Understanding varicose veins and venous leg ulcers is important to everyone who has venous problems in their family. The underlying cause of varicose veins and venous leg ulcers is venous reflux in the majority of cases.
“The book that changed my world view! And what’s even better – it is written just for the patient, not so much for the doctor. Less than 100 page of pure joy of discovery!”
– Dr. Veronika Palmiste, Consultant Vascular Surgeon.
With about 1 in 3 adults having varicose veins or “hidden varicose veins”, there are a great number of people who will find the simple diagrams and explanations in this book very useful in deciding on whether to have treatment – and who they should have to treat them.
Understanding Venous Reflux explains:
Once you have read Understanding Venous Reflux, you will know whether you are being fully investigated and offered a full treatment when you see a doctor or clinic about you varicose veins, thread veins or leg ulcers.
You will soon understand why having a specialist vascular technologist performing your venous duplex scan is so essential to getting a good outcome.
You will also realise that docotrs or clinics not offering pelvic vein embolisation and perforator vein closure (TRLOP) as part of their regular treatments, are unlikely to get as good long term results as those that do.
