Dr. Criado's most recent monograph for the vascular field covers the most common peripheral percutaneous endovascular interventions and treatments, as well as the latest developments in the field of vascular medicine. Endoluminal technologies, new interventional tools, such as intravascular ultrasound and vascular stents, and other minimally invasive devices are described with clarity. The book demonstrates in detail the necessary skills and fundamental catheter techniques that form the basis of new age vascular intervention. These basic principles as well as new developments are having an unprecedented effect on today's vascular practice, ushering in the era of catheter-based vascular therapy, new nomenclature, and interdisciplinary roles.
Appealing to a multidisciplinary audience of vascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists and radiologists, this illustrated text is intended to be a practical guide, as well as a technical primer, for both veterans and beginning interventionists, with quick answers to common questions.
