Pathophysiology and Treatment of Atherosclerotic Disease in Peripheral Arteries is a thorough review of the disease written by experts studying its detection and treatment. These state-of-the-art chapters summarize emerging knowledge about this important area of medicine. The pathophysiology and treatment of peripheral artery (PAD) disease remains poorly understood even by practitioners. Often it is assumed that PAD should be treated in a similar fashion to coronary artery disease (CAD), when in fact recent data suggest a distinct pathophysiology with genetic risk having some but not complete overlap with CAD.This is a novel reference of emerging data on the factors behind its development and progression, detection, and treatment suggest an emerging paradigm for this disease.
Provides understanding for the pathophysiology of PAD from pathologic and molecular perspectives
Reviews state-of-the art modalities for its detection as well as the data surrounding new medical and interventional treatment for PAD
Elucidates the impact of new treatment modalities such as drug coated balloons and atherectomy devices such a lithotripsy
Researchers and physicians interested in the field of PAD Vascular Medicine specialists, Cardiologists, Vascular Surgeons, Interventional radiology and cardiology specialists, students, Industry who makes some of the devices discussed
