[Retrospective analysis of results of using cyanoacrylate composition for varicose vein ablation].

Angiol Sosud Khir 2019 ;25(1):93-98

Department of Additional Professional Education of Healthcare Specialists of the Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University Ministry Of Health, Moscow-Vladimir, Russia.

The method of cyanoacrylate ablation of varicose veins is currently considered as a possible alternative to traditional methods of thermal obliteration. One of significant advantages of this method is no need for performing tumescent anaesthesia. Over the period from 1995 to 2002, cyanoacrylate obliteration of varicose veins was carried out in a total of 96 patients, with clinical assessment of the complication rate and efficacy at various time intervals, with the maximum follow-up period amounting to 3 years.

[Stenting of calcified iliofemoral venous segment in post-thrombotic syndrome].

Angiol Sosud Khir 2019 ;25(1):82-86

Department of Surgery, Institute of Additional Professional Education, South Ural State Medical University of the RF Ministry of Public Health, Chelyabinsk, Russia.

Stenting of the iliac veins in patients with post-thrombotic syndrome is an intervention associated with a low risk of complications, high primary and secondary patency rates, low incidence of restenosis, leading to a significant decrease in the severity of symptoms of chronic venous disease and a high rate of trophic ulcer healing, as compared with conservative therapy. Unlike subcutaneous veins, the formation of calcinates in deep veins after endured thrombosis is of considerably less frequent occurrence. Described in the article is a clinical case report concerning successful stenting of the iliofemoral venous segment in a female patient presenting with post-thrombotic syndrome, a trophic ulcer of the crus, and the presence of linear calcinosis in the lumen of the iliac veins and common femoral vein.

The venous perforators of the lower limb - A new terminology.

Phlebology 2019 Mar 31:268355519837869. Epub 2019 Mar 31.

2 Department of Health Care Studies, College of Polytechnics Jihlava, Jihlava, Czech Republic.

Latin anatomical terminology of venous perforators (communications between superficial and deep venous systems of the lower limb) was adopted as late as 2001 as an appendix to the official nomenclature following the clinicians' request. Terminologia Anatomica, last version of the Latin anatomical nomenclature, published in 1998, unfortunately contains no terms concerning these veins. During the 14th World Congress of the International Union of Phlebology, a consensus document was laid to expand the nomenclature of the lower limb veins, above all 36 new terms for perforators of the lower limb, both in Latin and English languages.

Seeking consensus amongst UK-based interventional radiologists on the imaging diagnosis of pelvic vein incompetence in women with chronic pelvic pain: A modified Delphi study.

Phlebology 2019 Jan 8:268355518821554. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Academic Surgery Unit, Wythenshawe Hospital, Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester, UK.

Objectives: This modified Delphi study of vascular interventional radiologists sought to achieve consensus statements on the optimal imaging strategy and definitions of important imaging diagnostic features in women with pelvic vein incompetence.

Method: The UK-based interventional radiologists with the experience of investigating and treating pelvic vein incompetence responded to up to three rounds of online questionnaires.

Results: Three consensus statements emerged from 27 responders: (1) catheter venography is the 'gold standard' investigation for the diagnosis of pelvic vein incompetence; (2) pelvic vein incompetence should be defined as 'retrograde flow along the ovarian or internal iliac veins'; (3) pelvic varices should be defined as 'tortuous, often dilated, vulval, adnexal, para-uterine veins arising from incompetent internal iliac or ovarian veins.

The use of high venous ligation as an adjunct to endovenous therapy in the management of great saphenous vein incompetence: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

Phlebology 2019 Jan 8:268355518821805. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

1 Department of Vascular Surgery, Mater Misericordiae Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.

Background: In recent years, endovenous intervention has emerged as a minimally invasive alternative to open venous surgery. However, endovenous intervention does not formally disconnect the deep and superficial venous systems and it is hypothesized that recurrence may be greater in the absence of high venous ligation. This study aims to compare the efficacy of a hybrid endovenous approach with adjuvant high venous ligation and standard operative intervention in the management of great saphenous incompetence.
