The Handbook of Venous Disorders, first published in 1996, is a handbook for all clinicians and surgeons who are involved with the investigation, evaluation, or management of venous and lymphatic diseases or malformations. These disorders include varicose veins, venous ulcers, DVT, lymphedema, and pulmonary embolism, as well as damage to the veins through trauma or tumor growth. The new edition has been completely updated to bring the book in line with current teaching practices.
Now in its third edition, the Handbook of Venous Disorders continues to provide comprehensive and up-to-date information on acute and chronic venous and lymphatic diseases and malformations and to discuss the latest knowledge on epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical evaluation, diagnostic imaging, medical, endovascular and surgical management. This revised, updated and expanded edition takes account of all the recent developments in these areas. New chapters on, for example, foam sclerotherapathy, radiofrequency treatment, laser treatment and open surgical reconstructions are included, as well as useful diagnostic and treatment algorithms for the various conditions that are dealt with in the book. Clinical guidelines are provided in each chapter, together with evidence scores to help the reader assess the recommendations. The Handbook of Venous Disorders is written and edited by leaders and founding members of the American Venous Forum, a society dedicated to research, education and the clinical practice of venous and lymphatic diseases. The Handbook also includes several international authors, all of whom are experts in venous disease, most being regular or honorary members of the American Venous Forum.
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.
This new book on vascular malformations brings together international experts to present advances and discuss controversies in the multidisciplinary management of patients with congenital vascular malformations. Major advances in recent years in medical genetics, and tremendous progress in the fields of imaging and minimally invasive percutaneous interventions have revolutionized both evaluation and management of vascular malformations. The six major parts of this state of the art book ensure that the reader has the most up to date valuable clinical information to ensure the delivery of world class clinical practice. Beautifully illustrated with color line drawings, numerous photographs and informative tables, the advances and controversies of the full spectrum of vascular malformations are presented in 90 definitive chapters.

The second edition of this book serves as a central source of theoretical and practical knowledge to optimize the evaluation and treatment of patients with lymphedema. The book covers all aspects of the disease from anatomical and histological features to diagnosis as well as physical/medical and surgical management of the disease. Updated from the first edition to reflect the substantial progress in diagnostics, medical care and surgical intervention for this patient population, this volume has been reorganized to meet today’s practice requirements. It addresses the challenges faced by clinicians in the management of chronic lymphedema enabling them to meet the medical needs of this large patient community. Edited by world leaders in Vascular Medicine and Surgery, this comprehensive volume provides clear, concise background and recommendations in an easy-to-use format. It is a valuable reference tool for clinical practitioners (physicians/nurse practitioners/technicians) who wish to deliver state-of-the-art health care to their patients with lymphatic and venous disorders.
Provides senior surgical trainees with a concise learning and revision source, and the practicing surgeon with an update in vascular and endovascular surgery. The volume gives a current summary of the key topics within the specialty and concentrates on recent developments. As in the previous edition, evidence-based practice is indicated where appropriate - icons are used throughout the books to highlight sections of text and key references which are considered to be associated with reasonable evidence, i.e. are supported by randomized clinical trials, systematic literature reviews, meta-analysis or observational studies.
Presents the account of the use of mechanical ventilation in critically ill patients. This title features coverage that addresses important scientific, clinical, and technical aspects of the field as well as chapters that encompass the full scope of mechanical ventilation, including the physical basis of mechanical ventilation.
This text provides a clinical overview of the diagnosis of hereditary diseases of the skin, hair, and mucous membranes. Key features and references for a wide variety of hereditary skin disorders are presented in a convenient format. Each disease is discussed according to its symptoms; clinical findings found in the skin, mucous membranes, hair, nails or teeth; non-skin findings; epidemiology; pathophysiology; comparison/contrast to related diseases; treatment and prognosis, mnemonics to assist in memorization of important facts; and references.
Designed for quick reference by the busy student, resident, or practitioner, the Schwartz Handbook is now completely up-to-date and referenced to the seventh edition of Principles of Surgery.
