Venous Ulcers

One of the only books discussing new advances in venous ulcer therapy, Venous Ulcers provides a comprehensive look at the molecular biology and pathophysiology of venous ulcers. It discusses the many new treatments currently being used that offer non-invasive treatment options to patients with venous ulcerations. Leg ulcers are defined as a discontinuity of the epithelial surface; a local defect or excavation of the surface of the skin. Venous ulceration tends to take a number of months to heal followed by frequent relapse to further episodes. This work discusses the newest tools of patient investigation that have emerged in recent years that help to shorten patient recovery times and provide less invasive treatments.
