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. IncreasingMoreMinimal 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.This 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.Each chapter on the specific vessel areas includesIntroduction on the frequency and kind of complications in this vessel areaFactors identifying high risk patients for these complicationsComplications of specific interventional steps and complications for specific interventional toolsEndovascular techniques to resolve these complicationsMethods to avoid these complicationsSummaryCheck list for an emergency equipment for interventions in this specific vessel areaThe books focus is on practical tips for the interventionist in the cath-lab- reviewing complicated cases and outlining different strategies in real-life cases, thus to share the experience of high-volume interventionists with the reader.
