The technological improvement associated to increasing skills in treatment of aortic and peripheral vascular diseases increased life expectancy in vascular patients.
Every day vascular surgeons deal with patients and lesions more and more difficult. Moreover, new techniques are available to manage most conditions.
Literature lacks of comprehensive data about endovascular tips and tricks to treat all the vascular challenges.
Skilled operators have to provide the best treatment for every patient in their daily medicine routine. Their mission also includes teaching all the techniques and spreading their expertise.
