Background. To crit­i­cal­ly ­review the clas­sifi­ca­tion, epi­dem­i­ol­o­gy, out­comes, diag­no­sis and treat­ment of chron­ic ­venous dis­or­ders of the leg (CVDL), to issue evi­dence-based rec­om­men­da­tions, and to iden­ti­fy areas requir­ing fur­ther ­research.
Meth­ods. Arti­cles iden­ti­fied by an exten­sive lit­er­a­ture ­search were ­scored by mem­bers of an inter­na­tion­al task force. Only those arti­cles with a mod­er­ate or ­strong rat­ing for inter­nal valid­ity were ­retained.
­Results. A scor­ing ­system weigh­ing CVDL sever­ity accord­ing to the prob­abil­ity of ulcer occur­rence is pro­posed. Epi­dem­i­olog­i­cal data on the fre­quen­cy of CVDL and its risk fac­tors are ­reviewed. The fol­low­ing items are eval­u­at­ed: costs asso­ciat­ed with treat­ment; clin­i­cal out­comes relat­ed to CVDL and its treat­ment; avail­able gener­ic and dis­ease-spe­cif­ic meas­ures of qual­ity of life; diag­nos­tic pro­ce­dures used to ­detect ­venous ­reflux; and effi­ca­cy of available treat­ments.
Con­clu­sions. CVDL is an impor­tant pub­lic ­health prob­lem, based on its prev­a­lence, cost and ­impact on qual­ity of life. High-pri­or­ity areas for ­research on CVDL are iden­ti­fied.
