Vascular disease is increasing in prevalence, but remains under-diagnosed and under-treated. In the past few years, interest in peripheral vascular and cerebrovascular intervention has blossomed. Techniques adapted from interventional cardiology, radiology, and surgery have ushered in a new era of endovascular intervention. The Guide to Peripheral and Cerebrovascular Intervention brings together experts in the field of endovascular therapy to cover topics such as the basics of vascular anatomy, the pearls of appropriate case selection, and the fundamental equipment and pharmacotherapy for successful procedures.
