Description
The Evidence for Vascular or Endovascular Reconstruction provides a comprehensive "head-to-head" forum for the debate into open versus endoluminal vascular treatment. Controversial treatment options are supported by evidence, in which the pros and cons are both explored and analyzed by an international panel of experts and their contributors, widely recognised as the leading authorities in the field. It is a one-stop resource for both the trainee vascular surgeon and the vascular consultant who requires a comprehensive view into the various management options as well as the evidence supporting the more difficult vascular procedures.

The book is illustrated with over 150 half tones and 30 specially commissioned line artworks. It is edited by the renowned Roger Greenhalgh and has over 35 expert contributors drawn from all continents of the world.

Every physician and surgeon involved in the care of patients with peripheral vascular disease will find this book an invaluable resource.
