In Diabetes and Peripheral Vascular Disease, a panel of distinguished leaders in the field of medicine, podiatry, and vascular and endovascular therapy assimilate the latest literature on these issues and others for an in-depth review of the management of peripheral vascular disease. Providing an overview of the management of diabetes and diabetic foot changes as well as providing a view of cutting-edge and emerging topics in optimization of arterial status, this important title addresses pathophysiology, anatomy, diagnosis and management of diabetic peripheral vascular disease, emphasizing a multi-disciplinary approach. The first chapter of the book provides an overview of this complex disease process and discusses the teamwork required for optimal management. The chapters continue with the basic pathophysiology of diabetic atherosclerosis and a contemporary review of the management of diabetes. The genesis of diabetic foot ulceration and prevention and management strategies is covered, as is the effects of neuropathy and microvascular changes in the diabetic foot. In addition, Diabetes and Peripheral Vascular Disease covers the microbiology of diabetic foot infections, the role of endovascular interventions and vascular surgery as well as the management of the complications of these procedures, the process of amputation for those patients who have progressed beyond a limb salvage situation, and the effects of diabetes on the cerebrovascular system as well as its implications in patients with aortoiliac disease. An invaluable addition to the literature on diabetes and peripheral vascular disease, the book will be of great interest internists, family practitioners, surgeons, podiatrists, wound care specialists, and vascular specialists. Students, residents, and fellows in surgical and medical specialties should also find this book of significant value and interest.

Understanding tibio-peroneal occlusive disease and its management is vital in treating patients with peripheral vascular disease. Occlusive disease and the resulting ischemia threaten the viability of the lower limb, particularly in diabetics. Edited by widely-respected vascular surgeon Anton N. Sidawy, this textbook explores all aspects of tibio-peroneal disease, including pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment, and management of the lower extremity after adequate circulation is restored. It examines risk factors, disease distribution, and general management issues connected with diabetic patients, as well as adjuvant chemotherapy to improve patency of prosthetic bypasses, thrombolytic therapy for failed bypasses, wound healing, and amputations of the foot and leg.

It is estimated that 1-5% ofthe world's population is affected by some form of diabetes. Patients with these disorders are highly likely to develop microvas cular pathology in the retina and glomerulus and they are at a 2--6-fold greater risk for atherosclerotic vascular disease than individuals without diabetes. In addition, hypertension is far more prevalent in patients with diabetes than in the general population. As a consequence of these complications, diabetes is a leading cause of blindness and renal failure in young and middle-aged adults and it is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease, stroke and peripheral vascular disease in the Western world. An understanding of the relationship of these vascular complications to diabetic hyperglycemia has become a critical issue for clinicians in recent years, since the prevalence of diabetes appears to be increasing dramatically world-wide. In addition, it is now possible to achieve improved glycemic control in many patients-although not without incurring other risks. This volume explores two principal hypotheses concerning these complications. One is that hyperglycemia underlies or at least contributes to the pathogenesis of both micro- and macrovascular disease in patients with diabetes. The other is that it does so by producing specific metabolic and biochemical alterations in the vascular wall that lead to abnormalities in its function and ultimately its structure.

Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) affects more than 30 million people worldwide, most often individuals over age 65. Despite this, PVD remains a disease with which many clinicians are unfamiliar. Peripheral Vascular Disease helps medical professionals of different backgrounds and training apply resources adequately to benefit individual patients. The authors provide a description of relevant vascular anatomy and pathophysiology, a focused review of diagnostic modalities used in screening for PVD, and contemporary medical and interventional treatments used for PVD. Generous use of bullet points, condensed tables, high-quality figures, and diagrams facilitate easy comprehension of a multifaceted and serious condition.

Caring for patients with vascular disease has always been a challenging and complex area of care for both nurses and other healthcare professionals. In the past, patients with vascular disease were cared for under the umbrella of ?general surgery?. There is now a clearer understanding of the need to provide specialist nursing to meet the needs of vascular patients. This book addresses all aspects of care and management for different vascular conditions and stages of the disease process that the nurse will encounter. Guidance is given in dealing with some of the very challenging aspects of vascular nursing such as pressure sore prevention, pain and wound management, as well as palliative care provision for patients with end stage vascular disease. It will help nurses and other healthcare professionals involved in caring for vascular patients to update and expand their knowledge of developments in conservative, radiological and surgical aspects of care. Shelagh Murray has drawn together the work of specialists who are experts within their field of practice, and the book covers all aspects of vascular nursing. Contents:

Recognized experts comprehensively review the clinical, surgical, radiological, and scientific aspects of athero-sclerotic peripheral arterial disease (PAD), including endovascular, gene, and drug therapies.
Author: Jay D. Coffman
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Although peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is often unrecognized or neglected by physicians, it affects twenty percent of older persons, causes considerable disability-including loss of limbs-and is an indicator of similar disease in the heart and other blood vessels. In Peripheral Arterial Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment, a panel of recognized experts comprehensively reviews the clinical, surgical, radiological, and scientific aspects of atheroscleotic peripheral arterial disease (PAD), large vessel vasculitis, and thromboangiitis, including endovascular, gene, and drug therapies. In their far-ranging discussions, the authors examine in depth the risk factors and antiplatelet therapies for PAD patients in danger of a heart attack and/or stroke, the important role of exercise rehabilitation, the surgical and catheter-based approaches to revascularization, the preoperative evaluation, and the perioperative management of the vascular patient. They also discuss the special problems of peripheral arterial disease in women, management of the diabetic foot, large vessel vasculitis, thromboangiitis obliterans, and atheroembolism. Completing this detailed overview is important information on ameliorating the risk factors for PAD, its pathogenesis and epidemiology, and the physiological and pathophysiological basis of available diagnostic tests. Authoritative and comprehensive, Peripheral Arterial Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment provides a detailed accounting of the medical, surgical, and radiological aspects of peripheral arterial obstructive disease, empowering today's clinicians and specialists with the knowledge and skills necessary to diagnose and treat this important but often overlooked disorder.
