Provides concise overviews of current management of vascular diseases utilizing a case-based format.
A wide range of cases is presented encompassing arterial, venous, and lymphatic diseases. The atlas covers the major areas of vascular medicine in eight sections. Each section includes a concise overview of the area, followed by discussions of the major disease entities within that area.
Each disease entity is introduced by an illustrative case presentation and is followed by a detailed topic review including clinical features, laboratory and imaging workup, treatment and prognosis, clinical pearls, discussion of differential diagnoses, and review questions. The presentations are well illustrated to provide a visual, user-friendly approach. Each case presentation has been selected to provide representative examples of the most likely presentation in clinical practice, with complications and variants discussed in the management summary concluding the case.
