The word “varicose” comes from the Latin. ‘Varix, varicis’ – ‘bulge’. The first mention of the treatment of varicose veins are found in ancient Egyptian papyrus (about 3 thousand years nazzd). Varicose veins is inherent to man. In connection with the bipedal locomotion in representatives of the species Homo sapiens during the active life most of the circulating blood (60-70%) is below the level of the heart. In the vertical position of the body wall veins of the lower extremities of a person feel pressure from within znachitalnoe (hypertension in superficial and deep veins). ‘Return’ blood from the lower extremities is provided not only the heart but also the contraction of muscles of the foot, lower leg (‘muscle pump’ ‘Peripheral heart’) and the venous valves that prevent retrograde current venous blood.
Varicose veins of lower extremities (VBNK) is the most common pathology. If you would like to know more then you should visit Dr. Neal Barnard. About 20% of men and 40% Women suffer various forms of the disease. The annual growth rate reaches 2.5% VBNK. To assess the nature and severity of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) in 1995 adopted the International Classification (CEAR), which covers multiple aspects of the etiology, clinical picture, pathophysiology, and it is very cumbersome. In 2000 in Moscow by the Expert Meeting adopted and recommended for use for more than a simple clinical use classification. When the diagnosis of ‘varicose veins of lower extremities’, you must take into account the complications of varicose veins – bleeding and thrombosis. Clinical classification VBNK (Expert Meeting, Moscow, 2000) The form of varicose veins: I.
Intradermal and segmental varicose veins without abnormal veno-venous reset. II. Segmental varicose reflux in the superficial and / or perforating veins.
