Traditionally, vascular disorders of the upper extremity have been slighted in conventional vascular surgery texts, despite the fact that these disorders are among those most frequently encountered. Since its original publication in 1983, this text has been a welcome and effective remedy for this reference gap. The current edition of this widely acclaimed classic, succeeds, once again, in its goal to expertly and comprehensively present the clinical presentation, diagstic techniques, and therapeutic approaches to almost the full range of common and uncommon conditions affecting this area.Part I focuses on the vascular evaluation, reviewing diagstic and interventional angiography, as well as such newer methods as Magnetic Resonance Angiography. Part II is an all-new section that covers cumulative traumatic disorders, with surgical options and methodology expertly detailed and in-depth chapters on repetitive motion disorders and pain management. Part III provides a superbly illustrated practical framework for the categorisation, diagsis and management of arterioveus malforations. Finally, Part IV reviews vasculitis and collagen-vascular disorders - newly enhanced by a description of the extraordinary development of endoscopic methods and techniques.In his review of the second edition (published in the May, 1990 issue of Journal of Vascular Surgery), Dr. Kenneth Ouriel calls this book well organized, well illustrated, and comprehensive and concludes: 'Mastery of this text will allow one to diagse and treat upper extremity vascular problems in a logical and efficient manner, providing the patient with the best opportunity for successful management of these frequently disabling disorders.'
