Venous Ulcers Excerpt :

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. 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

Microcirculation in Chronic Venous Insufficiency Excerpt :

TThis volume contains expert articles on the physiology and function of the microvascular and microlymphatic systems, the physiology of microvascular fluid filtration and reabsorption, interactions between blood cells and the microvascular endothelium, and molecular mechanisms of leukocyte activation. The therapeutic goals in chronic venous insufficiency include reduction of postischemic leukocyte-endothelial cell interaction, repair of microvascular barrier and improvement of microlymphatic drainage. In addition to measures to counteract inflammatory reactions elicited by local ischemia, surgical procedures such as transplantation of lymph vessels and subfascial division of perforating veins by an endoscopic approach are reviewed. Written by leading experts in the field, this book provides the first synopsis of the role of microcirculatory disturbances in chronic venous insufficiency. It will be of particular interest to phlebologists, angiologists, dermatologists, gerontologists, vascular, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, and general physicians.
