Abstract

Patients undergoing non-cardiac vascular surgery have arterial disease affecting more than one vascular bed and commonly have multiple significant co-morbidities. The surgical and anaesthetic teams are asked to address pre-, peri- and postoperative management issues relating not only to the surgery but arising from these co-morbidities. Here we review the strategies and rationale for the optimisation of these high risk patients.
