Venous Diseases in Pregnancy – Guidelines for Professionals
Dear doctors, my colleagues and I have tried to provide a set of practical information on the important diseases such as DVT in the pregnancy, and also the common diseases such as the varices for a year.
. References have been mainly selected among the newest guidelines articles and the valid sources. The mentioned set has been reviewed by Professor Eklof, the head of the varicose forum of Europe; he is a valid famous person in the varicose diseases. The target group is primarily comprised of the obstetricians; it is secondly used by the consultants including the anaesthetists.Venous thromboembolism is the most common cause of the mothers` death in the developed countries; varicose disease is also the most common manifestation of the coronary diseases in women. So I hope to see this book useful for treating patients in case of necessity.The doctors can call Ms. Valipoor, the clinic secretary for providing the free book. I am waiting for your comments and suggestions for improving the book in the next publications. Doctor. Mehrdad AqdasiLet`s take a brief look at some of the contents of the book
