Complications in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Part I, edited by Alain Branchereau, MD and Michael Jacobs, MD, and written by leading international experts in their fields, closely examines possible complications following surgery of the cerebrovascular arteries, the thorax and upper limbs, and other commonly operated sites. Various complications (both common and uncommon) are identified and described, along with discussions of how to treat, and better yet, prevent them. Results of clinical trials are presented, as well as the personal experience of dozens of contributing authors.

Clinical and surgical specialists interested in vascular and endovascular surgery, as well as any physician, surgeon, or medical professional involved in the vascular field will benefit from this detailed, current review.

"The topics are distinctly relevant for any physician treating patients with vascular disease. Surgeons interested in recognizing, treating, and preventing complications in vascular surgery will derive the most benefit from the book. The editors are recognized authorities in the field and have gathered an experienced group to address the subject matter....

"The authors thoughtfully introduce important terms that are unfamiliar to many physicians and challenge the reader to think about complications from a unique perspective. Chapters on prosthetic graft durability and infection offer useful insight into this difficult problem...A chapter dedicated to complications in the endovascular treatment of carotid stenosis is especially timely in dealing with this controversial technique.

"Overall, the chapters are concise and complete, including tables that clearly represent the issues. The expert authors often provide data from their own investigation adding a unique insight into the current understanding and management of complications in vascular surgery. The book is well illustrated and includes a valuable list of references."
