We recently discussed opportunities to exchange information published in our journals and/or by authors affiliated with our Phlebology societies. This editorial on compression therapy is our first such collaboration. Compression remains an important intervention in the management of venous and lymphatic disease – even in this time of high-tech innovation. Pannier et al. reported on prevalence and acceptance of medical compression stockings (MCS) based on results from the Bonn Vein Study. This… 
Phlebotonic and Compression Stocking Therapy in Venous Edema Management: An Overview of Recent Advances with a Focus on Cyclo 3 Fort® and Progressive Compression Stockings
TLDR
An overview of some of the recent developments in the use of phlebotonic and compression therapy in the management of patients with lower limb venous edema, with a focus on Cyclo 3 Fort® and progressive compression stockings is provided.
Modified compression therapy in mixed arterial–venous leg ulcers: An integrative review
TLDR
This integrative review presents the current evidence to establish the role of modified compression therapy (MCT) in treatment of mixed arterial venous leg ulcers and concludes that MCT, with compression pressures between 20 and 30 mmHg, can promote healing in MAVLU with moderate arterial insufficiency.
A Review of the Current Management and Treatment Options for Superficial Venous Insufficiency
TLDR
An overview of the modern management of varicose veins and venous insufficiency is provided, covering simple spider veins to chronic venous ulcerations.
Management of Chronic Venous Disease by General Practitioners in Serbia: A Cross–Sectional Study
TLDR
Although GPs had undergone special medical training about CVD before they were included in the study, some patients did not receive complete management of their condition and continuous training of GPs and clinical guidelines for the management of CVD may help GPs to make adequate decisions.
Safety of compression therapy for venous ulcer disease in the setting of congestive heart failure
TLDR
Compression therapy appears safe amongst patients with stable congestive heart failure, according to a retrospective review of 95 patients who underwent compression therapy at the wound care center of a large teaching hospital between January 2013 and June 2019.
Use of a Mobile Intermittent Pneumatic Compression Device (Vekroosan) in Mobile Patients With Chronic Venous Disease
TLDR
This study shows that use of mobile IPC devices, such as Vekroosan, is safe and effective in the treatment of CVD, can be used while mobilizing and can achieve results comparable to non-mobile devices.
A Case of Endovascular Radiofrequency Ablation for Varicose Vein with Venous Stasis Ulcers Complicating Prader-Willi Syndrome
TLDR
It is necessary that proactive therapeutic intervention including daily improvement of venous stasis and surgical therapy, as well as raising awareness of such interventions, are conducted.
A case series of platelet rich plasma in chronic venous ulcers
Difficulty Associated with Donning Medical Compression Stockings: Results from a Survey Comparing Two Different Compression Stockings
TLDR
Progressive M CSs were associated with significantly better outcomes (ease of putting on/taking off and comfort) than the conventional MCSs and ‘comfort’ and ’ease-of-putting-on/taking-off’ dimensions.

Are graduated compression stockings still essential for VTE prophylaxis in general surgical patients
TLDR
The incidence of symptomatic venous thromboembolism in patients of a general surgery department was kept low with a simple, but strictly applied preventative protocol of LMWH.
Elastic compression stockings for prevention of deep vein thrombosis.
TLDR
GCS are effective in diminishing the risk of DVT in hospitalised patients and data examination suggests that GCS on a background of another method of prophylaxis is more effective than G CS on its own.
Use of elastic compression stockings after deep venous thrombosis: a comparison of practices and perceptions of thrombosis physicians and patients 1
TLDR
It is suggested that long‐term study of the optimal use of ECS after DVT is both necessary and feasible.
Review on the value of graduated elastic compression stockings after deep vein thrombosis.
TLDR
There is level Ia evidence to suggest that GECS can significantly reduce the incidence of post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) after DVT, and therefore these should be routinely prescribed.

TLDR
Especially designed compression stockings exerting sufficient interface pressure may be indicated in patients with small ulcers of short duration.
Leg symptoms of healthy people and their treatment with compression hosiery
TLDR
MCS of 15 mmHg effectively relieve the symptoms resembling venous insufficiency, prevent oedema and are well-tolerated.

TLDR
Future descriptions of compression bandages should include the subbandage pressure range measured in the medial gaiter area, the number of layers, and a specification of the bandage components and of the elastic property (stiffness) of the final bandage.
Endovenous laser ablation
TLDR
The application of the principles of tumescent anesthesia to venous treatments, along with the development of endovenous ablation techniques, offer the possibility of treating the vast majority of patients with varicose veins in-office without general anesthesia or surgical incisions, while at the same time maximizing outcomes and minimizing recurrence.
