Description

Recognized experts comprehensively review the clinical, surgical, radiological, and scientific aspects of atherosclerotic peripheral arterial disease (PAD), including endovascular, gene, and drug therapies. In their far-ranging discussions, the authors examine in depth the risk factors and antiplatelet therapies for PAD patients at high risk for suffering a heart attack and/or and stroke, the question of exercise rehabilitation, the surgical approaches to revascularization, and the preoperative evaluation and perioperative management of the vascular patient. Completing this detailed overview is important information on ameliorating the risk factors for PAD, its pathogenesis and epidemiology, and the physiological and pathophysiological basis of available diagnostic tests.show more

Review quote

"This comprehensive textbook has a number of strengths. The editors have assembled as contributors a team of experts who emphasize the analysis of primary data from key studies in the field and who provide thorough reference lists...readers will also find valuable chapters on subjects that are rarely seen elsewhere, such as the one on arterial vascular disease in women...Peripheral Arterial Disease is an outstanding text book...On the bookshelves of scientists and clinicians in related disciplines and in multidisciplinary teams, this book will provide a state-of-the-art review of current knowledge of peripheral arterial disease, and it will undoubtedly remain an excellent reference for some years to come. "- The NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL of MEDICINE "Information on the use of exercise rehabilitation for intermittent claudication is useful and extremely important for primary care physicians." -Annals of Internal Medicine "The thrust of this book is that most treatments are limited and the overall emphasis is on prevention and management of all risk factors. This is a good book that brings together all of the available information in a readily accessible format." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal "...a comprehensive and useful review on peripheral arterial disease." - Acta Cardiologicashow more

Back cover copy

Although peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is often unrecognized or neglected by physicians, it affects twenty percent of older persons, causes considerable disability-including loss of limbs-and is an indicator of similar disease in the heart and other blood vessels. In Peripheral Arterial Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment, a panel of recognized experts comprehensively reviews the clinical, surgical, radiological, and scientific aspects of atheroscleotic peripheral arterial disease (PAD), large vessel vasculitis, and thromboangiitis, including endovascular, gene, and drug therapies. In their far-ranging discussions, the authors examine in depth the risk factors and antiplatelet therapies for PAD patients in danger of a heart attack and/or stroke, the important role of exercise rehabilitation, the surgical and catheter-based approaches to revascularization, the preoperative evaluation, and the perioperative management of the vascular patient. They also discuss the special problems of peripheral arterial disease in women, management of the diabetic foot, large vessel vasculitis, thromboangiitis obliterans, and atheroembolism. Completing this detailed overview is important information on ameliorating the risk factors for PAD, its pathogenesis and epidemiology, and the physiological and pathophysiological basis of available diagnostic tests. Authoritative and comprehensive, Peripheral Arterial Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment provides a detailed accounting of the medical, surgical, and radiological aspects of peripheral arterial obstructive disease, empowering today's clinicians and specialists with the knowledge and skills necessary to diagnose and treat this important but often overlooked disorder.show more
