Special Issue "New Perspectives in Phlebology and Lymphology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2021).
Venous and lymphatic diseases are extremely diffused in the general population, with a broad spectrum that ranges from tiny telangiectasias and varices to venous ulcers, thromboembolisms, and lymphedemas, to name just a few.
The pathophysiology and diagnostics of veins and lymphatics are currently undergoing a significant reappraisal due to the most recent scientific updates. Similarly, new evidence-based treatments are regularly being proposed for varicose vein disease, deep and superficial vein thrombosis, leg venous ulcer, and lymphedema and its complications.
In view of this re-assessment of our phlebolymphology knowledge, we welcome innovative science-backed cultural contributions that expand the horizons of these interesting medical disciplines. Venous and lymphatic components play an important role in most chronic degenerative diseases and, more generally, in biomedical science; hence, a translational medicine approach is also favored.
In this Special Issue, it is our intention to present a collection of pertinent, stimulating, and visionary articles containing scientific proposals on the basic science and diagnostics of, and treatments for, venous and lymphatic diseases. We particularly welcome high-level original research articles that shed light on future research directions in phlebology and lymphology. Ultimately, this Special Issue represents a unique opportunity to disseminate innovative scientific contributions via a high-level journal to a great number of clinicians worldwide.
