Text book varicose veins and venous reflux - by Mark Whiteley

Mark Whiteley has just finished a new text book which explains how leg veins work - and is looking for a publisher to publish it. It includes:

- the new understanding as to why varicose veins, venous eczema and leg ulcers occur
- the underlying cause for leg thread veins as well as varicose veins other venous conditions
- the rationale for the new treatments

This text book includes new concepts that have only been identified in the last few years - and it explains why so many of the "old" ideas of varicose veins are wrong - such as:

- Why varicose veins are NOT just cosmetic
- Why pregnancy DOES NOT cause varicose veins
- Why some tests doctor use do NOT show venous problems - even when they are there
- Why VENOUS HYPERTENSION doesn't actually exist

It explains for the first time:

- "Phase 1 and phase 2 passive reflux"
- Active reflux
- The "double whammy effect"

There are over 50 figures to make understanding easy - so that everyone who is interested in veins - doctors, nurses, medical students, therapists and beauticians - can all learn things that will help them in their everyday approach to venous problems - whether it be assessing varicose veins, treating thread veins or diagnosing leg ulcers and skin discolouration.

This book will be the first in a series of books covering the whole of phlebology. When a publisher is found and the book is widely available, it will be announced here.
