BACKGROUND: The purpose of the present study was to assess whether or not etastocompression stimulates the production of parietal fibrinolytics in the compressed lower extremity of people with varicose veins of primary origin.
METHODS: A pilot study was carried out on 16 patients (7 male and 9 female) suffering from varicose veins. After highlighting with indelible pen the zone involved, a blood sample was taken. Thereafter an eccentric compress was applied in the form of a cotton cylinder and a concentric compress with an elastic bandage; in addition, pressure was measured with a 9810 Tek Scan system. After 4 hours of continuous pressure, another sample was taken in the same zone.
RESULTS: An increase in fibrinolytic activity was noted in all patients. This technique was able to reveal the cause of the damage to the endothelium, namely the increase in vWag and the absence of local production of fibrin and haemoconcentration.
CONCLUSIONS: It can be stated that elastocompression should be used particularly to prevent venous thrombosis.
