This book consists of 15 chapters. Chapter 1 discusses the systemic, coronary, pulmonary and lymphatic circulation in brief and anatomy and physiology of artery and vein are also covered. Chapter 2 covers the biomechanics of circulation, i.e. hemodynamics and applied physiology of circulation, is covered. Chapters 3 and 4 cover the epidemiology of peripheral vascular disorders. Epidemiology of a disease includes prevalence, incidence, progression and morbidity and mortality associated with it. We have tried to put maximum literature about it. Chapters 5–7 cover almost all vascular diseases in detail, including the medical and surgical management. Each vascular disorder is described under definition, etiology, types, pathogenesis, clinical features, investigations and management.
