Description

One of the only books discussing new advances in venous ulcer therapy, Venous Ulcers provides a comprehensive look at the molecular biology and pathophysiology of venous ulcers. It discusses the many new treatments currently being used that offer non-invasive treatment options to patients with venous ulcerations.

Key Features

  • Leg ulcers are defined as a discontinuity of the epithelial surface; a local defect or excavation of the surface of the skin.
  • Venous ulceration tends to take a number of months to heal followed by frequent relapse to further episodes.
  • This work discusses the newest tools of patient investigation that have emerged in recent years that help to shorten patient recovery times and provide less invasive treatments
