Chapter 13 covers anaesthesia for vascular surgery, and papers chosen for this chapter therefore relate to how mortality and morbidity associated with vascular surgery can be reduced, including endovascular aneurysm repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm, identifying those patients most at risk of mortality following aneurysm surgery, perioperative use of beta-blockers, statins, and better control of blood glucose metabolism, and the part played by the choice and management of anaesthesia on vascular surgical patient outcomes, including regional anaesthesia for carotid endarterectomy, and the debate about an effect of anaesthetic technique on surgical outcomes for lower limb revascularization and arteriovenous fistula formation.
