True to the editors' goal of developing a practical text, the diagnostic descriptions are brief and focus primarily on the appropriate use of noninvasive and invasive diagnostic tests, their interpretation, and their limitations. Almost no stone is left unturned in reviewing the various options for intervention available to the treating physician, whether endoluminal or open surgical or any combination thereof.—Annals of Vascular Surgery, International Journal of Vascular Surgery, March 2005
