Open Access Medical Books


Edited by Dai Yamanouchi .

Vascular surgery is one of the specialties of surgery focusing on the vascular system of 
the body, i.e. arteries and veins. The unique feature of this specialty is, unlike other 
surgical specialty, that vascular surgeons routinely perform not only the conventional 
open surgery but also the diagnostic and interventional endovascular procedures. For 
that reason, the field of vascular surgery has evolved rapidly since the introduction of 
the endovascular aneurysms repair (EVAR) as well as the numerous techniques and 
devices of endovascular procedures for peripheral artery disease and varicose veins.
This book aims to provide a brief overview of conventional open vascular surgery, 
endovascular surgery and pre- and post-operative management of vascular patients.
The collections of contributions from outstanding vascular surgeons and scientists 
from around the world present detailed and precious information about the important 
topics of the current vascular surgery practice and research. This book covers a wide 
variety of issues and topics of the vascular surgery. I would like to acknowledge the 
authors around the world for their excellent contributions to this book. I also would 
like to express my special thanks to the managing editor of INTECH for providing me 
numerous supports and advices.
I hope this book will be used worldwide by young vascular surgeons and medical 
students enhancing their knowledge and stimulating the advancement of this field.
