A Doody's Core Title!

"...especially welcome...One of the many aspects that make this text a wonderful contribution to the literature and deserving of a place in any clinician's library is its comprehensiveness....the diverse backgrounds of the authors contribute to its unique and comprehensive perspective. Peripheral Arterial Disease contains practical information on common disease entities that confront practitioners, as well as insight into the rarer entities that frequently require textbook consultation."--JAMA

It is well written and edited, comprehensive, and very up to date. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service
