Book Description

Patients with vascular disease offer great challenges to physicians of multiple backgrounds. The rapid improvement in multimodal imaging and the growth of endovascular strategies for treatment of peripheral vascular disease have resulted in an explosion in interest in these patients. But patients and physicians often misdiagnose vascular disease as normal signs of aging, resulting in presentation to specialists at the end stage of the disease process. This textbook, edited by two recognized experts in the field, is designed to offer unique and comprehensive information on the diagnostic approach to and state-of-the-art treatment of arterial and venous diseases. This multispecialty textbook will be a critical addition to the practicing clinician's library.

Doody Review

 

Reviewer
Sachin Phade,  M.D.  (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
 
Description
Edited by two internationally renowned experts in vascular medicine, this book introduces readers to a broad range of vascular diseases.
 
Purpose
The book aims to be the comprehensive reference source for all clinicians involved in the management of patients with vascular diseases.
 
Audience
The target audience is primarily practitioners and trainees in vascular medicine, cardiology, and vascular surgery. However, other interventionalists, medical doctors, advanced level providers, and caregivers also will find the book valuable, as it is pertinent for the care of the elderly, smokers, patients with diabetes, and those who are otherwise afflicted with vascular diseases.
 
Features
Written by a multidisciplinary team of medical doctors and surgeons, the book outlines the basic elements of a vascular history and examination but also delves into complex, and sometimes controversial, aspects of the evaluation and medical and surgical treatment of patients with vascular diseases. The chapters are authored by recognized authorities, who concisely detail the relevant basic anatomy and pathophysiology, diagnostic workup, medical management, and complications for practicing clinicians. The book introduces open surgical options and endovascular interventions without distracting readers with too many technical details. It begins with the evaluation of patients with peripheral vascular disease and includes sections focused on the assessment of peripheral artery disease; the aortic arch and supraclavicular disease; aortic, visceral, and renal artery disease; lower extremity arterial disease; nonatherosclerotic artery disease; venous disease; and hypercoagulability and uncommon vascular diseases. The book is well organized and easy to read, and the data is current, pertinent, and accompanied by numerous tables, colorful photographs, and relevant figures. Finally, each chapter includes a thorough bibliography for readers who want to review the original study designs and results.
 
Assessment
This is an excellent, succinct, and complete review of vascular medicine. It is a must-have for any student or practitioner who cares for patients with vascular diseases, especially vascular medicine specialists, vascular surgeons, cardiologists, geriatricians, internists, and interventional radiologists.
