Vascular Surgery

Front Cover
This book is designed to meet the needs of the vascular surgery trainee. It can be carried in the pocket for easy access and provides practical advice on all commonly encountered peripheral vascular problems. It focuses on surgical detail, but also carries background information on presentation and details on preoperative investigation and postoperative management. It gives relevant information for use when seeking patient consent. Each operation carries the latest OPCS code,increasingly important in recording surgical activity.Alternative interventions are given, including both radiological procedures and medical management where appropriate; an important approach given the evolving vascular surgery specialist who has responsibility in all of these fields. It informs the vascular trainee from their earliest encounter with the area to those completing their fellowship. It should also be of interest to the foundation year trainees on the vascular ward, the specialist vascular nurse, the vascular anaesthetist, theintensivist and the vascular radiologist.
