Vascular injury poses a small but significant challenge in Australian trauma care. Opportunities such as better practice guidelines and minimum standards will allow surgeons to improve delivery of quality care to the next generation of vascular trauma victims. Training in the management of vascular trauma surgery with integration of vascular and general surgery in trauma care should optimize outcomes. The authors' vision is that all vascular and general surgery trainees would eventually undertake the Definitive Surgical Trauma Care Course and improve vascular trauma outcomes and reduce mortality.
