Carotid and Supra-Aortic Trunk Disorders will be a valuable addition to any vascular surgeon's reference library. Covered in this book is an overview of some of the more controversial topics of extra-cranial carotid disease such as the cognitive impact of carotid disease, management in the elderly population, impact of a contralateral occlusion, timing of intervention after an acute stroke, management of asymptomatic restenosis, and use of shunts. Arranged in five sections and 17 chapters - extracranial carotid disease, extracranial carotid interventions, external beam radiation and restenosis, complex carotid and subclavian artery disease, and a historical reflection on the field by Dr. James S. T. Yao - readers will find technical tips on treating subclavian artery aneurysms and carotid body tumors, performing extraanatomic supra-aortic trunk bypass, and a review of the durability and use of embolic protection devices. The annual symposium on vascular surgery, sponsored by the Division of Vascular Surgery at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, addresses contemporary topics and controversies in vascular and endovascular surgery. The symposium brings together leading surgeons to address timely topics and controversies in vascular and endovascular surgery. Presentations at the symposium cover the full spectrum of vascular surgery, including changes in management of extracranial cerebrovascular disease, new treatment options for lower extremity arterial occlusive disease, hemodialysis access, improvements in techniques for complex venous disease, and developments in aortic stent graft repair in the chest and abdomen. The Modern Trends in Vascular Surgery series is a topical compilation of the standout presentations from the most recent three symposia.
