Lipodermatosclerosis may develop clinical aspects that have striking analogies with Van Gogh's style of painting cypresses. They may reveal specific physiopathological disorders and identify a homogeneous group of patients with chronic venous insufficiency.

Case 1 A 60-year-old African American man presented with a medical history of morbid obesity (weighing more than 550 lb), benign prostatic hyperplasia, hyperlipidemia, gynecomastia, atrial fibrillation, hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, psoriasis, sleep apnea, and cardiomegaly. His size has limited his ability to clean himself properly. He experiences chronic and recurrent skin irritation and cellulitis possibly secondary to intertriginous superinfection, lymphedema, and venous stasis. On examination, his abdomen showed heavy skinfolding with hyperpigmentation, cobblestone and velvety changes, thickening and fibrotic induration of the skin, focal areas of redness, and tenderness on palpation (Figure 1A and 1B)...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: To evaluate whether the outcome of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) treatment of great saphenous vein (GSV) incompetence may be predicted using strain-gauge plethysmography (SGP) with selective occlusion of the superficial venous system. METHODS: Seventeen patients (20 limbs) underwent endovenous RFA treatment for GSV incompetence (Clinical Etiology Anatomy Pathophysiology classification C2-C5; "C-group"). Duplex ultrasound (DUS) and SGP were performed with selective occlusion of superficial veins before and after RFA...

BACKGROUND: In the treatment of venous leg ulcers, vasoactive drugs such as diosmin hesperidin micronized purified flavonoids (DH), and recently sulodexide (SDX), have been used besides compression therapy and local measures. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether administering both drugs SDX and DH is better than DH alone in the treatment of venous ulcer. METHODS: In an open-label, observational, non-parallel trial, 70 patients with 90 venous ulcers were treated with multi-layer bandaging, local measures and DH, 37 patients (50 ulcers) also received SDX, 33 patients (40 ulcers) without SDX were the control group...

The presence of chronic venous insufficiency results in venous hypertension, which can lead to the development of venous leg ulceration. Patients often present with oedema of the lower limb and skin changes, for example, the presence of haemosiderin and lipodermatosclerosis, as well as ulceration. In some instances, patients can also develop atrophie blanche (AB)-white fibrotic areas on the skin adjacent to the ulcer. AB remains an ambiguous term owing to the use of many synonyms. Hence, health professionals need to be aware of the clinical presentation of AB and should be able to clearly differentiate between scarring caused by previous ulcers and that caused by the presence of AB...

Activation of the immune response during injury is a critical early event that determines whether the outcome of tissue restoration is regeneration or replacement of the damaged tissue with a scar. The mechanisms by which immune signals control these fundamentally different regenerative pathways are largely unknown. We have demonstrated that, during skin repair in mice, interleukin-4 receptor α (IL-4Rα)-dependent macrophage activation controlled collagen fibril assembly and that this process was important for effective repair while having adverse pro-fibrotic effects...

Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is the most advanced form of chronic venous disease (CVD), and is often associated with skin changes such as hyperpigmentation, eczema, lipodermatosclerosis and venous skin ulceration that cause discomfort, pain, sleep disturbances, absenteeism in the workplace, disability and deteriorated quality of life (QoL). The purpose of this study is to evaluate the prevalence of CVI and skin changes in patients who turn to Continuous Assistance Services due to the presence of disturbing symptoms of their condition...

Surgical treatment of severe varicose veins (CEAP classification : C4b-C6) should involve not only interruption of incompetent superficial veins to prevent venous regurgitation due to valve incompetence but also interruption of incompetent perforator veins. Subfascial endoscopic perforator vein surgery (SEPS) is performed via a small skin incision and involves interruption of perforator veins by the insertion of an endoscope into the subfascial space. SEPS produces good surgical outcomes: it is accurate in detecting and transecting perforator veins; has a low frequency of surgical wound complications; prevents lipodermatosclerosis and formation of pigmented skin lesions; and is minimally invasive compared with Linton's operation...

BACKGROUND: Lipodermatosclerosis (LDS) is a chronic fibrosing panniculitis associated with venous insufficiency. Although LDS is often a clinical diagnosis, it can be confused with other panniculitides. Microscopic examination is therefore essential to support the diagnosis in this condition. Histopathologic changes, however, have not been extensively defined. The purpose of this study was to characterize the histopathologic spectrum of this condition correlated with clinical manifestation...

OBJECTIVE: Patients with healed venous ulcers often experience recurrence of ulceration, despite the use of long-term compression therapy. This study examines the effect of closing incompetent perforating veins (IPVs) on ulcer recurrence rates in patients with progressive lipodermatosclerosis and impending ulceration. METHODS: Patients with nonhealing venous ulcers of >2 months' duration underwent duplex ultrasound to assess their lower extremity venous system for incompetence of superficial, perforating, and deep veins...

We compared skin and subcutaneous tissue strains in legs with lymphedema (LE) of varying severity and legs with lipodermatosclerosis (LDS) using real-time tissue elastography. Strain was assessed at the inner thigh and calf in 62 legs with LE (International Society of Lymphology [ISL] stage 0: 16, stage I: 5, stage II: 28, late stage II: 7, stage III: 6) and 15 legs with LDS. In thighs and calves with LE, skin strain and subcutaneous tissue strain did not significantly differ between ISL stage 0, that is, asymptomatic legs, and other stages...
