Peripheral Vascular Disease

Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) affects more than 30 million people worldwide, most often individuals over age 65. Despite this, PVD remains a disease with which many clinicians are unfamiliar. Peripheral Vascular Disease helps medical professionals of different backgrounds and training apply resources adequately to benefit individual patients. The authors provide a description of relevant vascular anatomy and pathophysiology, a focused review of diagnostic modalities used in screening for PVD, and contemporary medical and interventional treatments used for PVD. Generous use of bullet points, condensed tables, high-quality figures, and diagrams facilitate easy comprehension of a multifaceted and serious condition.

Peripheral Arterial Disease Handbook

Approximately eight to twelve million individuals in the United States are affected by peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Thus this disease is common and well represented in nearly all adult medical practices. Peripheral arterial diseases include diverse clinical entities that encompass atherosclerotic, aneurysmal, vasospastic, and inflammatory disorders that affect the arteries. The Peripheral Arterial Disease Handbook presents a unique compendium of evidenced-based and expert approaches for the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral arterial diseases, written for all practitioners who care for adults with these disorders. This comprehensive, easy-to-use book presents both epidemiological and pathophysiological data in succinct form, along with a practical clinical review of the diagnosis and treatment of the most important areas of peripheral arterial disease care.

Diabetes and Peripheral Vascular Disease

Students, residents, and fellows in surgical and medical specialties should also find this book of significant value and interest.

Diabetes and Peripheral Vascular Disease

In Diabetes and Peripheral Vascular Disease, a panel of distinguished leaders in the field of medicine, podiatry, and vascular and endovascular therapy assimilate the latest literature on these issues and others for an in-depth review of the management of peripheral vascular disease. Providing an overview of the management of diabetes and diabetic foot changes as well as providing a view of cutting-edge and emerging topics in optimization of arterial status, this important title addresses pathophysiology, anatomy, diagnosis and management of diabetic peripheral vascular disease, emphasizing a multi-disciplinary approach. The first chapter of the book provides an overview of this complex disease process and discusses the teamwork required for optimal management. The chapters continue with the basic pathophysiology of diabetic atherosclerosis and a contemporary review of the management of diabetes. The genesis of diabetic foot ulceration and prevention and management strategies is covered, as is the effects of neuropathy and microvascular changes in the diabetic foot. In addition, Diabetes and Peripheral Vascular Disease covers the microbiology of diabetic foot infections, the role of endovascular interventions and vascular surgery as well as the management of the complications of these procedures, the process of amputation for those patients who have progressed beyond a limb salvage situation, and the effects of diabetes on the cerebrovascular system as well as its implications in patients with aortoiliac disease. An invaluable addition to the literature on diabetes and peripheral vascular disease, the book will be of great interest internists, family practitioners, surgeons, podiatrists, wound care specialists, and vascular specialists. Students, residents, and fellows in surgical and medical specialties should also find this book of significant value and interest.

Angiography and Endovascular Therapy for Peripheral Artery Disease

Peripheral Arterial Disease

Recognized experts comprehensively review the clinical, surgical, radiological, and scientific aspects of athero-sclerotic peripheral arterial disease (PAD), including endovascular, gene, and drug therapies.

Peripheral Arterial Disease

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.

Lower Extremity Arterial Disease

A comprehensive review the state-of-the-art in atherosclerosis of the arteries of the legs and feet. The authors discuss in detail the primary symptom-claudication-an intermittent pain in the leg or foot while walking, its predisposing factors, the current diagnostic methodologies, the impressive advances in the therapeutic armamentarium, and the need to screen for co-existing coronary artery disease. Additional chapters describe cutting-edge noninvasive angiography and vascular flow studies, specific drug therapy for claudication, regression of atherosclerosis therapy, gene therapy, and drug eluting stents for peripheral arterial disease. The authors also examine the epidemiology of LEAD, the effects of smoking and effective smoking cessation programs, its pathogenesis and its association with lipid abnormalities and hypertension, aggressive risk factor modification, and the need to measure the ankle brachial index of every patient over 45.

Imaging in Peripheral Arterial Disease

​This book presents up-to-date information on clinical and research applications of imaging in peripheral arterial disease (PAD). It provides high-quality images useful not only in the diagnosis of PAD but also for use in clinical trials aimed at the development of novel therapies such as angiogenic agents and stem cells. The book begins with coverage of the applications of the four major imaging modalities in a clinical setting: ultrasound, computed tomography angiography (CTA), magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), and digital subtraction angiography (DSA). It also discusses the ankle brachial index (ABI) as a screening technique to establish the presence of PAD. Subsequent chapters focus on the advantages and limitations of various research applications of imaging in PAD including contrast ultrasound for measuring perfusion; MRI for assessing perfusion, energetics, plaque volume, and characteristics; and radionuclide imaging for perfusion and inflammation. Imaging in Peripheral Arterial Disease: Clinical and Research Applications is an essential resource for physicians, researchers, residents, and fellows in cardiology, radiology, imaging, nuclear medicine, diagnostic radiology, and vascular surgery.
