Catheter-delivered therapeutic ultrasound angioplasty is a new
technique for use in the treatment of obstructive vascular disease.
The treatment differs from balloon angioplasty in that it has been
shown experimentally to cause disintegration of calcific and
fibrotic atherosclerotic plaques, thrombus dissolution and arterial
vasodilation. In contrast to laser technology, ultrasound systems
are relatively inexpensive and simple to use and maintain. In the
clinical trials detailed in this text, ultrasound angioplasty has
been shown to be feasible and safe. Ultrasound Angioplasty is a
comprehensive text, addressing the theoretical, experimental and
clinical issues. The international contributions reflect the
excitement, interest, spirit and cooperation in the research and
development of therapeutic ultrasound.
