Chapter 19. Duplex ultrasound assessment in PREsence of Varicose veins After operatIve Treatment (PREVAIT).

Auteurs/Authors : Moraglia L.

Résumé :

The relatively recent evolution of the treatment of superficial venous insufficiency has led to the emergence of new forms of recurrences; all recurrences are referred under acronym PREVAIT (PREsence of Varicose veins After operatIve Treatment).

The frequency of PREVAIT is estimated at 13 to 65%. Therapeutic management requires a meticulous Doppler assessment, in the form of a written report and precise mapping.

This assessment will be greatly facilitated by an effective methodology based on sufficient knowledge of the different modes of recurrences and their expressions.

This chapter aims to systematize as much as possible these modes and expressions of varicose recurrences and offers practical remarks and advices to carry out this sometimes difficult assessment.

The latest studies published on the subject show that varicose recurrences after operative intervention will remain a daily problem for vascular physicians for a long time to come. The echodoppler assessment is the essential diagnostic and pre-therapeutic step.
