The chapters of this book are based upon the presentations made at the meeting ''Controversies and Updates in Vascular and Cardiac Surgery'' held in Paris, France, in January 2004.
The broad scope of topics reflects the evolution of our knowledge and practice of Vascular and Cardiac Surgery.
The development of endoluminal techniques has clearly enlarged the possibility of treatment for patients who were previously denied surgery.
However, while these innovations are becoming routine and large experiences and longer follow-up are available, dark sides are emerging,
Patient's selection, new devices, and also new tools such as laparoscopic interventions and in an unforeseeable future gene therapy may improve the overall results.
Are aneurysms treatable by cell or gene therapy?
Role of thrombus in the structure of the abdominal aortic aneurysm wall
Asymptomatic carotid surgery trial (acst): 5-year results
Carotid surgery without conventional angiography
Does prophylatic carotid endarterectomy reduce the risk of stroke in neurologically asymptomatic patients undergoing coronary bypass?
Bypass in the arm: how to do it, what are the results?
A multidisciplinary approach for saving limbs: preliminary outcomes
Isolated infra-renal abdominal aortic stenosis: surgery or angioplasty?
Remote iliac endarterectomy: a benign technique for all comers
Open aorto-iliac bypass remains the most durable option
Multicenter pivotal trial results of the lifepath system for endovascular aortic aneurysm repair
Renal function and transrenal fixation of stent graft
How to explant failed endovascular grafts
Endovascular reconstruction of the superficial femoral artery
Edwards symposium: lifepath AAA graft system, an innovative solution to challenge EVAR indications. Endoleaks and aneurysm sac reduction
Subintimal angioplasty
Is distal cuff worth the efforts?
Tibial angioplasty for limb salvage: are the results improved by the newest technology
Duplex vein graft surveillance: does limb salvage justify the cost?
Risk factors for abdominal aortic aneurysm rupture
Endovascular treatment of ruptured AAA: the panaceum?
Technical refinements with open repair of pararenal aortic aneurysm
Fenestrated stent-grafts for short-neck infrarenal aortic aneurysms: doable but durable?
The role of branched stent-grafts
Varicose vein treatment: emerging miniinvasive procedures
Varicose vein surgery: an obsolete procedure? Against the motion
Are stents justified for nonmalignant iliocaval occlusive disease?
Surgery of the proximal aortic arch branches
Training for laparoscopic aortic repair
Experimental replacement of the descending thoracic aorta using a sutureless vascular prosthesis
Automated stapled vascular anastomosis: where do we stand?
Automated suture: the sudyn device
Totally laparoscopic aorto-iliac surgery
Totally laparoscopic or short laparotomy: which approach do we prefer for aortofemoral bypass grafting?
Laparoscopy-assisted aortoiliac surgery: mid-term results
