Role of vascular ultrasound in cases of lower limb hyperpigmentation
Conclusion: All patients with lower leg pigmentation with or without visible varicose vein should undergo vascular US to rule out any venous insufficiency.
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). 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-...

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.

ConclusionThe PCS is associated with an increase in the incidence and severity of the CVD symptoms.
The objective of this study was to review the outcomes of varicose veins originating from the popliteal fossa at a single center.
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.
Obsidio Inc., a medical device company based in Columbia, South Carolina, has developed an embolic hydrogel (called a gel embolic material: GEM) designed to be delivered minimally invasively through a clinical catheter for blood vessel occlusion. App...
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.
CONCLUSIONS: OBEVRFAs of the truncal veins for the treatment of varicose veins is safe and effective and could be performed in all suitable patients to free up theatre capacity. PMID: 31351830 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
