"Phlebology has always been one of those branches of medicine that are most suited to a mechanism where a wealth of knowledge is transmitted directly from teacher to student. If this has often been the only dynamic in the past, today's knowledge has evolved to such an extent that the phlebologist must acquire a series of particular skills to truly be effective.
In fact, the modern phlebologist must be able to perform echo-color doppler diagnostics, be able to perform echo-guided treatments and to place intravenous fibers or catheters. Moreover the phlebologist must comprehend haemodynamics, how to make compression and ulcer therapy in an impeccable way, in short, he must be able to take charge of the phlebological patient in its entirety and in a timely manner. Ultimately, this means having to be constantly updated on the state of the art and on the knowledge that, in modern medicine, is changing more and more rapidly.There has for some time been a need for a focused phlebology handbook that reflects current knowledge and could serve as a comprehensive reference for both seasoned and young entusiastic doctors who find fascination in this subject. This volume reveals an in-depth discussion of the major phlebological themes, the result of a collaboration with many of the most important Italian phlebologists. We tried to use a clear language and to give space for the practical elements in order to make it a tool for daily use.
We have compiled an extraordinary collection of quality iconography (which the reader will also find in the web space using the QR code inserted in the pages of each chapter) and to include simplified tables and diagrams. In thanking all those who have collaborated on the work and particularly to my friend Marlin Schul MD for caring the english edition, I wish you a good reading."
