While a relatively uncommon entity, Arteriovenous fistulas represent tremendous challenges to surgeons and patients alike. The condition is as unique as it’s multifactorial etiology and multidisciplinary reach.
With this thought in mind, “Arteriovenous Fistulas: Diagnosis and Management”, is an attempt to re-visit the basics of this vascular disorder and re-acquaint the reader with the crucial elements of a thorough diagnostic workup and treatment application. Inside this thorough text you will find an inclusive guide to a complete review of the most common presentations of arteriovenous fistulas, the techniques for accurate diagnosis as well as treatment pearls. For simplicity sake, we have divided the text into five major forms of arteriovenous fistulas: 1) Intracranial 2) Spinal 3) Systemic 4) Traumatic and 5) Iatrogenic.
“Arteriovenous Fistulas: Diagnosis and Management” takes complex subject matter and distills it to an easily understood, reproducible and enjoyable experience that will be welcomed by surgeons across subspecialties, including Neurological, Orthopaedic, Vascular, Trauma and General, as well as non-surgeons such as Neurologists and Critical Care Intensivists.
Attendings, fellows, residents, medical students or anyone interested in sharpening their diagnostic and therapeutic skill set will benefit from reading this text.
Finally, I must thank all of the authors who contributed so much of their time, wisdom and experience in creating the final product you hold before you. On behalf of everyone associated with this work, I sincerely hope you enjoy learning and implementing your new skills as much as I have enjoyed organizing the material.
