Phlebolymphology N°102 – Editorial
In this new issue of Phlebolymphology you will find the articles as below:
There is significant variation in the treatment of combined truncal-vein reflux and symptomatic varicosities. Nicholas OSBORNE and colleagues (USA) present the results of their study based on the Vascular Quality Initiative (VQI) / Varicose Vein Registry (VVR) in which they explored the contemporary real-world experience of combined ablation and phlebectomy versus ablation alone.
Three-dimensional (3D) modeling of the venous system is often a great support to evaluate the patients with chronic venous disorders in the case of complex anatomy or recurrent varices after surgery (REVAS). Jean-Francois UHL (France) explains how to build and print 3D models of the veins.
Prasesh DHAKAL and Robin Man KARMACHARYA and colleagues (Nepal) discuss the influence of age, gender, duration of illness and symptoms on pigmentation/ulceration in varicose veins of the great saphenous system based on their retrospective observational study results.
Deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) along with superficial-vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism constitute the group termed venous thromboembolism, which remains a significant medical and social problem. Kirill LOBASTOVand colleagues (Russia) report the results of a pilot clinical study that aimed to assess the efficacy of the long-term use of micronized purified flavonoid fraction in adjunction to rivaroxaban for the treatment of popliteal-femoral DVT.
