This book is a collection of chapters written for the 2006 meeting of ''Controversies and Up-dates in Vascular Surgery'' held in Paris.
In the book, you will find the most up to date information required for current daily practice as vascular surgeons. However, not all decisions in surgery are evidence based as many patients fall outside the convenient frame of study groups observed in randomised studies. Among the wide range of technological advances designed to overcome technical problems or specific management issues, many will not stand up to the robust scrutiny of clinical evaluation. However, the few which prove to be efficient will help improve the care of patients and the understanding of their diseases.
