Understanding Venous Reflux - the cause of Varicose Veins and Venous Leg Ulcers
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.
Mark Whiteley introduced "keyhole surgery for varicose veins" into the UK by performing the first VNUS Closure in the UK on 12th March 1999. He can rightfully be called "The Father of Office Based Surgery (or Keyhole Surgery) for Varicose Veins in the UK.
He has subsequently moved on from VNUS to introducing EVLA, RFiTT, Foam Sclerotherapy and other office-based vein surgery techniques to The Whiteley Clinic and has developed a protocol for using the optimal treatment in the optimal veins and, when more than one treatment is required, the optimal sequence of techniques. This protocol is called The Whiteley Protocol.
