The focus of the 2009 edition of the book was on basic subjects like anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology and diagnostic techniques for chronic venous disease. In 2010 five very important issues are addressed, namely: the treatment of deep venous thrombosis, the relevance
of superficial thrombophlebitis and its relation with deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, the issue if venous disease evaluates as an ascending or descending pathology, if venous reflux time or reflux volume-flow is the key to evaluating the severity of venous pathology and last but certainly not least the possible treatment options for lymph edema. The pros and cons for thrombus removal and its importance in the treatment of deep venous thrombosis, the ascending or descending etiology of venous disease and the relevance of reflux time or reflux volume-flow are also discussed. This book is written for all healthcare workers in the field of venous disease like vascular surgeons, dermatologists, phlebologists, vascular technicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
