The use of controlled sphygmomanometric compression produces a firmer sclerosis because it produces a uniform venous collapse providing sufficient time for the sclerosing substance to obtain a therapeutic phlebitis. Using phenylbutazone and diuretics it is possible to obtain a controlled varicoselerosis, due to the antiflogistic action of the former and the diuretic action of the latter. When we were not using these drugs (the initial stage of our method), the inflammatory reactions and the edemas, together with the pains and the fever, limited the method greatly now our patients show only limited manifestations of this kind and the varicosclerosis obtained is highly satisfactory. The natural tendency of the patients to lie down after the treatment has to be overcome, we have to insist on this point and make them understand that by doing so they hurt the natural evolution of the treatment and the pains, the edema and the fever are only accentuated by going to bed. In cases of varicose veins complicated by ulcerous lesions,8 the varicosclerosis of the feeding veins of the lesion, together with the Dome Bandage maintained for a mouth, offered complete cures in 94 per cent of the cases treated during that period of time; the rest of the cases were cured with additional measures during a period of one more month. Usually the adhesive bandages are perfectly well tolerated, but, in the few cases when they bother the patient, moistening of the hardened part is sufficient to bring relief and reduce annoyance for the patient.

    Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a common disorder found in many parts of the world. The pathophysiology of this condition is only partly elucidated, and even the development of varicose veins remains unexplained. Microcirculation is greatly affected by CVI, which occasionally induces skin...
