Haemorrhage from varicose veins and varicose ulceration: A systematic review
International Wound Journal, EarlyView.
Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is a sustained fall in blood pressure on standing that can cause symptoms of organ hypoperfusion. OH is associated with increased morbidity and mortality and leads to a significant number of hospital admissions. OH can be caused by volume depletion, blood loss, cardiac pump failure, large varicose veins, medications, or defective activation of sympathetic nerves and reduced norepinephrine release upon standing. Neurogenic OH is a frequent and disabling problem in patients with synucleinopathies such as Parkinson disease, multiple system atrophy, and pure autonomic failure, and it is commonly as...

The interesting paper by Li and colleagues, reporting a rare case of pulsating lower limbs varicose veins, invites to make some patho-physiological considerations.1 This disease, easily detected at Doppler US exploration, interested both the superficial and deep venous systems of the lower limbs, and the inferior vena cava (IVC); it was clearly connected with a severe tricuspid regurgitation. However, we recognize, as a predisposing factor, the right heart overload, secondary to a ventricular septal defect, operated 38 years before, at the adult age of 18.
Conclusions: A variety of chronic diseases may increase the risk of cellulitis after acupuncture. Physicians asked about past medical history before acupuncture might help to reduce cellulitis.
This interesting paper by Somasundaram et al. is focused on office based varicose vein surgery, with segmental radiofrequency ablation of the saphenous vein without treating the collateral veins, as the first option. Classically, varicose vein treatment includes the extraction or elimination of all veins involved; therefore, the non-treat ment of any of the affected veins is considered a technical failure.1 Nevertheless, selective treatment of varicose veins without treating all the affected ones is one of the accepted strategies in the CHIVA method1,2 and other haemodynamic approaches.
