1 Review

Written by cardiologists and subspecialists who treat peripheral vascular problems, this text provides quick and practical guidance on the diagnosis and management of peripheral vascular disease (PVD). Coverage begins with anatomy, etiology, signs and symptoms, and risk factors and proceeds to medical therapy, noninvasive and invasive diagnosis, interventional therapy, and surgical treatment. The book includes sections on training of cardiovascular fellows, residents, and house staff; venous disease; systemic manifestations of PVD; the economic impact of PVD; and billing and coding.
