Current methods of diagnosis and treatment in the specialty of angiology

Vascular Medicine, Second Edition presents the current methods of diagnosis and treatment across the entire specialty of angiology, providing clear guidance on vascular medicine from well-known specialists. Updates include coverage of recent advances in endovascular therapy, an introductory anatomy section in each chapter, and a detailed duplex ultrasonography section for every vascular region. This new edition also contains chapters on the increasingly important areas of acute stroke treatment and renal sympathectomy, each written by leading experts in those treatment methods.

Key Features:

  • Focuses on the medical as well as the surgical aspects of angiology
  • Complete coverage of all three treatment options: conservative treatment, endovascular therapy, and surgery
  • Interdisciplinary approach that includes outpatient medicine, vascular medicine, cardiology, and radiology

All medical specialists involved in vascular medicine, as well as interventional specialists and vascular surgeons, will find this book to be an invaluable reference throughout their careers.
