The purpose of the study was to optimize the technique of removing the trunk of the great saphenous vein (GSV) in patients over 60 years. The study included a total of eighty-five patients aged over 60 years and presenting with primary varicose veins of the lower limbs and undergoing operations performed on the superficial venous system, including all stages of classical phlebectomy - crossectomy, stripping of the GSV, removal of tributaries and ligation of incompetent perforant veins. The patients were divided into two groups: the Study Group (n=44) patients endured removal of the GSV with the use of the technique of temporal tamponing of the canal, while in Group Two patients, composing a comparison group (n=41), the GSV was removed without the use of a tampon...

BACKGROUND: Treating great and small saphenous vein trunk insufficiency with cyanoacrylate glue is the least taxing treatment method of all available techniques. Due to long-term unavailability of commercial kits with n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (histoacryl) in the Czech Republic, we used a modified technique. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fifty-six limbs in 49 patients suffering from great saphenous vein or small saphenous vein insufficiency in combination with symptomatic chronic venous insufficiency and complicating comorbidities were treated with a modified endovascular cyanoacrylate glue application technique...

Varicose veins are a very common condition and have been the subject of a recent proliferation of treatment modalities. The advent of the endovenous treatment era has led to a confusing array of different techniques that can be daunting when making the transition from traditional surgery. All modalities offer excellent results in the right situation, and each has its own treatment profile. Thermal ablation techniques have matured and have a reassuring and reliable outcome, but the arrival of nonthermal techniques has delivered further options for both patient and surgeon...

BACKGROUND:  Post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) is a common chronic consequence of deep vein thrombosis that affects the quality of life and is associated with substantial costs. In clinical practice, it is not possible to predict the individual patient risk. We develop and validate a practical two-step prediction tool for PTS in the acute and sub-acute phase of deep vein thrombosis. METHODS:  Multivariable regression modelling with data from two prospective cohorts in which 479 (derivation) and 1,107 (validation) consecutive patients with objectively confirmed deep vein thrombosis of the leg, from thrombosis outpatient clinic of Maastricht University Medical Centre, the Netherlands (derivation) and Padua University hospital in Italy (validation), were included...

Varicose veins (VVs) and varicose ulceration (VU) are usually considered non-life-threatening conditions, but in some cases they can lead to major complications such as fatal bleeding. The aim of this systematic review is to evidence the most updated information on bleeding from VV and VU. As evidence acquisition, we planned to include all the studies dealing with "Haemorrhage/Bleeding" and "VVs/VU". We excluded all the studies, which did not properly fit our research question, and with insufficient data...

This work is dedicated to a challenging issue of modern phlebology-establishment of a physical mechanism of the endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) against great saphenous vein incompetence (protuberant varicosities). Using optical and acoustical methods, we have studied the laser-induced formation of microbubbles in an aqueous solution of surface-active substances, serum, and blood directly in patients while conducting EVLT of the great saphenous vein in a clinical setting. We have used lasers with wavelengths 0...

A 56-year-old woman presented in 2006 with symptomatic primary varicose veins in her right leg. Venous duplex ultrasonography at that time showed what appeared to be "neovascular tissue" around the saphenofemoral junction. However, there had been no previous trauma or surgery in this area. This appearance has subsequently been described as primary avalvular varicose anomalies. She underwent endovenous treatment at that time. In 2018, she presented with symptomatic recurrent varicose veins of the same leg...

BACKGROUND: Cancer patients who develop a deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) or a pulmonary embolism (PE) are at higher risk of death than similar cancer patients who do not develop DVT or PE. The impact of isolated superficial venous thrombosis (SVT) (i.e. without DVT or PE) on the prognosis of cancer patients is unknown. METHODS: Data from the OPTIMEV, multicentre, observational study, to compare at 3 years the incidences of death, DVT-PE recurrence and bleeding of cancer patients with objectively confirmed SVT vs...

Klippel-Trénaunay syndrome is a rare mixed malformation characterized by congenital varicose veins, low-flow venous and lymphatic malformations, hypertrophy of soft tissue and bone, and capillary malformations. A 35-year-old man with a diagnosis of Klippel-Trénaunay syndrome presented to the clinic with significant pain and swelling in the left leg. Initial conservative management with compression therapy failed. He was then managed surgically with preoperative placement of an inferior vena cava filter (because of a history of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism), followed by resection of the lateral embryonic vein, ligation of large perforators, and excision of smaller varicosities...

BACKGROUND: Whereas chronic venous insufficiency and varicose veins (VVs) are a universally recognized problem, they are frequently underappreciated as major contributors to long-term morbidity in the elderly despite the increasing prevalence with age. Previous studies have demonstrated that chronic venous insufficiency and VV treatments in patients ≥65 years old yield an overall benefit; however, there have been few data as to whether octogenarians are undergoing these procedures and with what success...
