Emergency Vascular and Endovascular Surgical Practice, Second Edition is structured with the emphasis on clinical presentation rather than pathology, the objective being to provide accessible and highly practical advice to the vascular surgeon faced with a particular emergency. Distinguished
vascular surgeons, vascular radiologists, and other specialists around the world have enriched this book with authoritative contributions reflecting their experience and expertise. For ease of reference, the text is divided into nine sections, leading with introductory chapters on general
considerations such as pathophysiology, preoperative diagnosis, risk assessment, and medico-legal aspects of vascular emergencies. That is followed by a series of clinical sections covering acute cerebrovascular syndromes, acute limb ischaemic states, the acutely swollen limb, thoraco-abdominal
catastrophes, acute complications of endovascular aortic repair, regional vascular trauma, and iatrogenic injuries. The book concludes with a section on miscellaneous, but important, acute vascular challenges. Wherever appropriate, modern endovascular techniques are given full coverage.
International in its approach, this book will fast become established as the "gold-standard" reference devoted to the surgical management of vascular and endovascular emergencies.
