The Histopathology of Varicose Vein Disease
- REACTIONS OF VENOUS SMOOTH MUSCLE IN NORMAL MEN AND PATIENTS WITH VARICOSE VEINS. Thulesius, Olav; Gj�res, J. E. // Angiology;Feb1974, Vol. 25 Issue 2, p145
The present investigation reports about isometric contraction of isolated vein preparations obtained from normal subjects and patients with varicose veins. The spirally cut vein preparations represented various stages of wall changes due to increasing varicosity. The degree of local vascular...
- Cell-volume-dependent vascular smooth muscle contraction: role of Na+, K+, 2Cl- cotransport, intracellular Cl- and L-type Ca2+ channels. Anfinogenova, Yana; Baskakov, Mikhail B.; Kovalev, Igor V.; Kilin, Alexander A.; Dulin, Nickolai O.; Orlov, Sergei N. // Pflugers Archiv European Journal of Physiology;Oct2004, Vol. 449 Issue 1, p42
This study elucidates the role of cell volume in contractions of endothelium-denuded vascular smooth muscle rings (VSMR) from the rat aorta. We observed that hyposmotic swelling as well as hyper- and isosmotic shrinkage led to VSMR contractions. Swelling-induced contractions were accompanied by...
- Smooth Muscle Differentiation in Human Vein Wall at Valvular Level: Comparison with Nonvalvular Wall and Correlation with Venous Function. Renaudin, Jean Marc; Fiscel, Christine; Mercier, Frederic; Denost, Florence; Turpaulf, Isabelle; Falson, Odile Boutherin; Finet, Michel // Angiology;Jan1999, Vol. 50 Issue 1, p21
The aim of this study was to evaluate local differences in smooth muscle differentiation in venous valves of patients suffering from chronic venous insufficiency, in relation to functional hemodynamic parameters measured by echo Doppler. These functional parameters did not correlate with smooth...
- Preventing intimal thickening of vein grafts in vein artery bypass using STAT-3 siRNA. // Journal of Translational Medicine;2012, Vol. 10 Issue 1, p2
The article offers information on the study conducted by the authors related to prevention of intimal thickening of vein grafts in vein artery bypass using STAT-3 siRNA. It states that proliferation and migration of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) play a key role in neointimal formation...
- THE SLIDING PALPATION FOR EXAMINING VISIBLE VARICOSE VEINS. Albanese, Alfonso R.; Albanese, Alfonso M.; Albanese, Eduardo F. // Angiology;Aug1966, Vol. 17 Issue 8, p525
Studies the sliding palpation for examining visible varicose veins. Surgical treatment of varicose veins; Localizing the place where the insufficient perforating vein "blows out" the blood from the profound veins to the superficial ones; Finding the second insufficient perforating vein place.
- THE THROMBOGENIC PROPERTY OF FOAM OF A SYNTHETIC ANIONIC DETERGENT (SODIUM TETRADECYL SULFATE N.N.R.). Orbach, Egmont J.; Petretti, A. Kenneth // Angiology;Jun1950, Vol. 1 Issue 3, p237
A new technic for the sclerotherapy of varicose veins using foam produced by a solution of Sodium Tetradecyl Sulfate N.N.R. is described. It consists of injecting with one motion of the plunger-in the reverse order-a small quantity of solution, foam prepared from the solution, and some air...
- REAPPRAISAL OF THE SCLEROTHERAPY OF VARICOSE VEINS. Orbach, Egmont J. // Angiology;Dec1957, Vol. 8 Issue 6, p520
Discusses the reappraisal of the sclerotherapy of varicose veins. Techniques to prevent the filling of subcutaneous venous system from the blood arsenal of the deep veins; Indications for sclerotherapy of varicose veins; Contradictions to sclerotherapy.
- The Vein. Tallman, Charlotte // Ventanas;2011, Vol. 2 Issue 2, p132
The article talks about varicose and spider veins. These vein problems are experienced by about 55 percent of women and 45 percent of men in the U.S. Factors that contribute to increased risk of varicose and spider veins include increasing age, family history, hormonal changes, and obesity....
- PEDAL PHLEBITIS. Ficarra, Bernard J. // Angiology;Dec1963, Vol. 14 Issue 12, p578
We believe that inflammation in the veins of the lower extremities occurs in the most distal portion of the extremities, the feet. A brief discussion is presented in support of this postulation, and it is hoped that other investigators will corroborate it.
