This text, the first of its kind, is intended to fill a need for cardiologists who wish to broaden their knowledge base and clinical skills in recognition and management of common peripheral vascular disorders that occur in cardiovascular practice. Peripheral Vascular Disease for Cardiologists will be presented in a practical, clinical framework rather than the usual textbook format. Additionally, in order to facilitate rapid retrieval of information, a detailed index will be included.
This very practical guide has high potential for industry support.
COMPETITION: There is no single clinical text devoted to this important topic.
