Overview

This atlas details the vascular anatomy seen on angiographic images and in the new imaging modalities. The book presents the complete anatomy of the arteries, veins, and lymphatic system by body region. Full-color drawings are correlated with angiographic images to guide evaluation and management of vascular disease and performance of endovascular procedures.

For this Second Edition, Dr. Uflacker has added more than 100 pictures and extensively reviewed the anatomical description of the vascular system. He has expanded the cardiac chapter with new CTA and MRI images, added percutaneous access where needed, and expanded the coverage of lower extremity anatomy.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

John H. Whiting
This is a compilation of predominantly angiographic images, correlated with appropriate conventional illustrations and supplemented with images from other modalities such as ultrasound, CT, and MR imaging. Combined with brief written explanations, the atlas functions as a complete, easily accessed, practical reference for the evaluation of vascular anatomy and disease. The book is intended for vascular and interventional radiologists, surgeons, cardiologists, medical students and residents, and fellows in radiology and surgery. The scope and nature of the book also seems appropriate for graduate and undergraduate students of anatomy. Images are appropriate with complete coverage of pertinent anatomy. Image quality is high and figures are displayed in an uncluttered format. Individual topics are followed by a sequence of correlated illustrations, making any subject readily accessible to the reader. This is an excellent, complete atlas of vascular anatomy displayed in the modality most often used to study it. The high-quality illustrations and the user-firendly organization make for quick reference and review. Supplemental illustrations and occasional images of pertinent anatomy from other imaging modalities are succinct and clear, allowing for quick and complete understanding of a potentially complex subject. Overall, this is a practical working person's atlas.

A practical reference for those involved with anatomy, diagnosis, and treatment of vascular diseases. Provides photographs of real angiographic cases and fine art color illustrations to facilitate study of the details and spatial disposition of anatomic vascular structures, as well as some of the variations encountered. All the vascular territories are covered, and correlation with function and other critical anatomical structures related to the clinical and surgical application of vascular anatomy is presented when pertinent.
