New York/Stuttgart – Chronic venous disease is a common condition, with a prevalence as high as 50 per cent in industrialized countries worldwide. Of those, about 20 to 25 per cent of women and 10 to 15 per cent of men have visible varicose veins. Varicose vein treatment has become an increasingly multidisciplinary field, and one that has seen cutting-edge advances and significant growth.

Felipe B. Collares, Salomao Faintuch, and a team of venous disease experts have compiled Varicose Veins, a concise book that covers the full range of interventional procedures for venous insufficiency. Following introductory chapters on anatomy and pathophysiology, the authors guide readers through the clinical exam, imaging, compression therapy, and various minimally invasive techniques. Highly practical and an affordable alternative to larger published tomes.

Key Highlights:

  • Step-by-step guide on core venous interventions – from compression therapy to sclerotherapy – ambulatory phlebectomy to endovascular ablation
  • Illustrations delineate anatomy and specific treatment modalities
  • Clinical pearls on patient safety and preventing complications
  • Discussion of emerging endovascular approaches that do not require administration of tumescent anaesthesia

This handy resource is a must-have for trainees and veteran physicians. The practical and focused layout provides a well-rounded reference for all specialists who perform varicose vein procedures – interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons, phlebologists, cardiologists, and dermatologists.
