The twenty chapters of Best Practice in Vascular Procedures cover the wide spectrum of daily vascular activities. The first part of the book describes the surgical and endovascular techniques of carotid artery revascularization, followed by evidence-based strategies for symptomatic and asymptomatic carotid artery disease. The second part concentrates on lower limb arterial bypass surgery and
endovascular revascularization in critical limb ischemia. Guidelines for open and endovascular treatment and the management of the diabetic foot complement the subject of critical limb ischemia. Following, treatment of thoracic aortic pathology is addressed: open and endovascular treatment of type A dissection, innovative treatment of arch aneurysms, surgical and endoluminal management of
descending and thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysms. Subsequently, open and endovascular surgery of infra- and suprarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms are described in detail, followed by endovascular strategies in acute and ruptured aneurysms. Based on existing scientific evidence, guidelines for abdominal aortic aneurysms are defined. The last part of this textbook consists of four subjects which play a major role in the future of vascular activities: the ideal educational curriculum, centralization of vascular procedures, cost-effectiveness of
interventions and finally the hybrid operating room.
