This book provides a "how I do it" approach to superficial venous disease. The underlying theme is that a wide variety of therapeutic options are available for varicose veins and telangiectasias. This is likely due to the fact that the book is written by clinicians from different disciplines including surgery, dermatology, and radiology. The authors also come from a broad geographic base including the United States, England, Australia, the Netherlands, Canada, Germany, Sweden, France, and Colombia. Unfortunately, this results in redundancy in some areas of the text and leaves the reader confused on issues where conflicting dogmas are advocated.
