Vascular Surgery: Therapeutic Strategies brings together the best, current strategies for therapeutic and clinical practices.

This text is a manual for survival in the new healthcare environment, providing a comprehensive exploration of vascular treatment options. Vascular Surgery: Therapeutic Strategy reviews all of the pertinent vascular beds, including the carotid arteries, thoracic outlet, upper extremity, abdominal and thoracic aortas, and the venous system.

Additionally, the authors guide readers to a new level of understanding of the rationale for healthcare changes and how vascular surgeons can best position their practices to meet the challenges and demands of this new era, including coverage of new endovascular technologies and how they should be best applied.

The authors are nationally and internationally renowned experts in their areas and frequent speakers at international conferences. Together their recent publications have changed clinical practice.

Key Features
  • Examines the treatment options for carotid artery disease (stenting vs. surgery)
  • Provides the latest information on treatment modalities for lower extremity ischemia
  • Describes assessment and treatment approaches to diabetic patients with lower extremity complications
  • Summarizes the advancements in the treatment of arterial injuries
  • Evaluates muscle nerve dysfunction problems associated with peripheral arterial disease
  • Reviews the evidence base endovascular therapy for lower extremity arterial disease
  • Explains the current recommendations for AV access in chronic renal failure
