OBJECTIVE: Endovascular procedures are gaining more and more popularity as treatment of great saphenous vein (GSV) incompetence. The purpose of the present study was to assess the efficacy of steam GSV ablation. METHODS: Steam ablation using the steam vein sclerosis system (CERMA, France) was performed in 20 patients with GSV incompetence. The efficacy of the procedure was evaluated using ultrasound and the following parameters were assessed: changes in lumen diameter, GSV wall thickness, reflux and presence/absence of blood flow...

PURPOSE: To demonstrate that endovenous thermal ablation is not only effective and safe but also a durable treatment in patients with symptomatic varicose veins. METHODS: From February 2002 to February 2009, 2354 patients (1836 women; mean age 53 years, range 15-95) with symptomatic varicose veins in 3000 limbs underwent endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) or radiofrequency ablation (RFA). The majority of treated vessels were the great saphenous veins (GSV; 2619, 87...

OBJECTIVE: Previous reparative valvular surgical options directed at reconstructing damaged common femoral vein (CFV) valves associated with pathological chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) have not succeeded in reliably managing CVI. In consequence, venous valvuloplasty is rare and most patients are managed conservatively. As a result, monocusp surgery was identified as an optional surgical solution for this large underserved patient group. METHODS: Ulcer patients appear at wound clinics and often experience disappointing results...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effectiveness of endovenous treatment of symptomatic varicose veins using the endovenous laser (EVL) or radiofrequency (RF) energy over a >3-year follow-up. METHODS: From February 2002 to August 2005, 981 consecutive patients (770 women; mean age 51 years, range 15-90) with symptomatic varicose veins in 1250 lower limbs underwent endovenous ablation of 1149 great saphenous veins (GSV) and 101 small saphenous veins (SSV) under tumescent anesthesia without intravenous sedation or regional anesthesia...

OBJECTIVE: We examined the prevalence of venous obstruction in 12 newborns and infants with permanent endovenous ventricular pacing, clinically, and by ultrasonographic assessment of hemodynamics (spontaneity, phasicity, velocity, and turbulence of flow) and morphologic parameters (compressibility, wall thickness, and thrombus presence). MATERIAL AND METHODS: All implantations of single ventricular unipolar endovenous steroid leads, were performed via cephalic vein, and pacemakers were placed in subcutaneous pocket in right prepectoral region...

A patent lumen after deep vein thrombosis can be achieved but at the cost of valve destruction which occurs in 50 to 75% of the cases within 6 to 12 months after the thrombotic event. The diagnosis of post-thrombotic valve destruction is made on the basis of direct consequences of venous back flow. Photoplethysmographic measurement of venous filling pressure while walking or after a Valsava manoeuvre lacks specificity and is insufficiently sensitive, especially in case of minimal back flow. Retrograde femoral phlebography can miss distal back flow if the femoral valves functions correctly...

To assess right ventricular diastolic function in cardiac amyloidosis, pulsed wave Doppler ultrasound measurements of right ventricular inflow velocities and superior vena cava and hepatic vein flow velocities with respiratory monitoring were performed in 41 patients with primary systemic amyloidosis and two-dimensional echocardiographic features of cardiac involvement. Right ventricular diastolic function was abnormal in 31 (76%) of these patients, the major abnormality being a short deceleration time (less than 150 ms) in 21 (68%), suggesting restriction...
