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.
Prevention of complications in vascular and endovascular surgery is an important consideration for all practicing surgeons. The keys to achieving clinical success are based on careful selection of both patient and procedure, along with meticulous operative and endovascular techniques. Management of complications requires careful planning and urgent intervention.
