Completely revised by a team of new authors with expertise in endovascular procedures, this handbook is a quick reference for the effective treatment of patients with common arterial and venous diseases. In concise outline format, the book covers all major vascular disorders, including peripheral vascular diseases, and emphasizes patient management issues rather than step-by-step surgical procedures.
This Fifth Edition covers common endovascular procedures and their preoperative and postoperative management issues. A major section provides disease-specific care outlines for various vascular disease categories, with references to the contemporary literature. From diagnosis to follow-up, each chapter includes indications for therapy, periprocedural management, and valuable tips on avoiding and managing potential complications.
