Rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm is one of the leading causes of death. The risk of rupture has been a controversial topic for years and only recently have population-based studies provided better evidence for clinical management.
This book includes material by an internationally renowned group of authorities directed by a prominent member of the faculty of the Mayo Clinic. The contents represent a well-balanced clinical endovascular approach to the exciting area of vascular medicine and surgery.
"We are living in a period of exciting transformation. The message for anyone interested in the treatment of vascular disease is to embrace the new endovascular techniques—learn them and improve them. This is the beginning of a new era." - Albert Hakaim
