Function and Surgery of the Carotid and Vertebral Arteries

Function and Surgery of the Carotid and Vertebral ArteriesBy

  • Ramon Berguer, MD, PhD, Frankel Professor of Vascular Surgery and Professor of Engineering, Samuel and Jean Frankel Cardiovascular Center, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan

More than a procedural guide, the text represents a guide to decision-making—highlighting individual anatomy, patient screening, selection of procedure, surgical technique, avoidance of pitfalls, and management of potential complications.

  • Patient-centered approach highlights patient outcomes in the choice of surgical options.
  • Detailed descriptions of vascular anatomy, including anatomic variations, help tailor surgical approaches to each patient.
  • Procedural information weighs the pros and cons of open surgery, such as carotid endarterectomy (CEA), versus carotid angioplasty and stents (CAS).
  • Comparisons of open and intravascular procedures help readers make informed therapeutic choices for each patient.
