Current Vascular Surgery 2014 addresses contemporary topics and controversies in vascular and endovascular surgery, providing a comprehensive overview of the field’s recent evolution. The volume is the result of the 39th Annual Vascular Symposium held at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine on December 11–13, 2014.
The contributions to this volume cover the full spectrum of vascular surgery, including changes in management of extracranial cerebrovascular disease, new treatment options for lower extremity arterial occlusive disease, hemodialysis, novel techniques for complex venous disease, and recent cutting-edge developments in aortic stent graft repair in the chest and abdomen. In conjunction with the presentations are corresponding chapters found in this hardcover book with more in-depth details and “pearls” from the experts. Each chapter has as its basis a presentation at the symposium, but the book chapters provide deeper, more detailed information than is possible in a symposium presentation.
- Clinical “pearls” from internationally recognized experts.
- Includes interviews from pioneers of vascular surgery.
- Fifty chapters in ten sections covering the full range of vascular surgery.
