    Providing real world case examples of vascular surgery emergencies and clinical scenarios, this well illustrated text supports trainees and residents in their daily clinical practice. The focus on decision making and clinical management planning helps trainees prepare for the FRCS (Vasc) and other specialist Vascular Surgery exams.

    Making speedy and appropriate clinical decisions and choosing the best course of action to take as a result, is one of the most important and challenging parts of postgraduate surgical training. These true to life cases will teach trainee vascular surgeons to develop clinical management plans, and to develop their diagnostic and management skills. 

    Key features:

    • Teaches the surgical trainee how to navigate real world clinical scenarios
    • Reinforces the practical application of basic principles
    • Encompasses challenging cases
    • Provides questions and answer options
    • Case reflections indicate the rationale behind the decision making

    A broad range of clinical conditions are covered to ensure that the trainee vascular surgeon can respond with confidence when presented with difficult new case scenarios.
