Tóm tắt

Lower limb chronic venous insufficiency is a commonly seen disease which accounted for 40.5% of people over the age of 50 years old with females having 4.25 higher prevalence compared with males [23]. The lesions could be observed in superficial, perforating, deep veins or all three venous systems in the lower extremities [2]. Superficial veins in particular could be classified in 3 groups: chronic venous insufficiency, varicose veins, and thrombophlebitis. The treatment options of lower limb chronic venous insufficiency in general and chronic venous insufficiency – varicose veins are grouped in two major categories: medication/intervention and surgery. Since 1980s-1990s, endovascular interventions for the treatment of superficial venous insufficiency – varicose veins were introduced and were the new advancement in the treatment of lower limb venous insufficiency disorders [3, 7, 11, 12, 16] .
