Handbook of Complications During Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions
Minimal invasive endovascular treatment of peripheral arteries is one of the most rapidly evolving techniques in interventional therapies. Advanced technologies enable treatment of more complex lesions in severely diseased patients. Increasing evidence suggests that particularly in high risk patients endovascular solutions offer substantial advantages compared to vascular surgical procedures. Nevertheless, growing numbers of procedures are associated with an increased incidence of complications. Knowledge of specific complications in different vessel areas will support the interventionist in preventing such adverse events and if necessary provide considerable reassurance if such complications need to be resolved. The present book aims to systematically cover specific complications in peripheral vascular interventions. Typical and atypical complications are described for all peripheral vessel areas and methods how to handle these events are outlined. The book is divided in two parts: Part I reviews general aspects on complications in peripheral interventions, Part II covers the specific vessel areas.
