Overview

Now in its third edition, the Handbook of Venous Disorders continues to provide comprehensive and up-to-date information on acute and chronic venous and lymphatic diseases and malformations and to discuss the latest knowledge on epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical evaluation, diagnostic imaging, medical, endovascular and surgical management. This revised, updated and expanded edition takes account of all the recent developments in these areas. New chapters on, for example, foam sclerotherapathy, radiofrequency treatment, laser treatment and open surgical reconstructions are included, as well as useful diagnostic and treatment algorithms for the various conditions that are dealt with in the book. Clinical guidelines are provided in each chapter, together with evidence scores to help the reader assess the recommendations. The Handbook of Venous Disorders is written and edited by leaders and founding members of the American Venous Forum, a society dedicated to research, education and the clinical practice of venous and lymphatic diseases. The Handbook also includes several international authors, all of whom are experts in venous disease, most being regular or honorary members of the American Venous Forum.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
" … an essential reference for vascular surgeons and specialists in vascular medicine. The strength of this textbook is its completeness and the fact that the chapters are uniformly clear and well written."
—The New England Journal of Medicine

" ... provides a perfect resource for those embarking on research as well as for clinicians in everyday practice around the world. I cannot recommend this text too highly."
Annals of The Royal College of Surgeons of England

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Audrey Rosinberg, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This comprehensive study of venous and lymphatic disorders covers the epidemiology, diagnosis, and management of a wide spectrum of diseases and includes updates on emerging technologies and endovenous treatments that have rapidly transformed the field.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide evidence-based guidelines on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of venous and lymphatic disorders. Given the variety of therapies now available, it is important to have an objective and concise synopsis of the available literature.
Audience: This book is most appropriate for residents, vascular fellows, and any practitioners taking care of patients with venous disorders. This edition is the result of the collaborative efforts of international experts in venous and lymphatic disorders.
Features: The pathophysiology of venous and lymphatic disorders is covered in detail, as are the most up-to-date diagnostic tools. The book presents recommendations for the management of venous and lymphatic disorders including acute and chronic venous thrombosis and insufficiency, varicose veins, venous malformations, and lymphedema, as well as the evidence supporting them. Unique to this update is the addition of evidence-based clinical guidelines to each chapter together with evidence scores to help readers assess the strength of evidence and the strength of recommendations.
Assessment: This is an excellent reference for practitioners as well as students of venous diseases. It provides important updates from the second edition regarding endovenous therapies as well as the evidence supporting these new interventions. I strongly recommend this book.
