OBJECTIVE To evaluate the healing rate of venous leg ulcers treated with Promogran. METHOD Patients with stagnating venous leg ulcers were recruited. Target wounds were > or = 2 cm but < or = 10 cm in any one dimension. Subjects were randomly allocated to receive either Promogran or a non-adherent dressing (Adaptic) with a secondary dressing of gauze(More)
OBJECTIVES Surgical treatment of varicose veins of the lower limbs is frequently complicated by recurrence. Although recurrence was long thought to result from technical errors, certain patients have progressive disease. METHODS We used duplex-Doppler to assess 102 patients (160 limbs) with recurrence after resection of the saphene-femoral junction with(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy, tolerability and acceptability of a new two-bandage compression system in the local management of venous or mixed aetiology ulcers predominantly of venous origin. METHOD This was a prospective non-comparative open label phase III clinical study. Forty-two patients were recruited from 12 centres. Inclusion criteria(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of Class 1 (10-15 mmHg at the ankle) compression stockings with that of reference stockings of identical appearance during the early stages of chronic venous disease (CVD). METHODS A prospective multi-center randomized double blind crossover study was conducted on 2 groups of female patients presenting(More)
STUDY AIM The aim of this retrospective study was to classify postoperative recurrent varicose veins in the area of the short saphenous vein. PATIENTS AND METHOD This retrospective ultrasound Doppler exploration was performed in 60 patients (77 limbs) who had been operated with crossectomy, isolated or associated with a stripping of the short saphenous(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify wound prognostic indicators in a non-selected patient population with leg ulcers. METHOD This was a prospective observational survey involving 151 physicians. Ambulatory patients with venous leg ulcers were treated with a non-adherent foam dressing and usual leg ulcer management. At follow-up after three to six weeks, ulcer healing(More)
OBJECTIVE This non-comparative phase II study aimed to evaluate the safety and performance of a non-adhesive gelling foam dressing (GFD-N) in leg ulcer management. METHOD Forty-six subjects with moderately to heavily exuding leg ulcers were treated with a regimen including GFD-N. Dressings were changed at least every seven days for four weeks or until(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate concordance with compression therapy in ambulatory patients with venous leg ulcers. METHOD This was a prospective observational survey conducted in general practice. Consecutive patients with venous leg ulcers about to receive a non-adherent primary dressing and with no contraindication to compression bandaging were selected. At the(More)
Treatments with estrogens and progestogens are suspected of causing vascular complications either directly or by metabolic consequences. Although many studies have demonstrated an increased incidence of arterial and deep venous thrombosis, since 1970 the dose of estrogens and progesterones have been lowered with a proportional lowering of side effects.(More)

Vulval or vulvoperineal varicose veins generally appear in the course of child-bearing under the influence of hormonal impregnation on susceptible terrain. The vulval venous network is drained by the external pudendal veins, collateral with the internal saphenous veins, and by the internal pudendal veins affluent from the internal iliacs. Hormonal influence(More)
