9781588290526: Peripheral Arterial Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment (Contemporary Cardiology)

Recognized experts comprehensively review the clinical, surgical, radiological, and scientific aspects of atherosclerotic peripheral arterial disease (PAD), 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 at high risk for suffering a heart attack and/or and stroke, the question of exercise rehabilitation, the surgical approaches to revascularization, and the preoperative evaluation and perioperative management of the vascular patient. 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.

From the Back Cover:

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.

From The New England Journal of Medicine:

Peripheral arterial disease and its associated mortality are increasing worldwide. Although bench and bedside research have been widely neglected and the disorder is often overlooked, interest in peripheral arterial disease is growing rapidly. Peripheral Arterial Disease supports this interest by pointing the way toward less invasive procedures that can be used to diagnose and treat this disease. "Noninvasive and endovascular approaches first" is the fiber that 27 well-known authors have threaded through 19 chapters covering the most important aspects of peripheral arterial disease. Chapters on the causes, epidemiology, pathology, pathogenesis, and natural history of peripheral arterial disease are followed by chapters on clinical aspects, diagnosis, and the management of the disease, as well as discussions of risk factors associated with treatment. The book also includes chapters on the special aspects of peripheral arterial disease in women and in patients with diabetic foot disease or vasculitis. The focus is clearly on peripheral arterial disease, since neither central and peripheral aneurysmal disease nor cerebrovascular and supra-aortic arterial disorders are covered adequately. The prevention of myocardial and cerebrovascular events and the use of antiplatelet therapy, on the other hand, receive extensive attention. The excellent disquisition on exercise rehabilitation, which is the most effective conservative treatment of peripheral arterial disease, is exemplary. This comprehensive textbook has a number of strengths. The editors have assembled as contributors a team of experts who emphasize the analysis of primary data from key studies in the field and who provide thorough reference lists. Besides chapters that deal with material that has already been presented in a number of books, readers will also find valuable chapters on subjects that are rarely seen elsewhere, such as the one on arterial vascular disease in women. Nearly every aspect of peripheral arterial disease is covered, providing a comprehensive overview but with the disadvantage of occasional superficiality in the chapters dealing with well-known modes of treatment. This blemish, however, can easily be overlooked in a readable book limited to just over 350 pages, and it is generously compensated for by the extensive discussion of emerging endovascular, genetic, angiogenic, and drug therapies for peripheral arterial disease. A small but sufficient number of well-labeled figures throughout the book facilitate comprehension. The book is dedicated to two distinguished vascular specialists who died last year. The chapters by these expert clinicians and investigators are the highlights of the book. Gene Strandness, of the University of Washington, developed diagnostic ultrasonographic techniques, and his chapter on arterial hemodynamics rests on a lifetime commitment to work in this area. He designed the first electric analogue model of the peripheral circulation, which is a great teaching tool. The book is also dedicated to Jeff Isner of Boston, who pioneered clinical applications of gene therapy. Peripheral Arterial Disease is an outstanding textbook -- less so for specialists, but all the more an excellent reference for students, residents, and general practitioners. On the bookshelves of scientists and clinicians in related disciplines and in multidisciplinary teams, this book will provide a state-of-the-art review of current knowledge of peripheral arterial disease, and it will undoubtedly remain an excellent reference for some years to come.
