This compact, richly illustrated text presents a uniquely visual representation of the procedures interventionalists need to master to perform peripheral vascular interventions successfully. Written and illustrated by a skilled practitioner with many years of hands-on clinical experience, it shares his knowledge, advice, and techniques, giving readers the sense of sitting side-by-side with him at the angiography table.

Special Features:

  • More than 570 instructive, fully labeled schematic drawings showing the sequence of steps in common peripheral vascular interventions (excluding the vessels of the heart)
  • Covers the physiologic, anatomic, and technical fundamentals of procedures undertaken in the abdomen and lower and upper extremities
  • Includes detailed information on materials (e.g., stents, guidewires, cannulas, sheaths, and balloon and angiography catheters) and methods (e.g., retrograde and antegrade catheterization of the femoral artery, crossover catheterization, venous access, angiography, stent placement, local thrombolysis, and much more)
  • Focuses on procedures chosen for their clinical relevance and frequency of occurrence in everyday practice
  • Shares the authors wealth of clinical experience in time-saving tips, tricks, warning signs, risks, complications, and hazards to avoid

Especially for the beginning interventional radiologist, but also for the more experienced practitioner who wants to optimize procedures, this book provides the didactic visual examples and descriptions to perform interventions confidently and successfully. It is an ideal reference and refresher for residents, fellows, and practitioners in radiology and interventional radiology, vascular surgery, and angiology.

Book News
Schröder (diagnostic and interventional radiology, Diaconess Medical Center, Germany) combines concise texts with numerous schematic diagrams to illustrate how to perform vascular interventions successfully. Because the procedure is primarily under visual control, he says, it makes sense to take a visual approach to learning it, but he warns that this book cannot substitute for conventional textbooks that provide detailed descriptions of certain complex, high-risk interventions such as endovascular aortic prostheses or carotid artery stents. He covers material, methods, abdomen, lower and upper extremities, other endovascular interventions, complications, recurrent stenosis, and documentation and post-processing.
