- Vascular Remodeling in Varicose Veins. Kockx, Mark M.; Knaapen, Michiel W. M.; Bortier, Hilde E.; Cromheeke, Kristel M.; Boutherin-Falson, Odile; Finet, Michel // Angiology;Nov1998, Vol. 49 Issue 11, p871
The present study describes the histopathologic aspects of varicose (n=29; mean age, 52 Â±12 years) and normal saphenous veins (n=17; mean age, 51 Â±12 years) of patients from a similar age group. We focused on the changes that occur in the circular layer of the venous wall. We examined the...
- Surgical treatment of varicose veins. Wolf, B.; Brittenden, J. // Journal of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh;Jun2001, Vol. 46 Issue 3, p1
Explains surgical treatment for varicose veins. Conditions that require and favor a varicose vein surgery; Explanation of sapheno-femoral ligations; Procedure of stripping a long saphenous vein; Significance of marking the sapheno-popliteal vein pre-operatively with Doppler scanning.
- Necrotising Fascitis in a fit 44 year old female after high tie and stripping of saphenous vein resulting in death. Boghossian, Shahe; Kazmi, Syed // International Journal of the A.J. Institute of Medical Sciences;Nov2013, Vol. 2 Issue 2, p156
High tie and stripping of the saphenous vein has been the basic standard operation in any vascular unit. It is a safe and well replicated procedure with an easy learning curve. Despite being almost superseded by newer and less invasive modalities the procedure has been the standard method of...
- Alteration in Collagen and Elastin Content in Varicose Veins. Chello, Massimo; Mastroroberto, Pasquale; Romano, Rossana; Cirillo, Francesco; Cusano, Tullio; Marchese, Antonietta R. // Vascular Surgery;Jan/Feb1994, Vol. 28 Issue 1, p23
The nature and distribution of venous disease surrounding the development of varicose veins is controversial. Collagen and elastin are important components of the vein walls that affect their function. Collagen provides tensile strength, and elastin provides tissue elasticity. The amount of...
- Insights in the Development of Primary Venous Reflux. Labropoulos, Nicos; Giannoukas, Athanasios D.; Stavridis, George; Bailey, David; Glenville, Brian; Nicolaides, Andrew N. // Vascular Surgery;Mar/Apr1999, Vol. 33 Issue 2, p191
Purpose: The relation between vein wall fibrosis and presence of primary venous reflux was investigated. Methods: Twenty-eight limbs of 27 patients undergoing coronary bypass surgery without history of superficial or deep venous thrombosis and without clinical evidence of varicose veins were...
- Decreased PGE2 Content Reduces MMP-1 Activity and Consequently Increases Collagen Density in Human Varicose Vein. Gomez, Ingrid; Benyahia, Chabha; Louedec, Liliane; Leséche, Guy; Jacob, Marie-Paule; Longrois, Dan; Norel, Xavier // PLoS ONE;Feb2014, Vol. 9 Issue 2, p1
: Varicose veins are elongated and dilated saphenous veins. Despite the high prevalence of this disease, its pathogenesis remains unclear. Aims: In this study, we investigated the control of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) expression by prostaglandin (PG)E2 during the vascular wall remodeling...
- A possible genetic answer to a recently reported novel phenotype. Khan, K.; Ali, M.; Inglehearn, C. // Eye;Apr2011, Vol. 25 Issue 4, p529
A letter to the editor is presented in response to the article "Unique phenotype in a Chinese family pedigree: ectopia lentis with varicose great saphenous vein," by W. Shen and colleagues in the 2010 issue.
