Vascular Surgery for Lawyers

Front Cover
Cavendish Publishing, Dec 16, 1998 - Law - 152 pages
The vascular system is important for maintaining the body's integrity and disorders such as thrombosis and embolism can have dire consequences. A volume on this subject is essential for anyone involved in litigating claims relating to blood clotting disorders, gangrene or malformations of the arteries or veins. Different chapters focus on different aspects of the presentation, investigation and treatment of arterial and venous disease, as well as providing an introduction to the circulatory system. The book's many illustrations provide an aid to understanding the medical procedures described, while, in the appendices, are contained both a guide to the medico-legal assessment of vascular patients and a helpful glossary of terms. Throughout the book, descriptions of actual cases indicate the ways in which vascular disease and the law interact in a medico-legal context.
