Endovascular Therapy: Principles of Peripheral Interventions




If you are one of the many physicians from different specialty disciplines who perform endovascular interventions then this practical reference will help you to develop your endovascular skills and encompass them into daily practice.

Endovascular Therapy covers everything you need to know about creating an endovascular program, such as imaging, catheter and device inventory, nursing support, and technician support.

In addition, this book provides a basic knowledge of the pathophysiology of vascular disease, interventional techniques, and endovascular modalities of various disease categories. Each individual disease and endovascular therapy is discussed and emphasis is placed on the relevant complications associated with the wide spectrum of endovascular interventions.

Also included are step-by-step guides to procedure conduct, tips and tricks, procedure specific equipment lists, and recommended post procedure orders and follow up.
