The current treatment of peripheral vascular disease is optimized by a collaborative approach among practitioners with expertise in vascular medicine, vascular imaging, open surgery, and endovascular intervention. The Handbook of Endovascular Peripheral Interventions is a comprehensive guide written by a multi-disciplinary group of expert authors to provide practical, focused chapters on the assessment and interventional management of peripheral vascular diseases. Covering all aspects of percutaneous peripheral vascular interventions, each chapter of this highly-illustrated book provides a brief background, etiology, clinical presentation, imaging, and percutaneous treatment of different vascular conditions. Importantly, Tips of the Trade and How I Do It sections within each chapter make the handbook practical for daily use and quick reference.

Dr. Christopher D. Owens (Division of Vascular Surgery) and Dr. Yerem Yeghiazarians (Division of Interventional Cardiology), from the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine, the Handbook of Endovascular Peripheral Interventions is a collaborative effort between interventional cardiologists, vascular surgeons, and interventional radiologists who are experts in the field. Since each subspecialty brings unique expertise and experience to their work, this handbook will be a valuable resource for both beginning and advanced cardiologists, surgeons, and radiologists currently working in peripheral vascular interventions.
