Arteriopathies in phlebopathies

Often in the course of occlusive arteriopathies of the lower limbs, other angiopathies may arise, which must be considered carefully, as they can affect the prognosis of the arterial disease by worsening its evolution. In particular, phlebopathies and lymphoangiopathies may appear; the presence of arterio-venular hyperstomy can also be relevant. A timely diagnosis of these symptoms is of great importance, also for determining an appropriate treatment. Therefore, excluding those situations in which there is an association of varices and arteriopathy, rare but non uncommon situations which lead the vascular surgeon to search alternative solutions to the use of the great saphenous vein to carry out a bypass, we believe that it is necessary to study all those cases in which the association of the 2 causes is evident, contemporaneous or consequential, and that are not frequently observed.
