About this Book

Rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm is one of the leading causes of death. The risk of rupture has been a controversial topic for years and only recently have population-based studies provided better evidence for clinical management.


This book includes material by an internationally renowned group of authorities directed by a prominent vascular surgeon at Mayo Clinic. The contents represent a well-balanced clinical endovascular approach to the exciting area of vascular medicine and surgery.


"We are living in a period of exciting transformation. The message for anyone interested in the treatment of vascular disease is to embrace the new endovascular techniques - learn them and improve them. This is the beginning of a new era." A. G. Hakaim
