Synopses & Reviews
An invaluable reference for clinicians and researchers alike, this book offers a thorough review and analysis of all aspects of saphenous vein bypass graft disease-from preventive surgical techniques to various mechanisms of graft failure in patients. Assesses the potential for molecular and genetic therapies to improve vascular graft patency! Pooling the experience of over 25 coronary specialists, Saphenous Vein Bypass Graft Disease 7describes early and late structural changes in veins used as aortocoronary conduits 7outlines directional coronary atherectomy and transluminal extraction atherectomy 7focuses on the pathologic changes resulting from saphenous vein balloon angioplasty 7analyzes postsurgical complications such as congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, hemorrhage, and infection 7examines grafts of the internal thoracic, gastroepiploic, and inferior epigastric arteries 7identifies the role of noninvasive testing methods, including stress echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging 7discusses graft failure mechanisms such as early graft thrombosis, intimal hyperplasia, and late graft atherosclerosis 7reviews clinical data regarding risk factor control after surgical revascularization 7and more! Complete with more than 800 figures and references, Saphenous Vein Bypass Graft Disease benefits cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons; cardiovascular pathologists; angiologists; internists; pharmacologists; intensive care, emergency, and primary care physicians; and graduate and medical school students in these disciplines.
