The Editors of the Web-based publication: Dr. Michael C. Dalsing, MD and Gary W. Lemmon, MD (chapter adaptations by Kellie R. Brown, Teresa L. Carman, Raghu Motaganahalli, Gary W. Lemmon, Michael C. Dalsing)
The text of one of the most comprehensive textbooks on venous disorders has been adapted and rewritten in 20 chapters in layman's terms for easy understanding. The Editors of the Web- based publication, Dr. Michael C. Dalsing and Dr. Gary W. Lemmon, had two goals in mind: increase awareness of venous disease and educate the American public and our patients with acute and chronic venous disorders. The publication provides essential information on the cause, presentation and up-to-date management of venous diseases. Considerable new data are available on prevention and treatment of blood clots, leg swelling, varicose veins and venous ulcers. The chapters, designed specifically for the web, are concise, easy to read, provide clear images, and each includes a section for frequently asked questions. Scan the Index or enter a key word, such as "varicose," in the search box above to instantly find answers to your questions.
