Although peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is often unrecognized or neglected by physicians, it affects twenty percent of older persons, causes considerable disability-including loss of limbs-and is an indicator of similar disease in the heart and other blood vessels. In Peripheral Arterial Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment, a panel of recognized experts comprehensively reviews the clinical, surgical, radiological, and scientific aspects of atheroscleotic peripheral arterial disease (PAD), large vessel vasculitis, and thromboangiitis, including endovascular, gene, and drug therapies. In their far-ranging discussions, the authors examine in depth the risk factors and antiplatelet therapies for PAD patients in danger of a heart attack and/or stroke, the important role of exercise rehabilitation, the surgical and catheter-based approaches to revascularization, the preoperative evaluation, and the perioperative management of the vascular patient. They also discuss the special problems of peripheral arterial disease in women, management of the diabetic foot, large vessel vasculitis, thromboangiitis obliterans, and atheroembolism. Completing this detailed overview is important information on ameliorating the risk factors for PAD, its pathogenesis and epidemiology, and the physiological and pathophysiological basis of available diagnostic tests. Authoritative and comprehensive, Peripheral Arterial Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment provides a detailed accounting of the medical, surgical, and radiological aspects of peripheral arterial obstructive disease, empowering today's clinicians and specialists with the knowledge and skills necessary to diagnose and treat this important but often overlooked disorder
