AIM Even though compression therapy is the most recommended treatment for chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) in the national and international guidelines, its application, at least in Italy, is lower than the estimated need from the prevalence of CVI in the epidemiological studies. Since we believe that the measurement of the impact of compression therapy on quality of life (QoL) could improve the compliance for this precious treatment, we carried out this study on 50 patients with CVI…
