Medical compression stockings on the skin moisture in patients with chronic venous disease.

Medical compression stockings on the skin moisture in patients with chronic venous disease. Vasa. 2019 Jul 31;:1-7 Authors: Westphal T, Konschake W, Haase H, Vollmer M, Jünger M, Riebe H Abstract Background: Because of side effects like skin dryness and consecutive symptoms like itching the therapy of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) with medical compression stockings (MCS) can lead to a diminished wear comfort and restricted compliance. Compression stockings with integrated skin care may have a positive influence on the skin hydration and moreover a positive effect on patients compliance. Patients and methods: In this monocentric, randomized prospective, controlled trial a below knee conventional MCS was compared to a medical compression stocking with integrated skin care (MCS-SC), interface pressure range 23-32 mmHg. Participants: 50 patients with CVI. Primary outcome: skin hydration. Secondary outcomes: transepidermal water loss, skin roughness, leg volume, interface pressure and questionnaires about quality of life and wear comfort. Results: In patients wearing MCS the skin moisture decreased (p = 0.021) and the skin roughness increased significantly (p = 0.001), whereas in patients wearing the MCS-SC skin moisture and skin roughness changed only slightly (n.s.). These protective effects of MCS-SC compared to MCS were most common in patients with CVI at stage 3 (p = 0.046), in male patients (p = 0....

ConclusionsVenaSeal system is a promising therapeutic option for anatomic success at 6 months, with fewer occurrences of adverse events (wound and groin infection, pulmonary embolism) in CVI patients compared with other interventions in this study. Additional economic analysis including cost-effectiveness analysis would provide interesting perspectives on real-world insights to patients, payers, and providers.

CONCLUSIONS: Sapheno-femoral junction morphology may affect recurrent varicose veins formation. In particular, a concomitant incompetence of the accessory saphenous vein or its directly confluence into the SFJ could represent an indication to simultaneous treatment by non-surgical techniques (RTA or laser) and avoid surgical ligation.

BACKGROUND Varicose veins are common clinical entities. Foam sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive and simple procedure; however, the side effects, efficacy, and stability of sclerosing foam are not ideal. OBJECTIVE To summarize the current studies on sclerosing foam stability and promote foam sclerotherapy development. MATERIALS AND METHODS We reviewed the literature before June 2018 and included only representatives studies on sclerosing foam stability. We summarized the foam half-life time (FHT) of polidocanol (POL) under 17 preparation conditions and the FHT of sodium tetradecyl sulfate under 21 preparation con...
