Venous Thromboembolic Disease, the second volume in the Contemporary Endovascular Management series, continues the current, succinct review of the rapidly evolving field of venous disease presented in Chronic Venous Insufficiency (volume 1). In recognition of the significant effects of venous disease on patients and the quickly changing modes of therapy in the field, this volume further fulfills the need for a comprehensive assessment of the treatment paradigms and innovative techniques now available. Volume 2 examines deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, thoracic outlet syndrome, and central venous disease from initial presentation through imaging and diagnosis to general and advanced therapies. As leaders in their field, the authors of Venous Thromboembolic Disease focus their contributions on current and relevant research and facts, specifically aiming to close knowledge gaps as well as to provide essential information for the practicing physician, the trainee, and the midlevel provider.

The Contemporary Endovascular Management series is designed to be a focused, relevant, and timely review of the modern aspects of imaging and intervention in specific vascular beds. Each volume in the series addresses one vascular bed and equips readers with the current information necessary for vascular practice using a clear and easy-to-access format.
