difficult decisions in vascular surgery 2016 an evidence based approach

christopher l. skelly

description

the complexity of decision making in medicine, and in surgery in particular, is growing exponentially. as new technology is introduced, physicians from nonsurgical specialties offer alternative and competing therapies for what was once the exclusive province of the surgeon. in addition, there is increasing knowledge regarding the efficacy of traditional surgical therapies. how to select among these varied and complex approaches is becoming increasingly difficult. the first two editions of "difficult decisions in thoracic surgery: an evidence based approach" have found wide acceptance among practicing surgeons, trainees, and educators. chapters from them are regularly cited by the thoracic surgery directors association as valuable resources for their weekly curriculum exercises. s of individual chapters have been very popular. the 3rd edition is in production. based on this success, this book is part of a series of such books covering other surgical specialties. the volumes will be multi-authored, containing brief chapters, each of which will be devoted to one or two specific questions or decisions within that specialty that are difficult or controversial.
the volumes are intended as a current and timely reference source for practicing surgeons, surgeons in training, and educators that describe the recommended ideal approach, rather than customary care, in selected clinical situations.show more

vascular diseases for the non specialist 2017 an evidence based guide

tulio pinho navarro

description

this book aims to provide non-specialist healthcare practitioners with current, focused and objective information on the most common vascular diseases encountered in daily clinical practice. in day-to-day clinical practice many healthcare practitioners do not have a working knowledge of the most common vascular diseases that frequently arise in patient care. some of these topics include: aneurysms, peripheral arterial disease, diabetic foot, venous thromboembolism, cerebrovascular disease, aortic dissection, and acute limb ischemia. these commonly encountered vascular diseases are becoming public health issues due to their high morbidity and mortality as well as increasing healthcare costs. since patients with vascular diseases are often referred to non-specialists, the general practitioner must know how to proper handle the most common vascular diseases encountered in daily clinical practice. for each disease the concept, epidemiology, natural history, diagnosis and treatment are described, followed by essential advice on what the non-specialist can do for the patient and when to refer the patient to a specialist.show more

vascular surgery 2017 a global perspective

alan dardik

description

vascular surgery has experienced remarkable growth and diversification in the last decade, especially with its embracing the disruptive endovascular technological revolution. vascular surgeons remain the only group of specialists capable of total treatment of patients with vascular disease, providing medical, minimally invasive, and surgical therapy. although vascular surgeons practice in all areas of the world, practice patterns in different areas naturally have both similarities and differences that reflect both regional patterns of disease, genetic characteristics of local peoples, cultural preferences for treatment, local political and economic situations, different access to resources and devices, as well as different training paradigms. thus, the practice of vascular surgery has diversified and evolved in parallel in many areas, converging and diverging in many ways. vascular surgery: a global perspective provides the first review and comparison of the diversity of vascular surgery practice around the world.
the book is grouped according to common vascular diseases such as aneurysmal and occlusive arterial disease, as well as venous and lymphatic disease and dialysis access. each major disease topic includes multiple chapters written by expert specialists from around the world, each discussing their local approach to the disease and its treatment. similarly, the status of vascular surgery practice is addressed, including discussion of the influence of payment systems on practice, patient access to the internet for information, training paradigms, and the legal system including malpractice. this textbook provides the first worldwide summary of the care of patients with vascular disease and will be of interest to a wide audience including vascular surgeons, vascular medical specialists, cardiologists, radiologists, internists, and family practice physicians.show more

controversies in vascular neurosurgery 2016

erol veznedaroglu

description

this concise, easy-to-use book offers expert insights into current controversies in vascular neurosurgery with a view to providing the practitioner with authoritative practical guidance that will assist in the management of difficult disease entities. while vascular neurosurgery has undergone unprecedented advances during the past decade, enabling safer and easier access to previously untreatable pathology, this progress has been accompanied by confusion as to what constitutes best, or even acceptable, practice. here, experts in the field discuss the various tools available and explain how best to use them when confronted by different pathologies, drawing upon their personal experience. each chapter focuses on a specific case that is discussed by two experienced surgeons; a third author then evaluates the case, highlighting the available evidence and pearls in the treatment of that particular disease. the authors have been carefully chosen to provide a truly balanced viewpoint on paradigms that they themselves use. they therefore have a sound understanding of the thought processes of surgeons when dealing with challenging diseases for which there may be no single correct path.
furthermore, they are well placed to identify not only appropriate uses of new treatment options and technologies but also circumstances in which their use is best avoided. the ultimate benefactor of this book will be the patient: our biases as physicians should never become a patient's morbidity.show more

