The field of vascular surgery is undergoing a rapid and profound transformation - this third volume of Blackwell-Futura's monograph series Endovascular Intervention: Today and Tomorrow will help the reader stay ahead of the changes. New therapeutic options and innovative strategies for the management of aortic aneurysms and carotid artery disease are the most obvious examples of recent "revolutionary" advances, while infrainguinal revascularization may be next, as catheter-based femoropopliteal recanalization reemerges at the forefront of a wave of explosive growth in intervention. The availability of new drug-eluting stents is a further catalyst to progress in the field. These subjects and many more are discussed in detail by the expert authors of the book's 14 chapters.

This timely volume will be of considerable interest to practising vascular specialists. Vascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists, interventional radiologists, cardiac surgeons, and general cardiologists will all benefit from this current, insightful review.
