In recent years, the growth in endovascular procedures has meant that vascular trainees may not gain sufficient experience to be competent in open vascular reconstructions following completion of their training. At the same time many senior surgeons have somewhat limited experience of endovascular techniques. This book will assist junior and senior surgeons and trainees in performing all types of vascular reconstructions. A key feature of the book is its clear illustrations, accompanied by pertinent case examples from vascular registries, so that readers can perform these operations with clear understanding of anatomical exposure and dissection, simplifying the conduct of the procedure.
[This book] is attractively presented with clear images. Most sections include a discussion of the indications for and planning of each procedure. An interesting aspect of the book is the case vignettes that accompany each procedure, which truly simplify the clinical scenario and treatment strategy.This effort truly represents a practical approach to performing the open and endovascular procedures presented in the book. Trainees who are not experienced in performing a procedure, and even experienced vascular surgeons who have not performed a particular operation or endovascular intervention in a while, can refer to this book for a quick review.

This is the rare textbook that provides insight and advice for all levels; from the medical student interested in vascular surgery to the experienced surgeon. The editors have managed to distill a contemporary vascular surgery practice into a manageable sized text, while still respecting the underlying pathology, natural history, and epidemiology of the entire breath of vascular disease processes. This is an excellent reference book for surgeons of all levels, and I would recomend it for anyone who takes care of the vascular surgery patient.

The benefit of this book is that the authors describe the optimal technique based on their own experience. I thoroughly recommend this book and found it worthwhile during my training to become a vascular surgeon.
