About this book

This text provides an overview of venous diseases and focuses on clinical evaluation and management. It is intended to guide the treating physician by summarizing the evidence, giving technical tips, and outlining algorithms for common conditions. A unique feature of this book is clinical pearls given by experts in the field that are highlighted in each chapter. The first section of the book describes the essential anatomy and physiology/pathophysiology. It also includes evaluation of common presentations of venous diseases such as extremity edema and lower extremity ulceration with a summary for work up that includes conditions that can mimic venous diseases. The organization of the book follows the basic pathophysiology of venous disorders with chapters addressing special conditions of common interest such as pelvic congestion syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, and May-Thurner syndrome. There is emphasis on novel treatment modalities and emerging technologies through dedicated chapters to anticoagulant agents, emerging modalities to treat superficial venous reflux and venous stent technology. Finally, this book is a melting pot for physicians who have shown dedication and passion to the care of patients with venous disease regardless of specialty and location.The authors are an international panel of vascular experts who trained in vascular surgery, interventional radiology, interventional cardiology, hematology, pulmonology and critical care medicine. Therefore, the book will be of great value to the physicians and trainees in those specialties and to any person interested in developing in depth knowledge of the management of venous diseases.

Reviews

“This comprehensive book is an invaluable resource to clinicians, trainees, and medical educators as it does an outstanding job of summarizing venous disorders and their treatment modalities, including the newest emerging techniques in the field of venous disorders. This book pertains to any clinician in the fields of phlebology, vascular surgery, interventional radiology, cardiology, and medicine who practices or is interested in learning more about management of venous disorders.” (Golta Rasouli and Sean E. Mazloom, Journal of Vascular Surgery, Vol. 6 (5), September, 2018)

“The book is targeted at physicians who treat venous pathology, which encompasses not only surgeons and interventionalists … . Trainees will find the detailed technique description in each chapter an excellent go‐to for preparation for an unfamiliar procedure, and seasoned practitioners will appreciate the up‐to‐date summaries of each therapeutic modality. … The detailed technique descriptions, excellent illustrations, and high quality intraprocedural photos make this an excellent reference for venous specialists.” (Matthew C. Chia, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2018)
