Venous insufficiency

Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is the consequence of the decompensation in the functioning of the peripheral veins in the lower limbs; in this situation, the return of blood to the heart is no longer guaranteed either in an orthostatic or clinostatic position.

The critical point of the clinical manifestations of IVC is chronic venous hypertension, an event that underlies the changes in blood flow both at the level of macro and micro circulation. These changes are called hemodynamic stress.

Hemodynamic stress manifests itself differently depending on the occurrence of the following three factors, to a greater or lesser extent:

  1. entity of hypertensive value;
  2. type of flow mode;
  3. site and structural features of the vessel segment.

For many years, PIAM has been paying close attention to these problems by proposing innovative solutions adapted to patient needs.
