Vascular Reconstruction in Oncologic Patients with Aortic and Visceral Artery Involvement
Vascular surgeons play an important role in surgical oncology. Outcomes of surgical oncology could be improved by increasing the radicality and safety of surgical procedures and, in selected cases, by broadening the range of surgical indications. A detailed collegial discussion of the individual case during oncological disease management team (DMT) meetings is equally important in order to accurately plan the surgery. Cooperation among the various specialists is the only way to broaden indications and improve outcomes. Despite the appealing possibility of dealing with injuries of almost any kind, oncological and surgical common sense is the main criterion when establishing indications to surgery.
