Summary and Info
Structural and functional abnormalities of arteries and veins manifest clinically in a broad spectrum of disorders, including aneurysmal disease, atherosclerosis, vasculitis, venous insufficiency, microvascular complications, thrombo-embolism and lower limb ulceration. Many of these are common and/or chronic conditions which present for initial assessment by primary health care workers. This new edition is a practical guide to the most commonly presenting disorders, and provides a structured approach to clinical assessment, investigations and management. The last few years have seen major changes in the use of non-invasive or minimally-invasive techniques, e.g wider use of CT and MR angiography, and increasing use of percutaneous interventions for carotid, lower limb and reno-vascular disease. The ABC of Arterial and Venous Disease (Second Edition) explains the underlying technology and the applications of new minimally-invasive methods, especially CT and MRI, and provides an up-dated, evidence-based guide to the modern day management of patients with common, life-threatening diseases involving different parts of the circulation.This authoritative, full-colour, illustrated ABC is an ideal reference for the primary care, non-specialist practitioner to base effective management and prevention programmes.
