The Vein Book is a comprehensive reference on veins and venous circulation. In one volume it provides complete, authoritative, and up-to-date information about venous function and dysfunction, bridging the gap between clinical medicine and basic science. It is the single authoritative resource which consolidates present knowledge and stimulates further developments in this rapidly changing field.Startling new treatment for venous thromboembolic diseaseDetails the condition of varicose veins, spider veins and thread veins and discusses treatment optionsRadically effective treatment of leg ulcerClarification of the pathophysiology of Venous InsufficiencyMolecular mechanisms in the cause of varicose veins
One of the only books discussing new advances in venous ulcer therapy, Venous Ulcers provides a comprehensive look at the molecular biology and pathophysiology of venous ulcers. It discusses the many new treatments currently being used that offer non-invasive treatment options to patients with venous ulcerations.Leg ulcers are defined as a discontinuity of the epithelial surface; a local defect or excavation of the surface of the skinVenous ulceration tends to take a number of months to heal followed by frequent relapse to further episodesThis work discusses the newest tools of patient investigation that have emerged in recent years that help to shorten patient recovery times and provide less invasive treatments
Since its initial publication nearly a decade ago, The Vein Book continues to serves as the ultimate comprehensive resource on venous disease. Upholding its reputation as the go-to reference for complete, authoritative, and up-to-date information about venous function and dysfunction, this second edition effectively bridges the gap between clinical medicine and basic science, suitable both for the seasoned surgeon as well as the medical student. The book is divided into five essential sections: basic considerations, primary superficial venous insufficiency, venous thromboembolism, chronic venous insufficiency, and congenital venous malformations. The book covers the entire spectrum of venous conditions from clarification of the pathophysiology of venous insufficiency, molecular mechanisms in the cause of varicose veins, new treatment options for varicose veins and spider veins, startling new treatment for venous thromboembolic disease, and effective treatment for leg ulcers. More user-friendly and encyclopedic than ever, The Vein Book is still a must-have for vascular surgeons, phlebologists, interventional radiologists, research scientists, epidemiologists, and surgeons at all levels.
