MedicalScienceBooks.com Medical Book Review:
This new 5th edition of Sclerotherapy: Treatment of Varicose and
Telangiectatic Leg Veins, is an extremely well planned, inclusive, and
extremely well illustrated guide to identifying, managing, and the
various treatment methods used for both the medical and cosmetic issues
of varicose and telangiectatic leg veins. Also included in the
text is a brief history of treatment, which is quite interesting and
sometimes humorous, as well as a section on what you need to set up your
own sclerotherapy practice.
The additional value of the DVD-ROM content (listed below) and
having access to the full text with bonus features available online,
makes this particular text a home run. Highly recommended.
