What is included with this book?


This practical how-to guide explains and illustrates the most effective sclerotherapy techniques, beginning with the approach to the patient with varicose or telangiectatic veins and what to look for during the initial physical exam. The chapters then present up-to-date coverage on anatomy, non-invasive texting, and basic concepts and methods of treating varicose, varicosed reticular, and teangiectatic veins. The book also discuses how to minimize complications, how to treat varicose veins by leg region, and alternatives to sclerotherapy as well as performing sclerotherapy on body areas other than the legs.
