Current Vascular Surgery: 43rd Northwestern Vascular Symposium addresses contemporary topics and controversies in vascular and endovascular surgery, providing a comprehensive overview of the field’s recent evolution. This volume is the result of the 43rd Annual Vascular Symposium sponsored by the Division of Vascular Surgery, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University. The symposium was held in Chicago on December 6–8, 2018 at the InterContinental Hotel on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. The contributing authors were selected on the basis of recent peer-reviewed publications and national societal presentations; all are recognized leaders in their disciplines.

Current Vascular Surgery: 43rd Northwestern Vascular Symposium provides a comprehensive analysis of the current management of vascular disease as it relates to treatment of extracranial cerebrovascular and supra-aortic trunk disease, new approaches to lower extremity arterial and venous problems, and recent cutting-edge developments in open and endovascular approaches to treat aortic and visceral arterial disease, as well as novel techniques for hemodialysis access, complex venous problems, and upper extremity disorders.
Each of the 54 chapters has as its basis a presentation by an internationally recognized expert at the 43rd Annual Vascular Symposium but includes more in-depth details than is possible in a symposium presentation.
