ABC of Arterial and Venous Disease provides a structured, practical approach to clinical assessment, investigation and management of the most commonly presenting arterial and venous disorders. Structural and functional abnormalities of arteries and veins manifest clinically in a broad spectrum of disorders, including cerebrovascular and carotid artery disease, abdominal aortic aneurysms, acute and chronic limb ischaemia, vasculitis and varicose veins. This revised edition incorporates new chapters on coronary artery disease and acute coronary syndrome, visceral artery stenosis and mesenteric ischaemia, and arteriovenous malformations. Many of these common or chronic conditions first present for initial assessment by primary health care professionals. Case vignettes have been added to relevant chapters to aid understanding and decision making. Fully up to date and from an expert editor and contributor team, ABC of Arterial and Venous Disease remains a useful resource for non-specialist doctors such as general practitioners, family physicians and junior doctors in training. It is also a relevant guide for all other primary health care professionals working within the multidisciplinary teams responsible for patients with chronic arterial and venous disorders.Lifestyle advice Education and lifestyle changes should focus on smoking cessation, diet, weight management, ...
