Announcing: New Case of the Month Series in Trauma Surgery and Acute Care Open
Vascular injury management has always been a major component of trauma surgery. Over the past decade there have been many advances in elective vascular surgery. General surgery training has been unable to keep up the pace in many areas, especially in the arena of endovascular techniques. While endovascular surgery has gradually gained an important role in trauma care, standard open vascular surgery continues to occupy a central role. TSACO is fortunate to have David Feliciano, as a guest editor, develop a series of monthly contributions on this exciting topic. Dr. Feliciano has been a key leader in treatment of vascular injuries for several years and is recognized as an international expert. He will highlight multiple areas of injury management demonstrating traditional approaches as well as introducing some important areas utilizing endovascular methods. These contributions will remind us that vascular surgery remains an important component of care for all trauma surgeons.
