This new title provides a systematic review of complex cases in peripheral vascular interventions (PVI), a minimal invasive endovascular approach to treating peripheral arteries. This increasingly evolving area in interventional therapies offers reduced risk for complications compared to conventional surgery and takes advantage of advanced techniques to treat more complex lesions in severely diseased patients.
This book edited by two highly respected professors from the University of Vienna, Medical School describes typical and atypical complex cases for all peripheral vessel areas, and outlines methods to successfully and safely handle these interventions. The text is divided into two sections. The first reviews general aspects on managing complex patients in PVI, and the second discusses complex cases in specific vessel areas, examining the interventions from puncture to closure, head to toe. Each of the chapters in this section is further divided into three parts and provides:
Complex Cases in Peripheral Vascular Interventions offers readers the opportunity to tap into the knowledge of those working on complex cases in this cutting edge field and receive both theoretical information and practical tips on how to approach specific vascular lesions. This book is a highly recommended read for beginners in endovascular interventions who want to get an impression on the advanced scope of treatment options as well as for experienced interventionists who want t
