Carotid Artery Stenting: A Practical Guide offers beginners a contemporary practical handbook.
As the popularity of Carotid Artery Stenting (CAS) grows, so too does the demand in knowledge and guidance for this technically challenging and high risk procedure.
The book aids optimal outcomes during early experiences with CAS by helping to avoid many common pitfalls. The text runs through common themes of CAS such as carotid anatomy variations, material selection, imaging during CAS, pharamacological support regimes and post procedural care serving to minimise the potential risk of error and further complications.
This is an essential handbook for physicians of all backgrounds, particularly Vascular Radiologists, Neurointerventionists, Vascular Surgeons, Interventional Cardiologists, and Neurologists/Stroke Physicians.
This book is written by a number of authors from around the globe, and edited by Gerry Stansby and Sumaira Macdonald, two experts in the field of vascular radiology and surgery. Sumaira Macdonald is also responsible for the carotid artery stenting program in Newcastle making this book a reliable source of information and guidance in the domain of CAS.
Written for: Both European/US readership: vascular radiologists, neurointerventionists, vascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists, neurologists/stroke physicians
