Since its initial publication nearly a decade ago, The Vein Book continues to serves as the ultimate comprehensive resource on venous disease. Upholding its reputation as the go-to reference for complete, authoritative, and up-to-date information about venous function and dysfunction, this second edition effectively bridges the gap between clinical medicine and basic science, suitable both for the seasoned surgeon as well as the medical student. The book is divided into five essential sections: basic considerations, primary superficial venous insufficiency, venous thromboembolism, chronic venous insufficiency, and congenital venous malformations. The book covers the entire spectrum of venous conditions from clarification of the pathophysiology of venous insufficiency, molecular mechanisms in the cause of varicose veins, new treatment options for varicose veins and spider veins, startling new treatment for venous thromboembolic disease, and effective treatment for leg ulcers.
More user-friendly and encyclopedic than ever, The Vein Book is still a must-have for vascular surgeons, phlebologists, interventional radiologists, research scientists, epidemiologists, and surgeons at all levels.

This continues to be the go-to book for venous disease. This second edition is complete with up-to-date, evidence-based information on medical therapy, minimally invasive and surgical procedures, and other aspects of treatment. The tables, diagrams, illustrations, and photographs make for a very helpful addendum to the detailed but easy-to-read text. This is a must-read for vascular trainees who might not get much exposure to venous disease in their training
programs. And it should be included in libraries of anyone taking care of patients with venous disease. * Doody's Notes *
