Venous disorders, while generally not life-threatening, affect millions worldwide, causing pain, disability and negatively impacting the lives of sufferers. Enormous advances have been made recently in treatments, providing minimally invasive solutions, increasing rates of success, low rates of morbidity and better care for a greater number of patients.
With contributions from experts in a number of specialties, this highly practical guide provides an understanding of the pathophysiology of venous disease and authoritative information on management, and details of all the current treatment options available to physicians. The new techniques and skills described in this book afford patients with venous disease healthier and more productive lives.
The Fundamentals of Phlebology is a valuable resource for all those involved in the field, including physicians from a variety of specialties, including dermatology, vascular surgery, and interventional radiology, also also for nursing staff, ultrasonographers, allied health professionals, and scientists.
The Editor, Helane Fronek MD, is a Fellow of the American College of Phlebology and the American College of Physicians, and has specialized since 1986 in the field of Phlebology, recently recognised by both the American Medical Association and American Ossteopathic Association as a distinct medical specialty field.
Praise for the Fifth Edition "The chemistry of phosphorus is so vast that it is extremely difficult to compress the important material into a single volume. Nonetheless Corbridge has managed to do this while at the same time making the material quite readable. The scope of the book is very broad, ranging from the extraction of phosphate rock to the role of palindromic sequences in DNA transcription, to metal complexes of P rings. The presentation includes a historical review which is useful and not belabored, but emphasizes fundamental synthetic transformations, structures, properties and applications." -Thomas B. Rauchfuss, in Journal of the American Chemical Society, 1996 "I have to conclude that not only does the book achieve good coverage but it also is well indexed, something very difficult for any author to achieve. Definitely recommended." -Simon Cotton, in Polyhedron, 1996 Praise for Previous Editions "...I do not know of any other monograph that covers the field of phosphorus chemistry so comprehensively in a single volume" - Angewandte Chemie "...There appears to be no other book that so comprehensively surveys the current state of inorganic, organic, & biological chemistry of phosphorus" -Journal of the American Chemical Society "1 highly recommend this book to the general chemical reader as a guide to a rapidly growing area of what has already developed into a major branch of chemistry. For an expert in the field of phosphorous chemistry it presents a fascinating overview, which is particularly valuable" -Journal of Inorganic and Nuclear Chemistry "...The frequent inserts and footnotes are bristling with information of all types and the same is true of the tables and the reaction schemes" -Nature "...a valuable contribution to the scientific literature" -Phosphorus & Potassium "...a fairly concise, yet remarkably comprehensive and well- referenced survey of all aspects of the chemistry of phosphorus" -Journal of Applied Crystallography "...this is a very useful book which should be on every phosphorus chemist's shelf" -Chemistry in Britain "The contents of this book will make it a standard reference for many years..." -United Trade Press Ltd "This is a superb scientific resource of interest to all those involved with phosphorus chemistry..." -Education in Chemistry "I feel this volume should be a standard addition to the laboratory of any chemist working directly in the field or around the periphery of phosphorus chemistry. There is probably no faster way to get acquainted with the vast world of phosphorus chemistry" -Journal of the American Chemical Society
