About this book


This book, from the faculty and residents of one of the world’s most respected hospitals, provides a comprehensive and concise approach to vascular disease. Beginning with the foundations of vascular disease and diagnosis, this text moves on to cover critical disease processes. Each section of the book, dedicated to a unique pathology, explains salient pathophysiology, presentation, diagnosis, treatment options, and outcomes. A special emphasis is given to both open and endovascular techniques and their related pitfalls.  Additionally, reflecting the growing importance of evidence-based medicine, readers are provided with references to critical publications that underpin diagnostic and therapeutic recommendations. 

 Diagnosis, treatment, and more are provided succinctly, allowing this text to be broad in focus while remaining in a convenient portable format.  As a brief review for practicing physicians or a primary educational text for fellows, residents, and medical students, Cleveland Clinic Manual of Vascular Surgery is a valuable addition to everyone’s library.

From the book reviews:

“This is a succinct overview of a wide array of vascular surgery interventions, grouped into three parts: arterial aneurysms, lymphatics, and miscellaneous. … The authors have written the book to aid vascular surgery fellows and residents, as well as healthcare practitioners from other fields who participate in the care of vascular patients. … useful to practitioners in other fields who frequently encounter vascular patients and who would benefit from an overview of vascular surgery procedures and their indications.” (Katherine Hekman, Doody’s Book Reviews, January, 2015)
