Increasing evidence suggests that particularly in high-risk patients, endovascular solutions offer substantial advantages compared to vascular surgical procedures. Nevertheless, growing numbers of procedures are associated with an increased incidence of complications. Knowledge of specific complications in different vessel areas will support the interventionist in preventing such adverse events and if necessary, provide considerable reassurance if such complications need to be resolved.
In Complications in Peripheral Vascular Interventions, typical and atypical complications are described for all peripheral vessel areas, and methods for how to handle these events are outlined.
The book is divided in two parts. Part 1 reviews general aspects on complications in peripheral interventions, and Part II covers the specific vessel areas. Each chapter on the specific vessel area includes
Offering practical tips for the interventionist in the cath lab, high-volume interventionists share their experiences by reviewing complicated cases and outlining different strategies used in real-life scenarios.
