"This comprehensive, evidence-based account of the current mechanisms and pathogenesis of many common clinical entities resulting in vascular diseases details the established and novel interventions available to treat these conditions. A worldwide group of expert contributors, under the editorship of two eminent vascular surgeons, Robert Fitridge and Matthew Thompson, create a detailed, well-written, informative book....Although targeted at vascular surgeons and vascular trainees, this book will be of interest to a wider group of clinicians managing patients with vascular disease, including interventional radiologists. This is a must for all vascular trainees and all clinicians involved in the management of and research into vascular disease....This is a comprehensive, up-to-date resource detailing the current hypotheses of vascular disease development and outlining strategies to clinically manage the most common vascular conditions." --Doody's Review Service
