Peripheral Vascular Disease for Cardiologists: A Clinical Approach (1405103663) cover image
Cardiologists today must have adequate basic training in vascular medicine in order to care for patients with peripheral vascular diseases. However, the topic of peripheral vascular disease has been inadequately addressed in most training programs, and particularly in the literature directed toward cardiologists. This text, the first of its kind, is intended to broaden their knowledge base and clinical skills in the recognition and management of the common peripheral vascular disorders occuring in cardiovascular practice.

Peripheral Vascular Disease for Cardiologists will provide a practical, clinical framework rather than using the usual textbook format, hence fitting effectively within training programs in cardiology and internal medicine.
