Introduction: Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS) is an alternative and supplementary method for endovenous thermal ablation (EVTA) to treat incompetent saphenous reflux (ISR) and branch varicose veins (BVV).[1] The long-term result is not as satisfactory as EVTA, even while administered by catheter-directed method with or without tumescent local anesthesia.[2,3,4] Combined high ligation(HS) of sapheno-femoral junction(SFJ)/ sapheno-popliteal junction (SPJ) and reversed catheter-directed foam sclerotherapy (rCDFS) to treat ISR is an idea to assure SFJ/SPJ closure, avoid foam leaking into deep vein and enhance foam-...

ConclusionsThe incidence of VTE complications after endovenous laser ablation was low. Furthermore, the value of performing postoperative ultrasound for VTE management seems to be low because the occurrence of severe VTE complications could not be predicted by lower extremity venous ultrasound. Although the perioperative detection of VTE complications by this modality resulted in the early administration of anticoagulant therapy and may have contributed to improved prognosis, the number of those patients was limited.

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewVenous disease is common. Depending on the population studied, the prevalence may be as high as 80%. Significant chronic venous disease with venous ulcers or trophic skin changes is reported to affect 1 –10% of the population. A systematic assessment of the clinical findings associated with chronic venous disease will facilitate appropriate imaging. Based on imaging and assessment, patients with reflux or obstruction can be recommended proper medical and endovascular or surgical management.Recent FindingsMany types of endovascular management are available to treat reflux and eliminate var...

ConclusionsThe use of open-mouth pressure for elimination of blood reduces postoperative filling of dilated scrotal veins, reduces the visual stimuli to patients immediately after surgery, significantly improves the anxiety and depression of patients, helps to maintain positive mental condition in patients after the surgeries, and increases their confidence in recovery from the disease. It also leads to better pain relief within a short period after the surgery and maximizes surgical benefits for the patients.
