Lower Extremity Vascular Disorders (Arterial and Venous), a volume in the Modern Trends in Vascular Surgery series, represents a compilation of topics related to lower extremity vascular disorders. It is divided into four sections:
(1) Northwestern Vascular Surgery Annual Symposium reflects on its history; (2) Arterial Disease covers exercise therapy for claudication, open and percutaneous common femoral artery interventions for occlusive disease, challenges to and advancements in stent technology, vein harvest and bypass surgery, arterial injuries after knee trauma, and iliac endofibrosis; (3) Venous Disease addresses abdominal and pelvic venous compression syndromes, varicose vein management, acute lower extremity deep venous thrombosis, and approaches to venous ulcers; (4) Wounds consists of one chapter covering advances in wound management.

The annual symposium on vascular surgery, sponsored by the Division of Vascular Surgery at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, addresses contemporary topics and controversies in vascular and endovascular surgery. Presentations at the symposium cover the full spectrum of vascular surgery, including changes in management of extracranial cerebrovascular disease, new treatment options for lower extremity arterial occlusive disease, hemodialysis access, improvements in techniques for complex venous disease, and developments in aortic stent graft repair in the chest and abdomen. The Modern Trends in Vascular Surgery series is a topical compilation of the standout presentations from the most recent three symposia.
