The Duplex ultrasonography investigation of varicose veins, the therapeutic strategy.

Auteurs/Authors : Gérard J.L.

Résumé :

Exploring varicose veins is an important part of the work of the vascular medicine specialist. However, for a long time, he remained confined to the role of sonographer. The “gold standard” for the treatment of advanced varicose veins, has most often relied solely on surgical removal.
Today the chemical and thermal ablation of varicose veins has enabled the doctor to propose and implement other alternatives to surgical management. The better knowledge of phlebology and the standardization of these new techniques have gradually spread to all doctors involved in venous disease in different countries. Rigorous performance of the Doppler ultrasonography examination is essential and knowledge of the entire therapeutic range is mandatory.
