This book presents a practical overview of the widely used endovascular treatment of arterial emergencies, covering the majority of cases encountered in praxis. Including a wealth of high-quality images of arterial emergencies and treatment descriptions, it provides readers with essential information and shares insights into endovascular options.
However, the book focuses on presenting common arterial emergencies from diagnosis to treatment only, without exhaustively describing all endovascular options. The clinical cases explore thoracic arterial emergencies, followed by abdominal emergencies and peripheral arterial emergencies. Rare clinical cases are also examined.
The book offers interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons and cardiologists, as well as residents in these disciplines, a valuable tool for use in their everyday clinical praxis.
Dr. Stevo Duvnjak is an interventional radiologist with extensive experience in EVAR, TEVAR and various embolization procedures. He finished his medical education in Belgrade, Serbia in 1999, and took residency training in diagnostic radiology from 2002 to 2006. He has particularly focused on interventional vascular radiology and endovascular surgery since 2006. Currently, he is doing vascular surgery residency and working at the Department of Vascular Surgery at the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen.
His research interests include endovascular aneurysm treatment and embolization..
As author of more than 30 articles in international journals, at Odense University Hospital Dr. Duvnjak introduced percutaneous EVAR, ruptured AAA treatment with EVAR, and branched and fenestrated stent grafts.
