This monograph is a new addition to the American Lecture Series, a long line of current and fairly complete reviews of medical subjects by recognized authorities. It was produced by a team from Mount Sinai Hospital in Cleveland, among whom are students of neurology, peripheral vascular disease, internal medicine, and diabetes.
