This manual is a practical how-to guide to vascular interventional procedures for all arteries and veins outside the coronary vascular system.
The book provides the information needed to evaluate patients and perform procedures and describes the actual techniques used by experienced practitioners, including anticoagulants, antithrombotics, wires, guides, angioplasty, and stents.
Chapters on each artery cover indications for interventional procedures, vascular anatomy, access, diagnostic angiography, and specific interventional techniques. Complications and risks of restenosis are also discussed. The book also includes a chapter on training and credentialing in peripheral vascular intervention.
