Demonstrates a clear, stepwise approach to performing a wide range of open vascular and endovascular reconstructions
Provides case examples with pertinent figures and photographs to describe successful as well as unsatisfactory outcomes so that the surgeon can avoid these pitfalls
Describes in detail the steps to approaching redo (second time) and complex procedures (e.g. carotid endarterectomy with high plaque or in irradiated field)
Offers advice and guidance for vascular surgical trainees at all levels as well as experienced surgeons who perform open and endovascular reconstructions
In recent years, the growth in endovascular procedures has meant that vascular trainees may not gain sufficient experience to be competent in open vascular reconstructions following completion of their training. At the same time many senior surgeons have somewhat limited experience of endovascular techniques. This book will assist junior and senior surgeons and trainees in performing all types of vascular reconstructions. A key feature of the book is its clear illustrations, accompanied by pertinent case examples from vascular registries, so that readers can perform these operations with clear understanding of anatomical exposure and dissection, simplifying the conduct of the procedure.
