Description: Structural and functional abnormalities of arteries and veins manifest clinically in a broad spectrum of disorders, including aneurysmal disease, atherosclerosis, vasculitis, venous insufficiency, microvascular complications, thrombo-embolism and lower limb ulceration. Many of these are common and/or chronic conditions which present for initial assessment by primary health care workers. This new edition is a practical guide to the most commonly presenting disorders, and provides a structured approach to clinical assessment, investigations and management. The last few years have seen major changes in the use of non-invasive or minimally-invasive techniques, e.g wider use of CT and MR angiography, and increasing use of percutaneous interventions for carotid, lower limb and reno-vascular disease. The ABC of Arterial and Venous Disease (Second Edition) explains the underlying technology and the applications of new minimally-invasive methods, especially CT and MRI, and provides an up-dated, evidence-based guide to the modern day management of patients with common, life-threatening diseases involving different parts of the circulation. This authoritative, full-colour, illustrated ABC is an ideal reference for the primary care, non-specialist practitioner to base effective management and prevention programmes.

Description: Biomedical scientists are the foundation of modern healthcare, from cancer screening to diagnosing HIV, from blood transfusion for surgery to food poisoning and infection control. Without biomedical scientists, the diagnosis of disease, the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment, and research into the causes and cures of disease would not be possible. The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series is written to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analytical approaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a Biomedical Scientist may be exposed - from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science. Alongside volumes exploring specific biomedical themes and related laboratory diagnosis, an overarching Biomedical Science Practice volume gives a grounding in the professional and experimental skills with which any Biomedical Scientist must be equipped.
