內容簡介 This truly comprehensive title addresses all aspects of the evaluation and management of carotid artery disease. The extracranial carotid artery is an area of confluence for both medical and surgical specialists. Given its unique position and function in the body, disease states that involve the carotid artery require a unique approach to ensure the best outcomes for patients. Developed by a multidisciplinary team of thought leaders from across medical, surgical, and radiological disciplines, Carotid Artery Disease: Evaluation and Management provides a diverse resource where readers can find presentation, evaluation, and management recommendations for any process involving the extracranial carotid artery, be it related to atherosclerotic, traumatic, inflammatory, or even oncologic disease. Indeed this title is a unique offering in that one can find traditional, and even exclusively medical, conditions within the same binding as surgical or interventional ones. Typically, access to this type of information requires the purchase of multiple different texts, but this complete title distills the evaluation and management of carotid artery disease into a one-of-a-kind, practical, accessible reference. A much-needed and invaluable contribution to the clinical literature, Carotid Artery Disease: Evaluation and Management will be of great interest to anyone early in his or her career and needing an introduction to the field, as well as seasoned clinicians in need of state-of-the-art, refresher information.
