Vascular Disorders of the Upper Extremity

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, diagnostic 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 diagnostic 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, diagnosis and management of arteriovenous 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 diagnose 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."

"This book should be on the shelf of anyone interested in this area"Journal of Vascular Surgery (review of the second edition)"Within the scope of vascular surgery there is no comparable text. This is an authoritative book that deals exclusively with vascular disorders of the upper extremity. The book provides a single-source text for specific problems that is easy to read and understand. In addition, the textbook provides a thoughtful and studied approach into perplexing problems associated with cumulative trauma disorders and thoracic outlet compression. Thus, this book serves as a ready reference for a variety of physicians including vascular and general surgeons, as well as general internists and vascular medicine specialists."...highly recommended and well priced."Annals of Vascular Surgery"The 3rd edition of Vascular Disorders of the Upper Extremity is a portable size book that brings the reader up to date. A large majority of upper extremity problems encountered by the practicing vascular surgeon pose difficulties for two reasons: (1) patient volumes outside a referral center are minimal, and (2) the pathophysiology rarely involves atherosclerosis. Therefore, it is important for the practicing vascular surgeon to have a reasonable reference source to deal with these infrequent, but often complicated, cases."Journal of Vascular Surgery"I find this a timely and valuable contribution. In a crowded field of texts on circulatory disease, this focused, well written, beautifully illustrated, and comprehensively referenced work will be a useful addition to the library of clinicians caring for patients with upper extremity disorders."Doody's Review Service"[Dr. Machleder's] experience is evident in what he writes, and that translates into well-written, readable chapters."...this book would be of interest to the vascular surgeon, general surgeon and trainee in surgery. It serves as a useful review of various issues on the management of these often complex vascular problems. It would be a good book to have for most practising physicians who encounter patients with upper extremity vascular disorders."Canadian Journal of Surgery
