The main parts of the book focus on perioperative treatment and imaging, description of the devices and techniques used in peripheral vascular interventions. The essential principles, protocols and invasive techniques used for lower limb interventions have been distilled into a practical manual that is ideal for rapid bedside consultation. The text of the book is oriented for clinical practitioners and we hope it can also serve as a practical guide, particulary for fellows and young interventionalists. The user-friendly outline format features numerous tables, illustrations and annotated references.
