Description - Endovascular Therapy by Alan B. Lumsden
This book will be unique because it is completely patient-oriented with a focus on each individual disease and endovascular therapy with step-by-step procedures, tips and tricks, as well as adjunctive management, post-procedure care, complications, etc. It will have a wide readership including vascular, endovascular, and general surgeons. There is great demand in surgical specialties to develop endovascular skills and to encompass these skills into daily practice. This book will be a very practical guide to the creation of the endovascular environment: imaging, catheter and device inventory, nursing support, technician support and to provide a very practice oriented guide to training and performing endovascular procedures. The latter will be accomplished using procedure specific equipment lists, step by step guide to procedure conduct, recommended post procedure orders and follow up.
