Vascular Surgery: Current Questions discusses the queries concerning modes of therapy, surgical practices, and management of vascular problems.
This book contains 19 chapters and begins with an overview of the clinical vascular laboratory. The succeeding chapters deal with the risk factors in peripheral vascular disease and the pragmatic viewpoint of carotid body tumors and carotid endarterectomy. Considerable chapters are devoted to several surgical options and practices for specific vascular disease management. Other chapters discuss the challenges in prevention of vascular surgical sepsis, treatment for diabetic foot, and amputation. The final chapters describe the clinical features and therapeutic management of chronic venous insufficiency and deep vein thrombosis.
This book will prove useful to consultants and trainee vascular and general surgeons and other specialists who share in the overall management of patients with vascular problems.
