Complications in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery: how to avoid them and how to get out of troubleis the third in a highly successful series of publications from the Joint Vascular Research Group, which includes The Evidence for Vascular Surgery and Rare Vascular Disorders. This title has been inspired by the rapid development in the treatment of patients with vascular disease, which embraces the new endovascular techniques and changes to medical management that are revolutionising our treatment of these patients.
Each chapter is written to present up-to-date evidence-based information on the prevention and treatment of vascular and endovascular complications. Each author has been chosen to provide a particular expertise and experience to the presentation of their subject. There is a particular emphasis on the tips and tricks of "how to get out of trouble", and we hope this will help the reader in their practice of vascular and endovascular surgery. The authors are both past Chairmen of the Joint Vascular Research Group and present and past Secretaries of The Vascular Society of Great Britain and Ireland. We are very aware that vascular surgery continues to develop rapidly and that we all need to be kept updated on not only the new treatments available, but also on their risks and the management of their associated complications. We hope you enjoy this book and that it will help you manage the often complex complications associated with intervention on patients with vascular disease.
