Field of medicine: Vascular disease.
Format: Hardcover book.
Audience: Internists and clinical researchers who want to improve their knowledge of arterial occlusive disease.
Purpose: To review the epidemiology, diagnosis, and most up-to-date treatment of arterial occlusive disease.
Content: The book is divided into 19 chapters. The first 14 chapters focus on prevalence, natural history, and treatment options for patients with atherosclerosis of the abdominal aorta and arteries of the lower extremities, the most common form of arterial occlusive disease. One chapter is devoted to newer options for radiologic imaging in patients with arterial insufficiency. Another chapter focuses on the role of angiogenesis and gene therapy for the management of critical arterial occlusive disease. The remaining 5 chapters discuss the manifestations of arterial insufficiency in unique populations and the other forms of vascular insufficiency (for example, giant-cell arteritis).
