Venous Disorders: Current Concepts
Venous disorders are extremely common in clinical practice, and recent years have seen a number of changes in the treatment of these conditions.
This book covers the advances in our understanding and the management of venous disorders – both superficial and deep. It includes up-to-date reviews on the hemodynamics of venous circulation in the lower limbs, deep venous reflux, novel biomarkers in deep vein thrombosis, post thrombotic syndrome, infra-popliteal DVT, relevance of wave length in laser treatment of varicose veins, pelvic congestion syndrome, May-Thurner syndrome, nut cracker syndrome, endothermal heat-induced thrombosis, recurrent varicose veins, and venous trauma. It also discusses important topics such as one-stop vein clinics, alternatives for venous ulcer treatment, venous anatomy, therapeutic options in lymphedema, nerve damage during endovenous thermal ablation, newer oral anticoagulants, compression therapy for venous ulcer, sclerotherapy for varicose veins and thrombolysis for DVT.
Endovascular Interventions 1st Edition
This book provides medical professionals (vascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists, interventional radiologists, endovascular neurologists, vascular medicine specialists) with a reference guide to the most common and accepted approach to endovascular management of peripheral vascular disease. It also addresses urgent interventions in the acute setting of the various vascular beds, and covers emerging areas such as stroke intervention and endovascular treatment of pulmonary embolism and vascular trauma.
Edited by a multidisciplinary team, Endovascular Interventions offers in-depth coverage of the field in seven parts: Overview; Supra-Aortic Intervention in High Risk Patients: Innominate, Subclavian, Carotid, Vertebral and Intracranial Interventions; Interventions of the Aorta; Renal and Mesenteric Interventions; Lower Extremity Interventions; Venous Disease; and Vascular Trauma. Each section covers the technical aspects of the procedures as well as the fundamental clinical aspects which are necessary in the evaluation of patients considered for interventions. Chapters feature illustrations, case studies, key learning points, equipment lists, and sample questions and answers which can be used for Board exam practice.

Endovascular Interventions is an excellent review book for all practicing and aspiring vascular and endovascular specialists.
Vascular and Endovascular Controversies Update
Selected chapters are found under the clear sections of the book: Controversies —Acute Stroke—Thoracic Aortic—Abdominal Aortic—Peripheral Arterial Ischaemia—Venous and Lymphatic. The book is certainly up to date as it was written before the chapters were spoken to a large audience at the 40th celebration of the Charing Cross International Symposium to take place in Olympia Grand in the west of London.
It is hard to focus on particular high spots. Acute Stroke Controversies include the CCSVI appraisal by Lindsay Machan. In this chapter, essentially, Machan and his co-author dispel the concept that this intervention affects the natural history of the underlying condition.
Endovascular Surgery and Devices
This book provides a systematic description of fundamental knowledge, application methods, and management issues about the clinical application of endovascular surgery and device. It is organized as the three parts. Part 1 introduces the development background of endovascular device and its knowledge hierarchy, and gives an overview on classification, structure, shape, and characteristics of the above device. Part 2 is based on a large number of clinical practices. It firstly summarizes the basic operation skills and conventional methods of endovascular device, and then exemplifies the application scheme of special device for complex cases. Part 3 discusses the management theory and methods of endovascular device in clinical application, puts forward the agile supply chain management model and autonomous intelligent decision-making method of device supply and cooperation management for clinical surgery, and designs its managerial system and guides.
This book provides comprehensive and professional knowledge, advanced theory, and referential methods for clinical application and management of endovascular surgery and device. It is a useful guide for the clinical practice in specialized study and professional training in endovascular surgery, and provides the methods of neuro-management and smart medical service for patients.
Vessel Health and Preservation: The Right Approach for Vascular Access
This Open access book offers updated and revised information on vessel health and preservation (VHP), a model concept first published in poster form in 2008 and in JVA in 2012, which has received a great deal of attention, especially in the US, UK and Australia.
The book presents a model and a new way of thinking applied to vascular access and administration of intravenous treatment, and shows how establishing and maintaining a route of access to the bloodstream is essential for patients in acute care today. Until now, little thought has been given to an intentional process to guide selection, insertion and management of vascular access devices (VADs) and by default actions are based on crisis management when a quickly selected VAD fails. The book details how VHP establishes a framework or pathway model for each step of the patient experience, intentionally guiding, improving and eliminating risk when possible. The evidence points to the fact that reducing fragmentation, establishing a pathway, and teaching the process to all stakeholders reduces complications with intravenous therapy, improves efficiency and diminishes cost. As such this book appeals to bedside nurses, physicians and other health professionals.
Vascular Surgery: Cases, Questions and Commentaries 4th ed
This updated volume acknowledges new data and techniques in the area of vascular surgery. New chapters have been added and previous chapters have been updated to cover recent developments in vascular and endovascular surgery.
The book aims to bring together a unique collection of real life cases that highlight the diversity of problems encountered in vascular surgery.
This book is written along evidence based medicine principles and will be relevant to vascular practitioners, as well as medical trainees.
Rich’s Vascular Trauma 3rd Edition
Published in association with the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS), the newly updated edition of Rich’s Vascular Trauma draws on civilian and military authorities from around the world to offer comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the management of vascular injury. Anatomic patterns of vascular trauma including extremity, torso and cervical injury are reviewed in detail, including the latest techniques to manage non-compressible torso hemorrhage. You’ll have access to all of the current innovations across the broad spectrum of vascular trauma, presented in a well-organized fashion that allows you to quickly hone-in on the most important issues in patient care and management.
“…This new International Perspectives section provides a mix of personal and regional experiences from surgeons whose partnership in the management of vascular trauma was and will continue to be highly valued…” Foreword by: Norman M. Rich, June 2015
This book offers a systematic introduction to Budd-Chiari syndrome, a rare but life-threatening vascular disorder of the liver, which refers to obstructions at any site from the hepatic veins to the suprahepatic inferior vena cava. The book mainly covers the history, epidemiology, etiology and risk factors, pathology, diagnosis, pharmacological and interventional aspects, surgical treatment, etiological treatment, and prognostic assessment of Budd-Chiari syndrome. Notably, it also presents cutting-edge research findings in this field. The early diagnosis of Budd-Chiari syndrome is vital, as it allows clinicians to pursue more targeted and effective treatment strategies, thus improving patient outcomes. However, much information, including the latest advances, has not yet been fully disseminated in current clinical practice. This book addresses that gap, helping physicians to improve diagnosis and establish standard treatment strategies, helping researchers conduct clinical and experimental studies, and even helping patients and their relatives to recognize this disease.
Difficult Decisions in Vascular Surgery: An Evidence-Based Approach
This book looks at specific vascular surgery questions that have arisen and where careful analysis is given according to the level of supporting evidence available. As new technology is introduced to treat the cardiovascular system, alternative therapies begin to challenge and also complement traditional vascular surgery. All chapters contain the PICO table to summarise specific characteristics relative to the questions posed in each chapter.
Difficult Decisions in Vascular Surgery- An Evidence-Based Approach is a current and timely reference source for practicing surgeons, surgeons in training, and educators, that describes the recommended ideal approach, rather than customary care, in selected clinical situations.
