Understanding tibio-peroneal occlusive disease and its management is vital in treating patients with peripheral vascular disease. Occlusive disease and the resulting ischemia threaten the viability of the lower limb, particularly in diabetics.

Edited by widely-respected vascular surgeon Anton N. Sidawy, this textbook explores all aspects of tibio-peroneal disease, including pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment, and management of the lower extremity after adequate circulation is restored. It examines risk factors, disease distribution, and general management issues connected with diabetic patients, as well as adjuvant chemotherapy to improve patency of prosthetic bypasses, thrombolytic therapy for failed bypasses, wound healing, and amputations of the foot and leg.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Samer F Najjar, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is the most comprehensive book on the management of diabetic foot and limb salvage. It discuses the multimodal approaches necessary for successful outcomes in patients with diabetic foot infections. The editor has assembled an excellent group of authors who are all expert surgeons with many contributions to the concept of limb salvage.
Purpose: The purpose is to present an updated overview of the modern methods used in the diagnosis and management of the diabetic foot and limb salvage. The authors have accomplished this goal in a concise and instructive manner.
Audience: This book is principally aimed at trainees and practicing vascular and podiatric surgeons who will undoubtedly encounter an increasing volume of diabetic patients.
Features: The topics vary from diabetic neuropathy to operative management of foot infections to vein patch construction. There is also a very relevant and timely chapter on infrainguinal angioplasty in diabetics. The book does an excellent job of addressing many important concepts by including ample diagrams and images. Many of these topics are very important to the everyday practicing surgeon considering the sheer volume of diabetic patients one encounters.
Assessment: I enjoyed this book very much. It fills a very important knowledge gap in the management of a large segment of a typical vascular surgeon's patient load. Most other books dedicate merely a single page to this vital topic. This book has been needed for many years and will serve as a valuable reference as it covers all aspects of the topic in an excellent fashion. It should be required reading for all vascular surgeons dedicated to the concept and practice of limb salvage.
