comprehensive and carefully updated book addressing the goals expressed
in the title, E n d o v a s c u l a r Skills: Guidewire and Catheter Skills for Endovascular Surgery. It is straightforward and easy to read and takes a step-bystep approach. The book not only provides a review of basic catheter and
guidewire skills for those entering the endovascular arena, it thoroughly
updates new endovascular techniques and devices for those experienced in
In this third edition, Dr. Schneider captures the progress that has been
made in recent years and incorporates the expanding knowledge base in a
detailed discussion of instruments, technical capabilities, and a developing
range of therapeutic applications. There are new chapters that provide a
thorough discussion of .014 wire and monorail technologies for treating
tibial, visceral, renal and carotid lesions. There is also extensive discussions
of techniques for treating occlusive lesions in the iliac, SFA, and subclavian
arteries. There is also a comprehensive section on evolving technologies
including lasers, cryotherapy, reentry devices, etc. that may offer advances
following further investigation.
In the chapters relating to stent and endovascular device applications
to vascular beds where the technologies are not FDA approved for these
applications, Dr. Schneider appropriately comments on the current status
of techniques while recognizing that these remain “off-label” applications
for individual use in patients for whom no alternative treatment is available. As is needed in discussing an evolving technology, there is a careful
balance between describing the state of the art and evolution while providing disclaimers regarding currently approved utilization. Throughout the
text, Dr. Schneider does an excellent job of addressing these issues while
describing the fundamental knowledge required to adopt the methods.

iv Foreword
As a single-author text written by a vascular surgeon experienced in
endovascular methods, there is a continuity of thought and conceptual
approach to patients with vascular disease that emphasizes the selection
of the best method of treatment for an individual patient. From this perspective Dr. Schneider provides a practical approach to individual lesions, with
the option for treatment ultimately being determined by the potential success
of the endovascular procedure contrasted with that of a conventional open
The text is well illustrated. It addresses issues regarding the performance of endovascular procedures in an operating room versus an interventional suite, a topic of particular interest to physicians and centers initiating
endovascular programs. It also contains a section that provides additional
information regarding manufacturers of instrumentation and imaging modalities. The book focuses on techniques, basic instrumentation, balloons, and
stents rather than on the use and indications for endovascular prostheses
or similar endovascular technologies. From this perspective, it is a valuable
source of information for any interventionalist or vascular specialist who is
training for or has a practice focused on the use of endovascular techniques.
I strongly recommend this book for individuals and institutions providing endovascular care and congratulate Dr. Schneider for producing a
high-quality text that addresses the fundamental issues important to training
and continued evolution in endovascular therapy
