Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: 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.
