On a Sunday afternoon almost six months ago, we were deeply moved by the news that our Krešimir is no longer with us. The sad news spread from Sarajevo with the speed only most horrible and saddest news can achieve. And everybody who was reached by these news wondered whether it was possible and whether it was true. Because our professor Kostović left us a day before his 48th birthday. Krešimir Kostović was born on the 16th October 1969 in Zagreb, where he completed primary and secondary education. He enrolled at the University of Zagreb School of Medicine in 1988, and got his medical degree in 1995...

BACKGROUND: The onset of bruising in surgery is a frequent event that can be a source of complications and delays in the patient's healing process (pigmentations, fibrosis, etc.). Having the help of an effective topical product that speeds up the resorption of blood extravasation can be an advantage in phlebological surgery and surgery in general. METHODS: 23 patients both male and female (age range: 30-72 years) were enrolled. 22 of them completed the study, all underwent venous surgery of the lower extremities (invagination stripping of the internal or external saphenous and Muller's ambulatory phlebectomy)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim was to investigate the pathogenesis of telangiectatic matting (TM) and identify possible risk factors. METHODS: This study had two parts. The clinical records of consecutive patients were retrospectively analysed to identify risk factors for TM. In the second part, the haemostatic and coagulation profile of the subset of patients with TM were analysed and compared with controls using standard coagulation tests, platelet function and a global assay of coagulation (rotational thromboelastometry, ROTEM)...

Objective Telangiectasias of the lower legs are intradermal dilatations of the subpapillary venous plexus, but their pathophysiology and risk factors are still largely unknown. The purpose of this review is to summarize the current knowledge on the pathophysiology and risk factors for telangiectasias. Methods A systematic review of the literature indexed in Medline completed with textbooks and European phlebology journals from the French, Swiss, and German phlebology societies was performed. Results A multitude of risk factors and several pathophysiological hypotheses, such as reflux, arterio-venous micro-shunts, parietal, and connective tissue abnormalities, are described in the literature...

BACKGROUND: If compression bandaging is not performed in a professional manner, the objectives of the therapy may not be achieved and side effects or complications may result. OBJECTIVES: This cross-sectional observational survey examines the handling of the treatment options: short-stretch bandages with padding, multicomponent compression systems, and adaptive compression bandages. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: During several training sessions on the topic of compression therapy, 137 participants performed compression bandagings on each other...

Objectives To assess the current use of safety checklists among the American College of Phlebology (ACP) members and their interest in implementing a checklist supported by the ACP on their clinical practices; and to develop a phlebology safety checklist. Method Online surveys were sent to ACP members, and a phlebology safety checklist was developed by a multispecialty team through the ACP Leadership Academy. Results Forty-seven percent of respondents are using a safety checklist in their practices; 23% think that a phlebology safety checklist would interfere or disrupt workflow; 79% answered that a phlebology safety checklist could improve procedure outcomes or prevent complications; and 85% would be interested in implementing a phlebology safety checklist approved by the ACP...

Monitoring of perfusion is a cornerstone in surgery, phlebology and basic science to proof wound healing by interventions. In chronic wound management it is of utmost importance to realize and parametrize wound bed perfusion to verify actual, and plan further treatment by noninvasive diagnostics. Up to now monitoring is based on visual inspection of wounds as conventionally practiced over more than decades. The main problems of visual inspection are the lack of standardization and comparability because of interindividual variations...

Objective To obtain consensus on management criteria for symptomatic patients with chronic venous disease (CVD; C2-C6) and superficial venous reflux. Method We used a Delphi method by means of 36 statements sent by email to experts in the field of phlebology across the world over the course of three rounds. The statements addressed criteria for different venous treatments in patients with different characteristics (e.g. extensive comorbidities, morbid obesity and peripheral arterial disease). If at least 70% of the ratings for a specific statement were between 6 and 9 (agreement) or between 1 and 3 (disagreement), experts' consensus was reached...

The present, revised guidelines on lipedema were developed under the auspices of and funded by the German Society of Phlebology (DGP). The recommendations are based on a systematic literature search and the consensus of eight medical societies and working groups. The guidelines contain recommendations with respect to diagnosis and management of lipedema. The diagnosis is established on the basis of medical history and clinical findings. Characteristically, there is a localized, symmetrical increase in subcutaneous adipose tissue in arms and legs that is in marked disproportion to the trunk...

Objective The goal of this American College of Phlebology Patient Reported Outcome Venous Registry analysis was to examine the clinical efficacy of compression stockings using short-form 6D questionnaire (SF-6D). Method SF-6D scores were modeled over time using linear mixed effects model. Changes of SF-6D score from baseline to the last encounter were examined using a paired t-test. Analysis of variance was used to compare changes from baseline in SF-6D scores between C classifications. All analyses were conducted using SAS software, version 9...

BACKGROUND: Medical compression therapy is widely used to treat phlebologic diseases. Compression bandages as well as compression stockings are used. Compression has been identified to be an effective conservative therapy for the healing of venous ulcers and other indications. Thus, the evidence for the use of medical compression therapy and for which indications is presented. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Review and systematic presentation of the evidence-based use of compression...

BACKGROUND: Post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) arises in 20-50% of patients who have sustained a deep vein thrombosis and markedly impairs their quality of life. METHODS: This review is based on pertinent publications retrieved by a selective literature search in PubMed and the Cochrane Library, and on the guidelines of the German Societies of Phlebology and Vascular Surgery ( Deutsche Gesellschaft für Phlebologie, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Gefässchirurgie ). RESULTS: The treatment options are conservative treatment with compression and patient exercises, endovascular recanalization with stent angioplasty, and open bypass surgery of the iliac obstructions...
