This HJVES Issue is dedicated to Stylianos ‘Stelios’ Koutsias, Associate
Professor of Vascular Surgery, School of Medicine, University of Ioannina,
Ioannina, Greece. We express our deepest condolences to our
dear colleague, who was recognized for his many years of service as
a Vascular Surgeon in the University Hospitals of Larissa and Ioannina
and his contribution to the field of Medicine. The Academic Society, as
well as the Hellenic Vascular Society, lost a member who excelled in
ethics, hard work and courtesy. The HJVES lost an active Editorial Board
member, who also served as an author and reviewer, contributing a
lot in its success. Stelios Koutsias was an example of a scientist with a
high sense of responsibility, cooperation, team spirit and integrity. He
always will be remembered with the warmest of feelings.
