Compression therapy (CT) is one of the most effective therapeutic procedures in chronic venous and lymphatic disease. As every chapter of this book will show, CT is indicated in all different clinical scenarios of venous and lymphatic disease. It will also be clear that CT contraindications are, at the present time, very few as many clinical situations considered as contraindications in the past (coexisting arterial involvement, heart failure, cellulitis) are now considered good indications for compression.
