Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael C. Dalsing, MD (Indiana University School of Medicine)
Description: This book is divided into three major topics: varicose veins and venous disorders; acute deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism; and the swollen limb and lymphatic problems.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe patterns of venous and lymphatic disorder based on a knowledge of normal function; to provide the reader with a precise method of recognizing (diagnosing) any problems; and to provide the reader an understanding of appropriate therapeutic interventions as required. The rapid explosion of improved imaging techniques has provided a firm, anatomic, and hemodynamic description of these disorders and was the impetus for writing this book at the present time.
Audience: The audience is appropriately described as established surgeons desiring a refresher course, surgeons in training, nonsurgical phlebologists, and nurses who care for patients with venous and lymphatic disorders.
Features: The features of this book truly set it apart from others on similar topics. It is richly and effectively illustrated with clinical pictures, venograms, artists' renditions, and boxes highlighting important information. The references are up-to-date and relevant to the material covered. The context page and index are helpful sources for quick reference.
Assessment: This book is pleasant and informative to read especially because of the well-illustrated and well-palced clinical correlates. Although some topics are simplified to provide a cohesive clinical description, the authors did attempt to provide a comprehensive presentation of each problem. This book is a must for the reference library and teacher, and a welcome reference for the physician who wishes to revisit venous and lymphatic diseases and their diagnosis and treatment. The ardent venous surgeon would find this book lacking in the description of some innovative diagnostic studies and therapeutic interventions.
