New Trends and Developments in Carotid Artery Disease by Alain Branchereau

The incidence of carotid endarterectomy is increasing, despite the controversy surrounding prophylatic surgery. In the United States, there is an increasing emphasis on controlling the cost of care. Throughout the world, and particulary in Europe, promising new endovascular therapies are being developed and implemented. This book represents the current opinions of some of the foremost vascular specialists in Europe and the United States. It examines a remarkably broad and richly relevant range of topics - standardized reporting, ethical and legal aspects of innovative treatment, new imaging procedures, new trends in surgery, updates on prospective studies, and all aspects of percutaneous techniques. Although definitive answers to the major questions in carotid artery disease may not be forthcoming for years, the issues and insights that elicited by this volume are detailed and significant, both in a practical sense and in terms of their potential to guide future research.


"The text is well organized, with multiple data tables summarizing the important points of each topic in most of the sections."--Annals of Vascular Surgery" excellent and up-to-date book that focuses on the status of balloon angioplasty and stenting in relation to carotid endarerectomy. It is not a primer, therefore, I do not recommend it for students and postgraduate trainees. The target audience includes surgeons and interventional and medical specialists who treat patients with carotid artery disease. For them, I recommend it."--The New England Journal of Medicine"...covers most of the field of carotid artery disease in detail and it is well referenced."--British Journal of Surgery"...this book should be of great interest to both vascular and endovascular surgeons who have a strong interest in carotid artery disease and a keen desire to be up-to-date with the future developments in the field."--Journal of Endovascular Surgery"...well organized and comprehensive. ...Some chapters are masterfully conceived and executed, such as the review of standard and innovative carotid surgical techniques by Kieffer and associates."--Doody's Review Service"Almost every chapter in the book is well-illustrated--sometimes in color--with radiographs, ultrasound pictures, black and white illustrations, and lost of tables and survival curves showing relevant aspects of each topic. The book is well-referenced and you might use it as a starting point for further and more profound studies of almost every aspect of practical vascular surgery."An extra asset of this commendable achievement is the full cooperation between the English-speaking and French-speaking communities of vascular surgery."--The European Journal of Surgery"This book is a valuable source of data and brings to the American reader in particular European works that might otherwise be overlooked. It provides an update on the latest techniques for assessing the carotid artery and is a useful source of references. ...most of the text is lucid and easily read. ...It is a book for vascular surgeons of all training grades who want to broaden their perceptions of carotid disease and discover what is happening elsewhere in the world. It also should appeal to a nonsurgical audience of physicians and radiologists involved in treating such diseases and should encourage them to make the same rigorous appraisal of their results as that now applied to carotid surgery."--Journal of Vascular Surgery
