Leg Ulcers

The first edition of Leg Ulcers by David Negus was published in 1991. Since then, developments in the management of venous disorders and, in particular, of venous ulceration, have continued apace. Prominent among these has been the development of duplex ultrasound scanning, which now enables the diagnosis and treatment of venous ulceration to be undertaken with a sound knowledge of the underlying anatomy. Treatment options now include PIN stripping of the long saphenous vein, endoscopic perforating vein interruption and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy. All of these developments, and more, are covered in this comprehensive guide to the management of this unpleasant and often socially unacceptable disorder. The book covers a wide diversity of subjects with authority and detail, including the relationship between venous ulcers and primary venous insufficiency as well as post-thrombotic syndrome, risk factors for deep vein thrombosis, recent advances in wound healing and microcirculatory changes in venous ulceration.Written by a team of internationally recognised experts, this third edition of Leg Ulcers contains comprehensive reviews of the relevant literature and provides advice for those faced with difficult diagnostic and therapeutic problems, whatever their clinical setting.
