Guidelines of the American Venous Forum
editore: Hodder Arnold
Since the publication of the first edition five years ago, substantial new information has emerged in many areas of acute and chronic venous disease, on venous malformations and lymphatic disorders. This revised, updated and expanded edition takes account of these developments and provides comprehensive and up-to-date information on epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical evaluation, diagnostic imaging, medical, endovascular and surgical management. New chapters on reporting standards and outcome analysis and a new report of the American Venous Forum Research Committee on basic and clinical research in venous and lymphatic disease are also included. A key feature of this book is the integration of surgical, endovascular and medical therapies helping to make it an essential reference source on the diagnosis and treatment of venous and lymphatic diseases. The book is authored by founding members of the American Venous Forum; a society dedicated to research, education and the clinical practice of venous and lymphatic diseases. This edition includes several international authors, all expert in venous disease, most being regular or honorary members of the American Venous Forum.
The book is primarily intended for medical students, house officers, residents and fellows in vascular surgery, interventional radiology, vascular and internal medicine, cardiology, phlebology and dermatology. It will also be of great interest to physicians, surgeons, vascular laboratory technologists and vascular nurses who are involved in the investigation, evaluation or management of venous and lymphatic diseases or malformations. The manual is for medical students, house officers, fellows in vascular surgery, radiology or vascular medicine, and all physicians and surgeons who participate in the evaluation and treatment of venous or lymphatic disease. This revised second edition is expanded and fully up-to-date, reflecting modern advances in vascular diagnosis and therapy.
