Deep venous reflux (DVR) is defined as a reflux affecting the deep venous system. DVR essentially arises from two aetiologies, primary deep valve incompetence (PDVI) and post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS), and it is correlated with severe chronic venous insufficiency. DVR correction aims at reducing the increased ambulatory venous pressure, which results from reflux in deep veins in orthodynamic conditions. The results of DVR surgery are not easy to assess, as it is mostly associated with surgery… CONTINUE READING
