Abstract

Management of vascular injuries, especially when they occur in combination with fractures, soft tissue loss, and nerve damage, is extremely challenging. Successful approach requires setting clear priorities, a logical plan of interventions, and close coordination between various subspecialty services. This chapter highlights the basic principles of vascular injury management that can be used by health care providers from a variety of backgrounds to save lives and limbs.
