Dr. Almeida’s Textbook on Endovascular Venous Surgery
Advances in the field of endovascular venous surgery created the stimulus for a Second Edition of this material under the editorship of Jose Almeida following the enthusiastic reception of the first edition in 2011. This field is undergoing rapid development in breadth and depth for both diagnosis and treatment of venous disorders. These changes include new techniques and refinements of established procedures that are best expressed by the visual display afforded in the atlas format. The presentations allow the practitioner to grasp subtleties that are often poorly appreciated through descriptive formats limited to the written word.
The need for this atlas presentation is dictated by the requirement for accuracy in transmitting critical details of technique that are best understood by a visual presentation to supplement the written word. Just as we understand that the training of the surgeon requires clinical experience in addition to academic understanding, so there is the need for visual understanding of the technical steps that are the key to performing successful procedures in open and minimally invasive endovascular surgery. The strength of the atlas is that it displays technical procedures in visual steps, and in many instances there are videos with audio to link the key steps into a full presentation of the procedure. The picture supplemented by the written explanation provides the nearest thing to the real-time experience of watching or participating in a technical operation.
Dr. Almeida has chosen recognized experts to join him in detailing the intricacies of successful technique in the various fields of endovascular procedures. The range of subjects covers the active endovascular field at this time, making it safe to predict this atlas will address a basic need for those who are working in the endovascular field.

The International Vein Congress (IVC) was created 13 years ago to educate professionals in the management of venous disease using these new devices. At the recent 12th Annual IVC held in South Beach we saw 700 registrants from 26 countries around the globe converge in Miami, eager to receive intensive education in the management of venous disorders. Because 3-4 days of intensive education no longer does the venous field justice, VeinGlobal was created for additional online education 365 days a year.
