This new addition to the acclaimed Mastery of Surgery series guides readers step by step through all vascular surgical procedures, both open and endovascular. In the tradition of the series, this text/atlas is written by the world's master surgeons and richly illustrated throughout with detailed drawings, photographs, and imaging scans. Coverage of each procedure begins with indications, contraindications, preoperative preparation, anatomy, and patient management, followed by step-by-step descriptions of operative technique and pitfalls. For diseases in which open and endovascular approaches are used for different indications, both approaches are presented with discussions of when and why each is preferable. Each chapter ends with an editor's comment.
