities. This besides numerous activities were executed which strengthens our society.
On behalf of VSI, I thank Jammu team for their excellent management of what has turned out to be a successful and highly stimulating annual conference. I am sure that everyone must have told you this. Such a conference involves enormous amounts of time and energy and you must have been working so hard lately for everything to fall into place as it has. Hats off to Dr Arvind Kohli, Dr Gurjit and team!
Signing off with a sense of accomplishment and as one blessed to serve esteemed VSI.
