  • Veins and Lymphatics

    Veins and Lymphatics is an international, Open Access peer-reviewed journal which publishes scientific papers about venous and lymphatic diseases. Open issues and debates about epidemiology, anatomy, pathophysiology, etiology, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of vein and lymphatic diseases are constantly present in our project. A "transversal" vision of phlebology and lymphology is privileged, without preconception or barriers. Aiming at enhancing phlebolymphology culture diffusion worldwide, on a free access basis, Veins and Lymphatics wants to exploit internet capabilities for a large, quick and low-cost dissemination of educational and research inputs. Many specialties without one leading, are involved in this field of interest; we will try to encourage the clever connections between them for mutual advantage. A constant evolution has characterized Phlebology and Lymphology in the last decades so that “truisms” have been revised and criticized (see dogma of saphenectomy with junction high ligation). Novelties seem to come from different corners of the world, from doctors who are part of the scientific establishment, but also from those who have enough courage to break the conventional concepts. This journal will represent a medium for the rapid diffusion of these new ideas, on the basis of sound data and speculations. Nonetheless, “the new” advances whereas it is based on older fundaments, so we are not going to forget the strength of traditions and we will keep attention on the past acquisitions, to gain experience and impulse or, why not, to learn from others’ and our errors. 


    Veins and Lymphatics publishes original articles, editorials, reviews, short reports and case reports, as well as invited commentaries.
