BACKGROUND: The CEAP class 1 patients often complain of heaviness, cramps and paresthesias of the lower limbs, which often does not find an adequate solution. Phlebotonics drugs usually are prescribed but not always they solve the problem.
METHODS: The Authors tested the effectiveness of a phytotherapeutic preparation in a particularly “at risk” category for venous disease, the female nursing staff. Fifty patients class CEAP 1 were selected for this study; they assumed two tablets day of a preparation based on “Rusco” and Curcuma” (Eudren *) for a period of 15 days, as “short term therapy”. The symptoms were “heaviness” in 50 patients, “cramps” in 23 patients, “paresthesias” in 16 patients.
RESULTS: At 15 days control a positive result was obtained in 74% (37 patients) of cases for “heaviness”, in 78% (18 patients) for “cramps” and 81% (13 patients) for paresthesias. Five patients interrupted the therapy for various reasons.
CONCLUSIONS: In patients class CEAP 1 we can get satisfactory results with a “short term” therapy even in patients who perform demanding physical activity in a prolonged standing position, like nurses.
