This book is a unique collection of real life case histories written by experts that highlight the diversity of problems that may be encountered in vascular surgery. Each case scenario is interrupted by several questions that aim to engage the reader in the management of the patient and to give him the opportunity to test his kno- edge. The comments re?ect to as much as possible the principles of evidence based medicine and provide the answers to the questions. Several chapters are authored by individuals that contributed to the development of innovations in the management and prevention of vascular disease and are of interest for both the vascular trainee and the experienced vascular specialist. The goal of this book is to help vascular trainees review for Board and other examinations as well as to provide vascular surgeons who wish to expand or refresh their knowledge with an update and interactive source of information relevant to case scenarios that could be encountered in their practice. The European Boards in Vascular Surgery is a relatively new examination. Although the American Boards in Vascular Surgery were established many years earlier, there are no dedicated guides to cover the needs of these examinations.
