May 19th, 2015 | Posted in Medical Articles
At Upstate Veterinary Specialties, there is constant interest in learning and further advancement of the practice of veterinary medicine. Last month, Dr. Aaron C. Wey published his third book chapter in a veterinary textbook, Veterinary Image Guided Interventions (Wiley-Blackwell). The publication is meant to be a step-by-step guide for many interventional procedures in veterinary patients, from targeted administration of chemotherapy to intracardiac interventions. Dr. Wey authored a chapter about balloon valvuloplasty of tricuspid and mitral valve abnormalities in the text, whose primary audience consists of veterinary specialists.
In addition to this recent publication, Dr. Wey has contributed chapters to two other textbooks, which can be found on the shelves of many general practitioners as well as specialists. Three editions of the Clinical Veterinary Advisor (Elsevier) have been published with Dr. Wey’s contributions on a congenital malformation (atrial septal defect) in dogs and cats. In two editions of Small Animal Critical Care Medicine (Elsevier), Dr. Wey has also authored a chapter covering all aspects of the most common form of heart disease seen in dogs, myxomatous valvular degeneration or degenerative valve disease.
Dr. Wey and the other specialists at Upstate Veterinary Specialties have authored a number of other articles in prominent scientific journals as well.
