Approximately eight to twelve million individuals in the United States are affected by peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Thus this disease is common and well represented in nearly all adult medical practices. Peripheral arterial diseases include diverse clinical entities that encompass atherosclerotic, aneurysmal, vasospastic, and inflammatory disorders that affect the arteries. The Peripheral Arterial Disease Handbook presents a unique compendium of evidenced-based and expert approaches for the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral arterial diseases, written for all practitioners who care for adults with these disorders. This comprehensive, easy-to-use book presents both epidemiological and pathophysiological data in succinct form, along with a practical clinical review of the diagnosis and treatment of the most important areas of peripheral arterial disease care.
