Most of the law­suits in med­i­cal prac­tice are the ­result of inad­e­quate com­mu­ni­ca­tion ­between doc­tors and ­patients and lit­i­ga­tion has very lit­tle to do with ­errors. In the era of the tech­no­log­i­cal devel­op­ment and the imple­men­ta­tion of new tech­niques such as endo­vas­cu­lar ther­a­py, good com­mu­ni­ca­tion ­between phy­si­cians and ­patients is essen­tial. The pur­pose of this ­review is to elic­it impor­tant con­sid­er­a­tions on chal­leng­ing ­issues relat­ing to the art of com­mu­ni­ca­tion ­between phy­si­cians and ­patients and to pro­vide infor­ma­tion on what the vas­cu­lar sur­geon or inter­ven­tion­al­ist ­should bear in mind in obtain­ing an ade­quate ­informed con­sent from the ­patients.
