Historically, vascular disease has been treated by a combination of open surgical procedures and medical management. Since the first description of a percutaneous procedure to dilate diseased lower limb arteries, the treatment of vascular disease has changed. Endovascular Intervention for Vascular Disease: Principles and Practice offers a diverse and comprehensive review of the current status of endovascular therapy for peripheral vascular disease. Setting a gold-standard in industry, it describes the entire spectrum of current techniques and emerging technologies including aneurysm repair, the management of occlusive disease, and vascular trauma.
Providing step-by-step guidance on arterial and venous interventions by anatomical site, the book collects expert discussions on recent clinical trials and procedures for venous disease, reconstruction, and repair. In addition to summarizing the current techniques and available evidence, it discusses likely future advances in the field, taking into consideration both the natural history of the disease and alternative therapies that may involve cell- or gene-based approaches.
"The authors are all experts in the field … The entire spectrum of vascular disease is covered, including vascular trauma and dialysis access. I applaud the editors for requiring specifics of the procedures in each chapter, while demanding that the chapters be short and easy to read in a single setting. … This book will enhance my library and I will use it as a refresher before going into endovascular cases I might not have done in some time. It is always good to note what technology is available in Europe, as we always lag behind in the U.S. It gives me something to look forward to."
