BACKGROUND Lipedema is a loose connective tissue disease predominantly in women identified by increased nodular and fibrotic adipose tissue on the buttocks, hips and limbs that develops at times of hormone, weight and shape change including puberty, pregnancy, and menopause. Lipedema tissue may be very painful and can severely impair mobility. Non-lipedema obesity, lymphedema, venous disease, and hypermobile joints are comorbidities. Lipedema tissue is difficult to reduce by diet, exercise, or b...

INTRODUCTION Superficial venous disease (SVD) is a very common disease and much research has been done towards finding the ideal treatment and discovering the pathophysiology of SVD. Not much is known about the psychological burden of SVD. Current guidelines and scientific publications tend to focus on clinical and physiological aspects of SVD. The aim of this study was to relate the changes in Quality-of-Life (QoL) after SVD treatment to possible changes in psychological distress (PD). METHODS ...

OBJECTIVES Contrast agents are used widely in the interventional setting and in particularly in the management of vascular anomalies and have also been used in combination with sclero-embolic agents. There is limited information on the interaction of contrast agents with sclerosant agents when used as mixtures. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of mixing radiological contrast agents with detergent sclerosants and measuring the effect on change in lytic activity of detergent scler...

OBJECTIVE The use of cyanoacrylate products (CA) in incompetent perforator vein (IPV) treatment has not been thoroughly examined. The primary objective of this study is to describe the technique of ultra sound guided direct injection of IPV with CA, and secondarily to determine early closure rates and safety of this technique. METHODS A retrospective analysis of patients undergoing IPV injection at two centres between 2015-2018 was conducted. Demographics, CEAP classification and IPV location we...

INTRODUCTION Interface pressure measuring devices are used to assess the pressures exerted by compression. Their performance, however, has not been considered as a contributing factor to reported inconsistences in the application of compression. A systematic review was undertaken to investigate the performance of commercially available devices used to measure interface pressure. METHODS Six databases were searched identifying 17 devices, grouped into five sensor categories. RESULTS A range of me...

OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy and safety of once-daily 10 mg rivaroxaban for venous thromboembolism prophylaxis after ClosureFast radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of saphenous veins. METHOD The medical records of patients, who had a Caprini score of ≥3, underwent RFA, received prophylactic rivaroxaban for five days, and completed follow up at one month were reviewed for efficacy (a combination of endovenous heat-induced thrombosis [EHIT] grade of 2-4, any symptomatic or asymptomatic deep vein th...

OBJECTIVE Puig types 2 through 4 venous malformations (VMs) are challenging to treat with sclerotherapy given their robust systemic outflow. Endovenous balloon occlusion offers a means of temporarily occluding systemic venous outflow to allow for more complete sclerotherapy. This study reviews our experience of implementing this technique in patients with Puig advanced (types 2 through 4) VMs. METHODS An IRB approved review of treated venous malformations from 2013-2016 revealed 10 patients fitt...

OBJECTIVE To assess the clinical efficacy of sulodexide, including a comparison with venoactive drugs (VAD) (micronized purified flavonoid fraction, MPFF; hydroxy-ethyl-rutosides, HR; calcium dobesilate;Ruscus extract combined with hesperidin methyl chalcone and vitamin C, Ruscus+HMC+VitC; horse chestnut seed extract, HCSE) and pentoxifylline in patients with chronic venous disease. METHODS We performed a literature search in MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane Library for randomized controlled trials...

OBJECTIVE We present 12 months efficacy data from A Singapore VenaSeal™ real-world post-market evaluation Study (ASVS), a prospective single-arm Asian population registry aimed to evaluate cyanoacrylate glue (CAG) closure of refluxing truncal veins. METHODS Duplex ultrasound was used to assess truncal vein closure. The revised Venous Clinical Severity Score (rVCSS) and three quality of life (QoL) questionnaires were completed to assess improvement in venous disease symptoms. RESULTS 90/100 (90%)...
