Varicose Veins and Related Disorders focuses on the valvular incompetence in the superficial veins. It evaluates the widespread valve failure in superficial and deep veins. It addresses the congenital venous disorders and the complication of superficial vein incompetence and varicose veins. Some of the topics covered in the book are the differential diagnosis and treatment of edema of the lower limb; acute and subacute deep vein thrombosis in the lower limb; venous and other vascular disorders affecting the upper limb; and role of perforator. The book discusses vascular factors in the management of leg ulcers and the interrelationship of venous disorders with ischemia and other conditions. It also tackles the surgical treatment of superficial vein incompetence; the functional phlebography in venous disorders of the lower limbs; and valveless syndrome and weak vein syndrome. The book can provide useful information to doctors, vascular surgeons, students, and researchers.