essentials of vascular surgery for the general surgeon

by vivian gahtan (editor), michael j. costanza (editor)

this volume provides a concise and up to date resource that directly addresses the needs of general surgeons who perform vascular surgery by focusing on the diagnosis and clinical management of common vascular conditions. the volume is divided into sections on arterial disease, venous disease, vascular trauma, and vascular access. chapters on arterial disease outline the management and surgical techniques for the treatment of acute limb ischemia, compartment syndrome, and diabetic foot infections. chronic arterial disease is addressed in chapters devoted to the management of claudication, critical limb ischemia, and lower extremity amputation. the section on vascular trauma emphasizes surgical intervention for blood vessel injuries that occur in the neck, abdomen, and extremity. vascular access chapters deal with the technical aspects and potential complications of temporary venous access catheters and permanent arteriovenous access for hemodialysis. more complex vascular topics are also covered with chapters that are shorter in length and focused on the diagnosis and a broad understanding of treatment options.

essentials of vascular surgery for the general surgeon is the first of its kind to accurately mirror the score curriculum for vascular disease as a patient care topic in general surgery training, acting as a “one stop” information source that general surgery trainees can turn to as a clinical reference and as a study guide for general surgery in service exams and board.

step by step arterial surgery

arterial surgeryby choudhry piush

since time immemorial, the human body has been subjected to the inevitable process of trauma whether it is accidental or iatrogenic. though the access into various super specialities has made the management of each individual patient inexcusable requiring a positive predictable outcome, there are limitations of approach in certain cases due to constrains regarding geographic, financial or availability of the surgeon at accidental site. this book serves to bridge the gap between the accidental victim and the surgeon to initiate the procedures until treatment is completed. the arteries from the neck to the lower limbs have been described together with their incisions for exposure, vascular diseases and conditions related to the arteries. the illustrations provided with each artery succinctly describe the course of the vessel which makes it an easy to understand reference guide. the accessibility to such text and illustration in arteries makes the book useful in management of warfare injuries, road traffic accidents and various other incidences.

the evidence for vascular surgery edition 2

by j. j. earnshaw, j. a. murie
the first edition published in 1999, was described as a “longed for addition to the literature”, and as a text that “cannot be compared with any other book on vascular surgery” (lancet 2000; 355: 1918). at the time it was different; a book to help busy clinicians sift through surgical research and use it to make sensible decisions for their clinical practice. the challenge for this second edition is to produce something better still. the new edition is larger and more comprehensive, thanks to valuable suggestions from colleagues and reviewers. the text is as accessible as possible, with short chapters, recommendations for management, comprehensive referencing and full colour illustration. it belongs on the shelf, or in the briefcase of everyone who has to treat patients with vascular disease.

complications in vascular and endovascular surgery how to avoid them and how to get out of trouble

by jonothan j. earnshaw (editor), michael g. wyatt (editor)
the aim of this book is to help clinicians to reduce the risk of complications after vascular and endovascular surgery. whilst it is a surgical truism that the surgeon who does the most operations has the most complications (an acknowledgement of the fact that all vascular and endovascular procedures are potentially hazardous, and some extremely so), some surgeons seem to have more complications than others. this book is for all surgeons and radiologists who accept the challenge continually to improve their results. each chapter is authored by an experienced (endo)vascular specialist who will have witnessed firsthand the perils and pitfalls of vascular procedures. they have seen all the complications, and even occasionally made errors of judgement. the chapters are full of information to help the reader avoid similar hazards in future. we live in a world of high patient expectation, where complications are seen as ‘someone’s fault’. clinicians are familiar with innovations such as outcomes audit and assessment, procedural governance and quality improvement programmes. there is pressure to show progressive improvement. first class surgery is a combination of knowledge and skill and perhaps just a little luck, though as is oft quoted ‘the more you practice, the luckier you get’. the information in this book will provide insights, protocols, and tips and tricks to minimise the risks of procedures in vascular and endovascular surgery. it is therefore essential reading for anyone who treats patients with vascular disease.
