ABSTRACT
Hypostatic eczema (stasis dermatitis) of the leg has been shown to be one of the severe complications of venous insufficiency of the leg. It has also been shown that surgical correction of mainly perforator valvular incompetence results in healing or in a marked decrease of recurrences and severity of the eczema, Before the surgical therapy, however, the surgeon naturally wishes to get the skin of the operative field in the best possible condition. The operation must be preceded by a stage of conser-vative treatment. In this clinic a series of consecutive trials were designed for the evaluation of different types of preoperative treatment. Rather good effects were noted after the use of topical hydrocortisone only, hydrocortisone combined with dichlorooxychinaldine, potassium permanganate and phenylbutazone,During the last few years several authors reported excellent results of the treatment of atopic czema, contact dermatitis and psoriasis with Î’ nethasone 17-valerate, applied topically with or without occlusive dressings. In these reports of several hundreds of cases, how-ever, there were only two patients suffering from hypostatic eczema, In both cases improvement was noted, but no particulars were stated. As far as we know, this is the only reference to the use of this drug in the therapy of hypostatic eczema. For this reason we decided to perform a controlled clinical trial of Î’methadone-17-valerate on this indication.
