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.
