Four decades have gone by since CVIR was established. Back in 1978 Herbert L. Abrams and Eberhard Zeitler founded the journal with the goal of having a platform for scientific communication from all over the world in the field of cardiovascular and interventional radiology.


Since then, the journal has gone from strength to strength, publishing countless numbers of high-quality papers from some of the most prominent international authors in the field of IR.

On this occassion Prof. Hausegger has prepared an anniversary issue of CVIR. Find below a selection of key articles from CVIR’s previous issues, including historical papers, cornerstone papers and other popular articles.


We hope you enjoy reading your old favourites and adding some new ones to your list.
