About this book


Emergency Vascular Surgery provides detailed guidelines to any physician treating patients with emergency vascular disorders, such as ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms, acute limb ischemia, vascular trauma, iatrogenic vascular injuries and complications to vascular surgery. It provides an introduction to vascular surgical operations and focuses on how to manage patients from the emergency ward through the urgent operation and all the way to the immediate postoperative period.  Numerous figures illustrate the particular points in vascular techniques and diagnostic problems in the emergency situation.
