AIM: For many years phlebologists have been observing the important role of posture in the hemodynamics of the venous system but till now the complicated postural system hasn’t been viewed in a global way, neitherhave been identified the types of pelvic-podalic attitudes related to the varicose disease.
METHODS: Fifty patients have been evaluated for one year using clinical and instrumental monitoring. Valuation has been performed at time zero and every 30 days till the end of the year. Patients used just a specific orthotic and during this perod did not undergo other physical, medical or compressive treatment.
RESULTS: Abolition of postural and phlebological symptoms, improvement of hemodynamics and disappearence of incontinent perforators with regularization of their hemodynamics. Global improvement patient’s quality of life.
CONCLUSION: Postural correction brought benefit to the patients treated, in some cases of manifest varices it’s been observed disappearence of symptoms.
