This small volume is devoted to one of the most common patient complaints encountered by practitioners of adult medicine, and one that frequently presents the initial examining physician with a diagnostic conundrum. Few internists, primary care physicians, emergency room physicians, or medical or surgical subspecialists are thoroughly familiar with the neurologic, orthopedic, immunologic, and vascular causes of leg pain, and help from the literature requires access to multiple texts from diverse medical and surgical specialties.
Leg Pain brings together, in a compact and easily transportable volume, expertise from the fields of vascular surgery, neurology, orthopedics and rheumatology, to offer insights into the clinical signs and symptoms associated with leg pain of diverse origins.
· Emphasizes distinguishing features of the various types of leg pain, most of which can be determined by a simple history and physical examination.
· Much important data are presented in tabular form to aid in arriving at a correct diagnosis.
· Contains practical illustrations including a large section showcasing normal anatomy of the lower extremity.

Despite the fact that Interventional Radiology is steadily moving toward a cli- cal specialty with the need for broad medical training, daily craftsmanship will always remain fundamental to what an interventional radiologist does. Without basic catheter and wire skills IR would not be what it is today. When I watch ex- rienced colleagues work I am always surprised to see that, concerning the technique and the materials, we all make the same choices. There is apparently a common IR skill, which is universal and can be learned with experience. I always see this with new IR fellows, that it takes time to step away from improvising and letting the p- cedure take the lead to logic and standardized control over a procedure. Choosing the right materials for the right job and building a level of con dence with these materials is a very important part of any IR fellowship. Why can a supervisor get a stable catheter position with a new wire in no time, whereas the fellow almost gives up? The difference is knowing your materials for this speci c indication and c- bining routine and standardized operational procedures. Hands-on workshops are always very popular at every IR meeting because one can really learn about basic skills. Lectures with the title “How I do it,” can always count on a full audience.

Clinical Management Notes and Case Histories in Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy is a succinct guide that facilitates a case-based learning approach to cardiopulmonary care. This one-of-a-kind text combines evidence-based assessment and management skills and well-thought-out cases of typical presentations of pulmonary and cardiovascular conditions. This combined approach helps students and clinicians learn meaningful skills in a clinically relevant manner.
Two primary components present in Clinical Management Notes and Case Histories in Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy are notes on cardiopulmonary assessment and management, and case histories involving respiratory and cardiovascular conditions commonly viewed by physical therapists. Accompanying the notes are thought-provoking questions and problems that enable the reader to establish a foundation of core concepts. The presentation of case histories further facilitates the development of integral skills and enables the reader to integrate those core concepts into a clinical setting. Also, question and answer guides accompany the patient profiles. Physical Examinations Chest Radiology Pulmonary Function Testing EKG Interpretation
The two-fold evidence and case based learning approach used by authors W. Darlene Reid, BMR(PT), PhD and Frank Chung, BSc(PT), MSc allows for a more engaging experience. Students are able to learn and develop skills to prepare them for their professional transition while clinicians can use the text as a reference tool.
