Geriatric Vascular Trauma and Vascular emergencies

Chapter

Abstract

We review the epidemiology, diagnosis, and management of vascular injuries to the extremities in this chapter. For the purpose of practical learning we define the extremities as upper anything distal to the intrathoracic subclavian artery, and lower as anything distal to the common iliac arteries. We present any injuries resulting from blunt and penetrating noniatrogenic trauma.
