Vascular and endovascular procedures are typically very “clean” procedures, with a very low infection rate. However, these complications, although rare, are unfortunately associated with a high rate of morbidity and mortality. The first rule to effectively treat the infection is always prevention, but when the infection has been established the only solution is given by an early diagnosis and proper medical care and often surgical treatment. The hardest thing is to obtain is an early and correct diagnosis, especially for low-grade infections. The purpose of our work was to strengthen the conviction that only an integrated work as a team will enable effective and quick management of this serious complication.
