Loyola cardiologist is co-editor of text on minimally invasive procedures for vascular diseases

MAYWOOD, Ill. – Loyola University Medical Center interventional cardiologist Robert Dieter, MD, is co-editor of a new authoritative textbook on minimally invasive endovascular techniques to treat vascular disease.

“Endovascular Interventions: A Case-Based Approach” describes current endovascular (catheter-based) treatment of peripheral artery disease, venous diseases, lymphatic disorders and other venous disorders.

Co-editors are Dieter’s father, Raymond Dieter, Jr., and his brother, Raymond Dieter III. This is the third major textbook the Dieters have edited together. Their previous books are “Peripheral Arterial Disease” and “Venous and Lymphatic Diseases”. Raymond Dieter, Jr., also is editor of “Thoracoscopy for Surgeons: Diagnostic and Therapeutic”.

“My father and older brother are fantastic to work with,” Robert Dieter said. “I have learned a lot from them."

“Endovascular Interventions” uses a series of case studies to present a range of complexities and complications physicians encounter in their daily practice, along with tips and tricks for overcoming them. The 1,300-page text is a practical guide and resource for practicing vascular specialists, interventional cardiologists, interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons and cardiothoracic surgeons.
Robert Dieter is an associate professor in the Division of Cardiology at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine and director of Vascular Medicine at Edward Hines, Jr., VA Hospital.

Raymond Dieter III is a cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. Raymond Dieter, Jr., is a semi-retired cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon formerly with DuPage Medical Group.

Robert Dieter lives in Glen Ellyn, Ill., where he was raised and where his parents still live.
