Vascular Surgical Techniques describes a number of complex and controversial operations performed by the most eminent vascular surgeons from around the world.

This book focuses on operations in which special maneuvers or aspects of technique are important in determining a successful outcome, such as arterial surgery that includes procedures for revascularization of the brain, operations on the larger arteries, and microvascular surgery. The problems associated with aortic surgery and its important branches to the kidneys and viscera are also covered.

This text likewise considers surgery to the profunda femoris artery and lower limb revascularization that involves a bypass technique of one sort or another. The method s of performing one of surgery's main controversies that concerns the most effective way to reconstruct the femorodistal segment are also deliberated.

This publication is intended for practicing general and vascular surgeons, but is also valuable to general surgical trainees with an interest in the field of vascular surgery.
