Vascular Trauma

  • Raul Mattassi
  • Cesare Zorzoli


The incidence of vascular trauma has increased considerably in the last 35 years, not only because of various military conflicts but also because of civilian trauma such as that resulting from urban violence, traffic accidents, and home accidents. Other important origins of vascular trauma are iatrogenic lesions.
