Perspectives on Chronic Venous Insufficiency
Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), or Chronic Venous Disease (CVD), is a condition characterized by impaired venous blood flow in the legs. It occurs when the valves within the leg veins become damaged or weakened, leading to blood pooling and symptoms such as leg swelling, pain, and skin changes. Risk factors include genetics, obesity, prolonged sitting or standing, and previous blood clots. Management options for CVI encompass lifestyle modifications, compression therapy, medications, and surgical interventions when necessary. Accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment are crucial for effectively addressing chronic venous insufficiency in patients.
Int. consensus on indications and contraindications of compression
Chronic venous disease is a medical condition that tends to worsen with age. It is made up of a variety of signs and symptoms that impact patients’ quality of life. This web seminar discusses the role of medical compression stockings in treating chronic venous disease.
Indications for Medical Compression Stocking in Chronic Venous Diseases
Dr. Eberhard Rabe started his presentation with studies showing improvement in using medical compression stockings. He said that 51 new pieces of evidence recommend using these stockings for various diseases. In this presentation, the objectives are to provide update of the recommendations in the 2008 consensus statement, fill gaps identified in the earlier consensus statement and provide graded recommendations for the clinical goal of treatment using medical compression stockings (MCS).
Risk and contraindication medical compression treatment
Dr. Tomasz Urbanek starts the speech by the general recommendation: "We recommend that every patient receiving compression therapy should be screened for conditions that increase the risk of complications and every compression device should be checked for appropriate fit and application."
Risks and complications of compression therapy
Dr Tobias Hirsch presented topics about oedema drainage and cardiac insufficiency as well borderline indications.
Risk and contraindication medical compression treatment (Part 1)
Compression therapy is the use of compression socks, stockings, boots, or bandages to apply gentle pressure to the legs. Doctors prescribed compression therapy for thousands of years. Modern science continues to discover new benefits of compression therapy. Dr. Christopher started by introducing compression classification and its importance as he discussed tension devices, and not pure pressure devices because we believe the tension is the root of most of the complications and the law of Laplace; they can be divided into two elastic compression devices, which have sustained pressure and a rise in tissue pressure, and inelastic compression, which have rapid elevations in tissue pressure.

Chronic Venous Obstruction – state of the art diagnostic and treatment
Global experts will share insights about the art of diagnostic and treatment of chronic venous obstructions, their personal experiences in the treatment of ulcera and last but not least give guidance in the choosing of the right compression technology
Covid-19 and thrombosis
A first of its kind experience to stay updated with the vascular health challenges of Covid-19 in the world of today.
Thrombosis & Covid-19 - Individual Risk Assessment & Prophylaxis Protocol
Prof. Joseph Caprini, Emeritus at the NorthShore University Health System in Evanston, Illinois and a senior clinician-educator at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, believes that individual risk assessment of thrombosis in Covid-19 patients is a fundamental part of analyzing the pandemic! As the number and power of risk factors increase in the Caprini Score, the incidence of thrombosis increases, resulting in a score that has been validated in 5 million patients. There is a non-linear increase in clinical venous thromboembolism incidence as the score increases! But capturing the 40 elements in the Caprini Score is a time-consuming process! However, it can be facilitated by having the patient complete a preliminary form in advance of elective surgery with the help of family members. That is why physicians should review the initial documents filled by the patients and their families. However, is there really a connection between Thrombosis and Covid-19?
Strategy for treating vascular emergencies during the Covid-19 pandemic in China
Prof. Jinsong Wang started the taking with the Covid 19 started in December 2019 broke out worldwide and how the frontline medical staff is at high risk for occupational exposure and infection also preventing nosocomial infections is a particularly important and challenging task during the pandemic.
Venous thromboembolism prophylaxis and treatment in Covid-19
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis consists of pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic measures to diminish the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). Dr. Kirill Lobastov started his talk by the incidence of venous thromboembolism in patients with covid infection. It was found in 11 studies with more than 1500 thousand participants. In most of these studies, patients used low molecular heparins in prophylactic intermediate therapeutic toes. It was about 13 percent, and pulmonary embolism was about eight. In the intensive care unit, it was high that pulmonary embolism occurred in about 18 percent of all patients.
CVI, DVT and Nausea in pregnancy: What to expect and how to deal with it?
Global female experts will share insights about chronic venous insufficiency in pregnancy and a randomized crossover trila on the effect of compression stockings on nausea and vomiting in early pregnancy.
Venous and non-venous symptoms in pregnancy
During pregnancy the body undergoes various changes which may impair quality of life. There is some evidence demonstrating that compression therapy is a safe and simple way to treat pregnancy-related physical complaints. Dr Erika Mendoza, resident phlebologist in Germany and general secretary of the German Society of Phlebology, shares her evidence-based opinion on compression therapy during pregnancy within the MOH webinar “CVI, DVT and nausea in pregnancy: What to expect and how to deal with it?” on June 4, 2022.
Chronic venous insufficiency in pregnancy
Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is one of the consequences of pregnancy-related haemodynamic and physical changes, which can be treated in a safe and simple way by compression therapy. At the current global medical online hub (MOH) webinar “CVI, DVT and nausea in pregnancy: What to expect and how to deal with it?” on June 4, 2022, Prof Dr Caitlin W. Hicks, Associate Professor of surgery at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in the US, provided detailed insights on the mechanisms leading to venous insufficiency and how compression therapy may help.
