Understanding Venous Reflux

Understanding Venous Reflux - The cause of varicose veins and venous leg ulcers

By Professor Mark Whiteley

Almost one in two people suffer from venous problems in their legs - whether it be varicose veins, "hidden varicose veins", thread veins, swollen or aching legs or venous leg ulcers.

Understanding Venous Reflux – the cause of varicose veins and venous leg ulcers” is an essential book for anyone who has any interests in venous disorders of the legs - patient or health professional alike.

Written in clear language and with easy to follow diagrams, this book can be read by anyone with a basic understanding of biology, but the understanding it gives makes it an essential read for anyone who treats veins in any way at all - thread vein treatments, varicose veins or leg ulcers.

Although simple to follow, it will shock many professionals who think that they have a deep understanding of venous disease and will help non-professionals make informed decisions about their investigations and treatments.

My only real complaint would be bad editing. Very good review of venous disease for someone getting into the study.

5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding venous reflux 1 Aug 2012
By IDMansell
Format:Paperback
Im a Tissue Viabilty nurse and was recommended this book by a vascular consultant at a conference in Manchester. I've been teaching district nurses and care home staff how to assess & manage venous leg ulcers for over 15 years. Part of the course includes pathophysiology of venous disease being a great believer in treat the cause not the symptom. That's been blown out of the water by the revelations in this book. It's easy and concise to read with good systematic approach to understanding venous reflux. "venous hypertension" becoming an obsolete term is initially difficult to assimilate, but the clarity of the text and research appears irrefutable. Although judging from the book there are still those out there who prefer to do just that. Chapeter 7 &8 are the clinchers and worthy of careful analysis . The preceding chapters lead you in with simple explanation of the venous system and how it functions. Good use of simple diagrams support and consolidate the text. Some of the myths associated with venous hypertension are also refuted. Male vs female incidence obesity & pregnancy are disputed aswell as other established so called facts precipitating venous disease. I would recommend this book as does the author if you're any way involved in dealing with patients with venous ulcers both to correctly inform your patients and support staff in the assessment and management of venous leg ulcers. "once a leg ulcer patient always a leg ulcer patient" but not it would appear with venous hypertension but with venous reflux
