Overview

A comprehensive discussion of vascular problems in the lower extremity, including evaluation and management of surgical and non-surgical procedures. The text begins with an examination of the general principles of arterial and venous hemodynamics and continues with current positions on issues such as thrombosis and thrombolysis, aneurysms and aneurysm repair, and arterial and venous occlusive diseases.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lewis Schwartz, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This book is devoted to the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, evaluation, and treatment of diseases of the arteries and veins of the legs. It is edited by a recognized authority in vascular surgery and one of the world's experts on thrombolytic therapy. Each of its 30 chapters is illustrated with complete reference listings.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a relatively compact, readable, and up-to-date source that provides comprehensive coverage of lower extremity vascular pathology. This lofty goal is the purpose of many textbooks of vascular surgery but most appropriate many volumes and thousands of pages for its accomplishment. This book is indeed readable without extensive reference to basic science data or results of animal experimentation.
Audience: The target audience includes all practitioners involved in the care of patients with arterial and venous disease, including vascular and cardiovascular surgeons, orthopedic and podiatric surgeons, cardiologists, interventional radiologists, internists, endocrinologists, and nephrologists. In addition, the book would be a useful reference manual for medical and surgical residents, medial students, and vascular technicians.
Features: The book features five sections: general principles, aneurysmal disease, lower extremity arterial occlusive disease, thrombosis, and lower extremity venous disease. The most illustrative by far is the discussion of thrombolytic therapy as the editor has recruited the leaders in the field to contribute the most recent data regarding thrombolysis for arterial, venous, and vein graft occlusion. The section on lower extremity arterial disease is also quite complete although vascular surgeons would be wise to consult other texts)ft and atlases for more detailed illustration. The section on aneurysmal disease is somewhat displaced in a text devoted to the lower extremities. The section covering venous disease is well written, although a discussion of phlegmasia cerulea dolens cannot be found even though one is promised in the preface.
Assessment: In summary, this is a valuable reference manual for students and practitioners involved in the care of these difficult patients. Its compact and simple character makes several complex topics readily accessible and understandable.
