Highly visual and packed with useful, practical information, Atlas of Endovascular Venous Surgery, 2nd Edition,
provides real-world instruction on the evaluation, diagnostic imaging, and medical and endovascular surgical management
of acute and chronic venous diseases. Dr. Jose Almeida, pioneering expert in the field and host of the annual
International Vein Congress, along with other highly regarded practitioners, offers an authoritative understanding of
what causes increased venous pressure and solutions for reducing venous hypertension. Detailed, full-color
intraoperative illustrations capture key teaching moments, helping you better understand the nuances of surgery and
improve your ability to perform cutting-edge procedures.
New to this Edition
* Reflects the many developments that have taken place in the treatment of the deep venous system, especially the use
of new anticoagulants and techniques to treat the sequelae of acute and chronic venous thromboembolic disease.
* Includes five brand-new chapters covering venous hemodynamics; new concepts in the management of pulmonary embolus;
endothermal heat induced thrombosis; deep venous incompetence and valve repair; and nutcracker syndrome.
* Features significant updates throughout, including new devices in the management of thromboembolic disease;
aggressive techniques for recanalizing iliofemoral venous occlusions, new nomenclature and endovascular approach to
the treatment of pelvic venous disorders, new non-thermal devices for saphenous vein ablation, new stents for
treatment of iliac vein obstruction and new devices for clot management, and endovascular and open repair of deep
vein obstruction and reflux.
* Expert Consult™ eBook version included with purchase. This enhanced eBook experience allows you to search all of the
text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices.
* Uses full-color line art to depict key anatomic features and anatomic approaches to venous surgeries, providing you
with an overview of the relevant clinical anatomy for each procedure.
* Shows the correlation between radiologic appearance (ultrasound, CT, MRI) and anatomic and surgical views.
* Accompanies each surgical procedure with concise, descriptive text, giving you a step-by-step "walk through" of each
technique. High-quality intraoperative videos demonstrate key stages of intraoperative technique.
* Ideal for all practitioners who treat patients with venous disorders, including vascular and general surgeons as well
as interventional radiologists.
