The chapters of this book are based upon the presentations made at the meeting ''Controversies and Updates in Vascular and Cardiac Surgery'' held in Paris, France, in January 2004.The broad scope of topics reflects the evolution of our knowledge and practice of Vascular and Cardiac Surgery.The development of endoluminal techniques has clearly enlarged the possibility of treatment for patients who were previously denied surgery.However, while these innovations are becoming routine and large experiences and longer follow-up are available, dark sides are emerging,Patient's selection, new devices, and also new tools such as laparoscopic interventions and in an unforeseeable future gene therapy may improve the overall results.ContentsAre aneurysms treatable by cell or gene therapy?Role of thrombus in the structure of the abdominal aortic aneurysm wallAsymptomatic carotid surgery trial (acst): 5-year resultsCarotid surgery without conventional angiographyDoes prophylatic carotid endarterectomy reduce the risk of stroke in neurologically asymptomatic patients undergoing coronary bypass?Bypass in the arm: how to do it, what are the results?A multidisciplinary approach for saving limbs: preliminary outcomesIsolated infra-renal abdominal aortic stenosis: surgery or angioplasty?Remote iliac endarterectomy: a benign technique for all comersOpen aorto-iliac bypass remains the most durable optionMulticenter pivotal trial results of the lifepath system for endovascular aortic aneurysm repairRenal function and transrenal fixation of stent graft How to explant failed endovascular graftsEndovascular reconstruction of the superficial femoral arteryEdwards symposium: lifepath AAA graft system, an innovative solution to challenge EVAR indications. Endoleaks and aneurysm sac reductionSubintimal angioplastyIs distal cuff worth the efforts?Tibial angioplasty for limb salvage: are the results improved by the newest technologyDuplex vein graft surveillance: does limb salvage justify the cost?Risk factors for abdominal aortic aneurysm ruptureEndovascular treatment of ruptured AAA: the panaceum?Technical refinements with open repair of pararenal aortic aneurysmFenestrated stent-grafts for short-neck infrarenal aortic aneurysms: doable but durable?The role of branched stent-graftsVaricose vein treatment: emerging miniinvasive proceduresVaricose vein surgery: an obsolete procedure? Against the motionAre stents justified for nonmalignant iliocaval occlusive disease?Surgery of the proximal aortic arch branchesTraining for laparoscopic aortic repairExperimental replacement of the descending thoracic aorta using a sutureless vascular prosthesisAutomated stapled vascular anastomosis: where do we stand?Automated suture: the sudyn deviceTotally laparoscopic aorto-iliac surgeryTotally laparoscopic or short laparotomy: which approach do we prefer for aortofemoral bypass grafting?Laparoscopy-assisted aortoiliac surgery: mid-term resultsEndoscopic fenestration of AAA for hygroma and growing AAA after endovascular repairRobotic surgery of the aorta: a dream comes trueLaparoscopic repair: is it the future of aortic surgery?ADVANTAGE valve: first resultsCan we lower the age limit for bioprostheses?Stentless bioprosthesis valves: risks and advantagesSurgical repair of the aortic valve and rootAortic arch aneurysm treatment: open repair is still the safest optionAortic arch repair: covered stent is preferableRedo surgery of the ascending aorta and the aortic archEndovascular thoracic aneurysm repairGreat vessel transposition for difficult aortic arch lesions
