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...

Publication date: Available online 5 November 2019Source: Journal of Vascular Surgery: Venous and Lymphatic DisordersAuthor(s): Zhenyu Guo, Xu Li, Tao Wang, Jianjun Liu, Bin Chen, Longhua FanAbstractBackgroundLower limb chronic venous disease (CVD), resulting from iliac vein compression syndrome (IVCS), manifests as a series of symptoms ranging from varicose veins to venous ulcerations. 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...

CONCLUSIONS: There is very low-certainty evidence regarding the use of GECS for treatment of PTS as assessed by two small studies of short duration. One study reported beneficial haemodynamic effects, while one found no benefits on PTS severity compared to control/placebo stockings. There is very limited evidence for adverse effects, patient satisfaction, QoL, and compliance rates. There is low-certainty evidence favouring use of intermittent pneumatic compression devices compared to a control device for the treatment of severity owing to different measurements used by the studies reporting on this outcome and small studie...

CONCLUSIONS: Appropriate treatment with MPFF may help reduce post-procedural pain, haemorrhage, and CVD-specific symptoms. While adjunct VAD treatment seems promising, high-quality placebo-controlled studies are needed to unequivocally demonstrate its benefits. PMID: 31284708 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ra ML Abstract OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effectiveness of compression stockings in controlling the varicose veins in pregnant women. METHOD: A prospective controlled randomized clinical trial was performed, including 60 women: intervention group (n = 30), who used compression stockings, and control group (n = 30). Diameters of the great saphenous vein and small saphenous vein in the lower limbs of pregnant women in an orthostatic position were analyzed using Duplex-ultrasound. The symptomatology and CEAP were evaluated. RESULTS: Great saphenous vein diameters in the interven...

Abstract We sought to assess clinical characteristics and pattern of collateral network involvement associated with development of truncal (systematized) versus diffuse/non-truncal (non-systematized) varicose veins (VVs) in patients undergoing endovascular laser photothermolysis for chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). Secondly, we aimed to assess whether the type of VVs influenced the procedural complications of endovascular laser therapy. A total of 508 patients with hydrostatic VVs of the lower limbs who underwent endovenous laser treatment were included, out of which 84.1% (n=427) had truncal VVs (group 1) and ...

This study compares MOCA with concomitant phlebectomy (MOCAP) versus ablation with sequential phlebectomy if required (MOCAS). METHODS: Patients with symptomatic Comprehensive Classification System for Chronic Venous Disorders (CEAP C2-C6) unilateral axial reflux were studied. Patient choice determined whether concomitant treatment of varicosities was carried out. The primary outcome was the Aberdeen Varicose Veins Questionnaire (AVVQ) at one year. Secondary outcomes included: Venous Clinical Severity Scores (VCSS), EuroQol 5-Domain quality of life scores, complications, procedure duration, procedural and post-operati...

AbstractChronic venous disease (CVD) is a prevalent condition that tends to worsen with age. Patients initially seek treatment to relieve symptoms of leg pain, discomfort, heaviness and swelling, all of which impact their quality of life. As the disease increases in severity to include varicose veins, skin changes, and venous ulcer, the demand for treatment increases while the quality of life further diminishes. The prevalence of CVD is highest in Western countries where it already consumes up to 2% of healthcare budgets. With the aging of the global population, the prevalences of CVD and severe CVD are projected to increa...
