A Colour Atlas of Venous Disease

Front Cover
Manson Publishing Limited, Jan 6, 2003 - Medical - 112 pages

Incidence of venous diseases is becoming more and more frequent. An increasing number of people suffer from varicose veins, chronic venous stasis and, as a result, venous ulcers. Therefore, it is becoming more important for physicians and surgeons to make an accurate and early diagnosis of weaknesses in the vein wall, and to effect and monitor the care plan.

A Colour Atlas of Venous Disease serves the needs of a wide range of professionals by reinforcing diagnostic skills and suggesting effective management tools. Through an array of colour photographs, x-rays, drawings, and practical text, the book covers the basic anatomy, the different types of varices, the clinical stages of chronic venous stasis, and inflammatory venous changes.
