Description / Abstract:


Minimal invasive endovascular treatment of peripheral arteries is one of the most rapidly evolving techniques in interventional therapies. Advanced technologies enable treatment of more complex lesions in severely diseased patients. Increasing evidence suggests that, particularly in high-risk patients, endovascular solutions offer substantial advantages compared to vascular surgical procedures. Nevertheless, growing numbers of procedures are associated with an increased incidence of complications. Knowledge of specific complications in different vessel areas will support the interventionist in preventing such adverse events and, if necessary, provide considerable reassurance if such complications need to be resolved. The present book aims to systematically cover specific complications in peripheral vascular interventions. Typical and atypical complications are described for major peripheral vessel areas and methods to handle these events are outlined.

The book is divided in two parts: Part I reviews general aspects on complications in peripheral interventions, Part II covers the specific vessel areas. Each chapter on the specific vessel areas includes
  • Introduction to the frequency and type of complications in this vessel area
  • Factors identifying patients at high-risk for complications
  • Complications of specific interventional steps and tools
  • Methods to detect potential complications – which diagnostic steps are needed routinely to rule out or identify complications
  • Endovascular, surgical, and medical techniques to resolve complications
  • Methods to avoid complications
  • Summary
  • Check list for emergency equipment for interventions in this specific vessel area.

We intended to focus on practical tips for the interventionist in the cath lab, to review complicated cases and outline different strategies in real-life cases, and thus to share the experience of high-volume interventionists with the reader. We hope that this book is a practical guide for quality improvement which will help to improve the safety of our patients undergoing peripheral vascular interventions.
