Peripheral Endovascular Interventionsby Thomas J. Fogarty (Editor), Rodney A. White (Editor)
Peripheral Endovascular Interventions presents the state-of-the-art in endovascular surgical technology and applications. New developments now allow the vascular surgeon to facilitate treatment of remote vascular disease via a peripheral puncture site and the editors, renowned endovascular pioneers Dr. Rodney A. White and Dr. Thomas Fogarty, have put together the primary text on all aspects of endovascular techniques in the vascular or general surgery practice. Forty chapters bring together an internationally renown group of contributors to discuss the components of an endovascular practice, facilities and equipment for endovascular intervention, endovascular instrumentation and devices, and specialized endovascular techniques. New to this edition are chapters detailing recent advances in brachiocephalic, renal and cerebral vascular angioplasty, endovascular prostheses, and a section dealing with the treatment of complications. Approximately 500 illustrations, including 50 in color, round out the text. Peripheral Endovascular Interventions is a must have, cutting edge compendium for all vascular surgeons and trainees as well as for practicing general surgeons.
Description: This book is a comprehensive review of the rapidly advancing field of endovascular therapy, written by internationally recognized authorities in the field, many of whom are the innovators of the techniques and devices involved. Broad in scope, topics covered range from how to obtain training in approved endovascular techniques to promising new lines of investigational therapies. Reflecting the operative nature of many of the new endovascular therapies, this book is somewhat unique for an endovascular text in the strong representation of surgeons among its authors.
Purpose: The purpose is to train and update physicians with diverse levels of experience and from a variety of specialties in established, new, and still evolving endovascular techniques. Given the wide variation in expertise among different specialties interested in performing these procedures, and acknowledging that different specialties lack skill in different aspects of various procedures, a book such as this is badly needed. The goals are accomplished by providing broad overviews of the basics for those with little experience and in-depth presentations of advanced topics for more skilled physicians.
Audience: The audience includes vascular surgeons, who will take particular interest in the coverage of endovascular equipment and basic percutaneous techniques, and interventional cardiologists and radiologists, who have had little previous exposure to the operative aspects of endovascular therapy discussed in detail in this book.
Features: This book contains comprehensive coverage of such basics as endovascular training and credentialing, anesthesia and monitoring for endovascular procedures, postintervention surveillance, and radiation safety. Extensive reviews of presently approved and investigational endovascular techniques are supplemented with numerous detailed illustrations, radiographs, and photographs. The information provided is current and pertinent, as are the abundant references.
Assessment: This outstanding book provides comprehensive up-to-date coverage of approved and investigational peripheral endovascular interventions, written by recognized authorities and innovators in the field. All those involved in the treatment of patients with peripheral vascular disease will want this reference on their shelf.
