About this book


Professor George Fegan is a world authority on the use of sclerotherapy for the treatment of varicose veins. His technique for injecting varicose veins is regarded by many to be the best method for achieving success with sclerotherapy. Professor Fegan first published his method in 1963. This book is an update to his previous work and describes his method step by step as well as relevant information on the anatomy, physiology, pathology and investigations of varicose veins. Sclerotherapy is finding its place as an effective weapon in the phlebologist's armamentarium, and its indications are becoming clearer. All involved in the care of patients with venous disease will find this an invaluable read.
