In addition, it provides excellent long–term data on such less common procedures as internal carotid bypass, vertebral artery revascularization, adjunctive procedures to enhance the patency of infrainguinal prosthetic bypass, and percutaneous intentional extraluminal revascularization. Finally, this framework is reinforced by in–depth chapters on current non–interventional management, surveillance programs to enhance long–term patency, and the ultimate challenge for all practicing vascular surgeons – the management of infected aortic grafts.
Such clear, comprehensive, and current analysis should be of considerable and on–going value, both by helping vascular surgeons to make more effective decisions and to more knowledgeably discuss functional results, complication risks, life expectancy and surgical outcome issues with the patient and family.

"This book is of most value in providing multiple papers on patency for each specific procedure. These are often illuminating because of the enormous range of reported results. The presentation and tables are impeccable, and the English is of a high standard.... I think that this is a useful book for a department of academic vascular surgery to have on its shelves." (Journal of Vascular Surgery)
"The editors are to be congratulated on their enterprise in promoting the ′entente cordiale′." (British Journal of Surger)
