The most comprehensive online collection of scientific resources on phebology and compression therapy.
Originally initiated by Dr. Robert Stemmer, SIGVARIS founded the Stemmer Library in 2001 under the auspices of the International Union of Phlebology. The library was first based on the book “Compression Therapy of the Extremities”, co-written by Professor Hugo Partsch, Professor Eberhard Rabe and Dr. Robert Stemmer. It was published in 1999 and already contained over 1200 medical references on compression therapy.
Over the years, the Stemmer Library has been regularly updated with the latest scientific publications by a group of world-renowned experts in phlebology. Today, this unique medical library features over 4000 references. SIGVARIS is proud to offer this knowledge to the medical community through a newly developed online library where people can find the knowledge they need to serve their patients as best as possible.
SIGVARIS also expresses special thanks to the editors who granted us permission to reproduce selected abstracts of articles published in their journals, especially: La Société Française de Phlébologie, Sage Publications, Verlag Hans Huber, Schattauer GmbH, Edizioni Minerva, HMP Communications, RCN Publishing Company, Thieme Publishers, Mark Allen Group.
