Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This straightforward and practical book is the one to read if you are starting or contemplating starting to perform sclerotherapy in your practice as a dermatologist. The different types of sclerosing solution are covered, along with the pros and cons of each one. Separate chapters are devoted to large and small veins, and the authors share tips on how to maximize results and minimize complications. Procedures such as phlebectomy, endovenous ablation, laser, and intense pulsed light are also reviewed, but sclerotherapy gets the most comprehensive coverage. An abundance of color photographs illustrates the injection techniques and how to assess venous anatomy using ultrasound/color duplex Doppler. For the most part, these are of very good quality.
Purpose: The book is intended to provide current and practical knowledge on the removal techniques for varicose veins and spider telangiectasias. The material is presented well and the authors accomplish their goals.
Audience: Dermatologists performing sclerotherapy in their practice who are interested in refining their knowledge and techniques are the intended audience.
Features: The discussion of how to properly apply compression bandages is well done and illustrated step by step in accompanying photos. Practical advice on how to structure the consent form for these procedures and how to treat complications is nicely presented. Numerous shaded tables summarize clinical points of treatment. The chapter on how to equip your office for sclerotherapy is very helpful. The authors' preferences for specific manufacturers, needle specifications, storage precautions for sclerosing solutions, etc., are covered. I like how the book focuses on how to perform sclerotherapy while covering the major considerations: patient selection and evaluation, side-effects of treatment, treating complications, and the nuances in learning sclerotherapy.
Assessment: This book is beneficial for seasoned phlebologists and dermatologists wishing to learn sclerotherapy. It does not overwhelm readers with exhaustive discussions of all the research upon which these recommendations are based. I appreciate the authors sharing their expertise and making sclerotherapy more fun to perform, leading to better results for our patients.
