To compare post-operative compression with no compression, after radiofrequency endothermal ablation (RFA) of a truncal varicose vein and concomitant foam sclerotherapy of the tributaries.
Resumo A s índrome da congestão pélvica (SCP) é definida como dor pélvica crônica há mais de 6 meses associada a varizes perineais ou vulvares, resultantes do refluxo ou obstrução das veias gonadais, glúteas ou periuterinas. A SCP é responsável por 16-31% dos casos de dor pélvica crônica, sendo d iagnosticada sobretudo na terceira e quarta décadas de vida. Nos últimos anos, houve um interesse maior nessa patologia por parte dos cirurgiões vasculares devido à sua associação com insufici&e...
AbstractThe aim of the study was to compare CE-MRV with DANTE-SPACE on a 1.5T MRI system for the diagnosis of DVT. The patients were diagnosed with deep venous thrombosis of the lower extremities based on swelling, pain, and superficial varicose veins of the lower extremities. MRI examination confirmed the diagnosis. DANTE-SPACE images were obtained before the conventional contrast-enhanced MRV, which uses gadolinium. The scanning field started from the end of the inferior vena cava to the end of the ankle, divided into five observation segments, namely, the common iliac vein, external iliac vein, femoral vein, popliteal v...
Post-zygotic mutations in GNAQ/GNA11 genes encoding heterotrimeric G protein alpha subunits account for skin mosaic conditions with vascular or pigmentary anomalies (Shirley et al. 2013; Thomas et al. 2016; Couto et al. 2017; Siegel et al. 2018). We sought to delineate the phenotype of 32 patients with skin capillary malformations (CMs) harbouring an activating post-zygotic mutation in GNA11 or GNAQ in affected skin. Nevus flammeus, ipsilateral segmental overgrowth, varicose veins and macrocephaly were associated with GNAQ mutations, whereas cutis marmorata, nevus anemicus, and ipsilateral hypotrophy were associated with GNA11 mutations.
Conclusions: Adjunct sclerotherapy showed complication rate of roughly one tenth and one fifth of the treated cases in immediate and early postoperative follow-up. PMID: 31687213 [PubMed]
Conclusion: All patients with lower leg pigmentation with or without visible varicose vein should undergo vascular US to rule out any venous insufficiency.

Stent implantation has been considered an effective treatment method; however, the management of CVD has rarely been reported. In the present study, we evaluated the treatment and outcomes of patients with CVD.MethodsWe performed a retrospe...
CONCLUSION: EVLA and RF therapies in saphenous vein insufficiency are effective, minimally invasive, safe, easy to use treatment modalities with good patient satisfaction and high occlusion rates.

Conclusions: In conclusion, our study results show that although HLS seems to be an effective method for the treatment of a GSV diameter of ≥10 mm with a low recurrence rate, it does not statistically significantly differ from EVLA at 1,470 nm wavelength and RFA. Therefore, we believe that EVLA at 1,470 nm wavelength and RFA can be preferred over HLS with low pain scores in this patient population. PMID: 31635532 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionThe PCS is associated with an increase in the incidence and severity of the CVD symptoms.
