Vascular Surgery. There's a bunch of old vascular board-type questions floating around out there, published as sort of a SESAP type thing for Vascular Surgery. Beyond that? Dunno what else... I don't know what people think of the Osler Vascular course. The Moore text is a fairly quick and easy read if you just had to read a textbook. Rutherford is a bit thick for my tastes... And there's always VESAP, published by the SVS, but I don't know anyone who's looked into that either.
