Complications in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Part I, edited by Alain Branchereau, MD and Michael Jacobs, MD, and written by leading international experts in their fields, closely examines possible complications following surgery of the cerebrovascular arteries, the thorax and upper limbs, and other commonly operated sites. Various complications (both common and uncommon) are identified and described, along with discussions of how to treat, and better yet, prevent them. Results of clinical trials are presented, as well as the personal experience of dozens of contributing authors. Clinical and surgical specialists interested in vascular and endovascular surgery, as well as any physician, surgeon, or medical professional involved in the vascular field will benefit from this detailed, current review.
