Patients with chronic venous insufficiency in the times of COVID-19 and the risk of thrombus formation – suggestions on conservative treatment of such patients based on the principles of pathophysiology
The current limitations of surgical treatment, as well as restrictions on professional and sport activities related to COVID-19 pandemic require seeking therapeutic solutions for the vast population of patients with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI, chronic venous insufficiency). To understand the principles of pharmacotherapy of this disease, the authors used data related to epidemiology and pathophysiology of CVI. They provided the latest data on venoactive drugs and recommendations that should be followed and summarized the literature based on the EBM. The article should provide the answer to the question of how to deal with patients with varicose veins or, more broadly, chronic venous insufficiency during the pandemic.
