The text provides extensive coverage of the more common vascular pathologies such as acute limb ischemia, venous emergencies and arterial occlusion, while also devoting considerable space to less frequent, yet equally challenging situations, such as blunt trauma of the carotid artery and stab wounds to the base of the neck. A number of new insights are provided, for example, the utility of endovascular approaches to the rupture of the abdominal aorta as opposed to the traditional surgical intervention. Authors also explore the contribution of underlying pathologies such as peripheral aneurysms and diabetes to emergency situations. A range of surgical, endovascular and thrombolytic therapies are covered, alongside an appreciation of the wider bioethical concerns relevant to vascular emergencies.
