Peripheral vascular disease is a common, disabling malady, and patients seeking treatment may turn to their cardiologist for advice and treatment. Conventional treatment has always been medical management and, inevitably, surgical bypass, even amputation. Stents have had a significantly high impact on endoluminal treatment outcomes by preventing injury to the lumen, reducing the potential for hyperplasia and restenosis, as well as the likelihood of plaque disruption and embolization. This second edition brings together a combination of all the current evidence-based information with personal experience and is presented by a team of distinguished operators.
"…I enjoyed this updated edition….It is practical, easy to read, and serves as an excellent introduction to the world of endovascular intervention. It contains many useful tips on endovascular interventions from experienced authors."
"…Data on indications and clinical trials is rapidly accumulating. Much of this data is to be found in this well illustrated book….The book is highly recommended for interventional cardiologists and radiologists working in this field."
