This case study reports the diagnosis and treatment of a lower limb venous ulcer with abnormal underlying venous pathology. One male patient presented with bilateral varicose veins and a right lower limb ulcer. Upon investigation, full-leg duplex ultrasonography revealed total incompetence of the great saphenous vein in the left leg. In the right leg, duplex ultrasonography showed proximal incompetence of the small saphenous vein, and dilation of the anterior accessory saphenous vein, which remained competent...

Objectives: We intended to determine whether the ovarian varicose which is one of the common etiologies of the pelvic congestion syndrome, has the ability to interfere with the DNA methylation reprogramming in the oocyte and thereby affect the oocyte quality or not. Materials and Methods: Varicose model was induced according to the Turner's method in the rats. Briefly, a 20-gauge needle was placed on the left renal vein and a thread was tied over both the needle and the renal vein medial to the insertion of the ovarian vein, and then the needle was removed...

Diosmin is a widely used flavonoid for the treatment of varicose veins and hemorrhoids. Epileptic patients with hemorrhoids and varicose veins may use diosmin along with carbamazepine (CBZ) therapy, which leads to pharmacokinetic interaction between diosmin and CBZ. Therefore, the present study was performed to evaluate the effect of diosmin on the pharmacokinetics of CBZ in rats. Diosmin-mediated altered CYP3A enzyme activity in human and rat liver microsomes was examined using CYP3A dependent erythromycin N-demethylase assay...

We present the case of a 58-year-old man who presented to our wound care centre with a 7 -month history of a progressive unilateral leg ulcer. He reported intermittent, heavy bleeding at the ulcer. The duplex sonography showed a bilateral incompetence of the saphenofemoral junctions and the entire course of the great saphenous veins and, surprisingly, also a bilateral reversed arterial-like pulsating flow in the great and small saphenous veins as well as in the deep veins of the lower extremities. During cardiac examination by auscultation and echocardiography, we detected a previously undescribed severe tricuspid insufficiency with strongly reduced systolic ejection of both the left and the right ventricle and repercussions on the peripheral venous system as a cause for the pulsating veins...

BACKGROUND: The correct positioning of the laser tip at the saphenofemoral or saphenopopliteal junction during endovenous laser therapy is paramount to ensure a safe and effective procedure. The aim of this study was to demonstrate how patient positioning and tumescence infiltration can affect this safe junctional distance. METHODS: A retrospective review of a prospectively maintained database was carried out for all patients who received endovenous laser treatment for symptomatic varicose veins between February 2008 and February 2014 in one surgeon's practice in a teaching hospital vascular unit...

BACKGROUND: Endothermal treatment of the great saphenous vein (GSV) has become the first-line treatment for superficial venous reflux. Nonthermal ablation has potential benefits for acceptability by patients and decreased risk of nerve injury. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the efficacy of mechanochemical endovenous ablation (MOCA) and cyanoacrylate vein ablation (CAVA) for GSV incompetence. METHODS: MEDLINE, Embase, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, and Cochrane databases were searched for papers published between January 1966 and December 2016...

Varicose vein surgeries are routine outpatient procedures, which are often performed under local anaesthesia. The use of local anaesthesia both minimises the risk to patients and is cost effective, however, a number of patients still experience pain during surgery. Surgical teams must therefore decide to administer either a general or local anaesthetic based on their subjective qualitative assessment of patient anxiety and sensitivity to pain, without any means to objectively validate their decision. To this end, we develop a 3-D polynomial surface fit, of physiological metrics and numerical pain ratings from patients, in order to model the link between the modulation of cardiovascular responses and pain in varicose vein surgeries...

Chronic venous insufficiency is characterized by cutaneous alterations caused by venous hypertension; in severe forms, it progresses to lower limb ulcers. Lower limb varicose veins are the main cause of chronic venous insufficiency, and the classic treatment includes surgery and compressive therapy. Minimally invasive alternative treatments for varicose veins include new techniques such as venous thermal ablation using laser or radiofrequency. The use of different methods depends on clinical and anatomical factors...
