2. Balneotherapy for chronic venous insufficiency. (PubMed)

Balneotherapy for chronic venous insufficiency. Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a progressive and common disease that affects the superficial and deep venous systems of the lower limbs. CVI is characterised by valvular incompetence, reflux, venous obstruction, or a combination of these with consequent distal venous hypertension. Clinical manifestations of CVI include oedema, pain, skin changes, ulcerations and dilated skin veins in the lower limbs. It can result in a large financial (...) burden on health systems. There is a wide variety of treatment options or therapies for CVI, ranging from surgery and medication to compression and physiotherapy. Balneotherapy (treatments involving water) is a relatively cheap option and potentially efficient way to deliver physical therapy for people with CVI.To assess the efficacy and safety of balneotherapy for the treatment of people with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).The Cochrane Vascular Information Specialist searched the Cochrane

3. Protocol for a longitudinal cohort study: determination of risk factors for the development of first venous leg ulcer in people with chronic venous insufficiency, the VEINS (venous insufficiency in South Florida) cohort. (PubMed)

Protocol for a longitudinal cohort study: determination of risk factors for the development of first venous leg ulcer in people with chronic venous insufficiency, the VEINS (venous insufficiency in South Florida) cohort. Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) affects up to one-third of the adult population yet venous leg ulcers (VLU), a significant complication of CVI, only affect 1%-2% of adults in the USA. Why some develop VLU and others do not is unclear. VLU have a significant impact on quality (...) of life and are extremely costly and difficult to treat. Moreover, VLU prevalence is increasing, doubling in the last 20 years. In order to characterise the differences between people with CVI and those who ultimately develop VLU, we aim to set up the unique venous insufficiency in South Florida cohort.Subjects will be recruited from the University of Miami Hospital and Clinic's vascular laboratory database, which began in July 2011. Any adult age 18-95 who has had venous reflux detected on duplex

More severe cases exhibit progressive skin changes, venous stasis dermatitis (...) , lipodermatosclerosis, and frank ulceration. Underlying venous insufficiency is most efficiently documented, localised, and graded by duplex ultrasound. Conservative treatment requires graded compression. Open surgical or endovenous treatment options may be used in highly selected cases. Venous ulceration and bleeding are recognised complications.

Physical exercise for the treatment of non-ulcerated chronic venous insufficiency. Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a common disease that causes discomfort and impairs the quality of life of affected persons. Treatments such as physical exercise that aim to increase the movement of the ankle joint and strengthen the muscle pump in the calf of the leg may be useful to reduce the symptoms of CVI.To assess and summarise the existing clinical evidence on the efficacy and safety of physical (...) the data.

Endovenous Thermal Ablation of Recurrent Varicose Veins due to Residual Great Saphenous Venous Insufficiency After Saphenous Venous Surgery: A Comparative Study. Redo surgery for recurrent varicose veins of the great saphenous vein (GSV) is technically more challenging than the initial surgery.To compare 980 and 1,470-nm endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) and radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for the treatment of residual GSV insufficiency after saphenofemoral ligation ± stripping.Thirty-seven limbs (...) with that of group A (2.6 ± 0.9). Ecchymosis grade was significantly (p < .017) lower in group C (0.1 ± 0.3) than that in group A (1.6 ± 1.5).Endovenous thermal ablation using EVLA or RFA is safe and effective for treatment of recurrent varicose veins resulting from residual GSV insufficiency after saphenous venous surgery. The RFA is superior to 980-nm EVLA in terms of postprocedural ecchymosis and improvement in VCSS.
