Surgical Techniques in Moyamoya Vasculopathy: Tricks of the Trade
When the rare stroke strikes in children and youth, a likely cause is the idiopathic disease moyamoya, characterized by the slow and progressive stenosis and occlusion of the internal carotid artery and the arteries of the circle of Willis. A result of these stenoses is the formation of collaterals that are typically small and fragile, and liable to rupture.
While there is no cure for moyamoya, a variety of surgical procedures can be performed to re-establish and maintain adequate blood supply to the affected brain areas. The procedures described here include various revascularization techniques and recommended bypasses.

The diagnosis and management of venous disorders is a core competency of interventional radiology, comprising up to 75% of an interventional radiologist’s caseload in some institutions. Venous Interventional Radiology by prominent interventional radiologist Laura Findeiss and an impressive group of contributors is a highly practical vascular interventional radiology reference that covers a full spectrum of venous disease. The richly illustrated book starts with an opening chapter on venous anatomy, physiology, and epidemiology.
Disease-specific chapters cover common to complex disorders, from varicose veins and venous ulceration, to thromboembolic disease and pulmonary embolism. Each chapter presents the latest minimally invasive image-guided interventions for the diagnosis and management of a specific disease. Clinical cases provide discussion of patient presentation/symptoms, clinical evaluation, procedural and non-invasive management strategies, and follow-up, all of which are key to delivering comprehensive patient care.

Stem Cell Therapy for Vascular Diseases
Vascular diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide. Distinguished clinical and surgical approaches have attempted to overcome its morbidity and mortality; still 17.9 million people die every year due to vascular affections.
Stem cell therapy has emerged as a promising therapeutic strategy. Stem cells synthesize and secrete cytokines that promote cell recruitment, immunomodulation, extracellular matrix remodeling, angiogenesis, and neuroregeneration, all of which promote regeneration. Besides that, stem cells are also capable of differentiating in various cell types, being employed in tissue engineering.

Preclinical and clinical investigations have reported efficacy of stem cell therapy for various vascular diseases. Even though results are encouraging, the studies demonstrate variation in stem cell type and origin, route and protocol for administration, and concomitant use of other treatment strategies, impairing easy interpretation of results and clinical application.
The purpose of this book is to compile and comprise the current state of the evidence regarding stem cell therapy for each vascular disease, elucidating possible clinical applications. More than an objective guide for readers on the use of this novel treatment strategy, this publication will advocate for stem cell therapy use and development and will be of significant interest to physicians in a wide range of disciplines as well as researchers.
Textbook of Vascular Medicine
This textbook focuses on the vascular biology and physiology that underlie vascular disorders in clinical medicine. Vascular biomedicine is a rapidly growing field as new molecular mechanisms of vascular health and disease are unraveled. Many of the major cardiovascular diseases including coronary artery disease, heart failure, stroke and vascular dementia are diseases of the vasculature. In addition vascular injury underpins conditions like kidney failure and cardiovascular complications of diabetes. This field is truly multidisciplinary involving scientists in many domains such as molecular and vascular biology, cardiovascular physiology and pharmacology and immunology and inflammation. Clinically, specialists across multiple disciplines are involved in the management of patients with vascular disorders, including cardiologists, nephrologists, endocrinologists, neurologists and vascular surgeons.
