Compression Stockings Post Varicose Vein Treatment

Below Knee Compression Hosiery. Good news for patients having varicose vein treatment at Palm Clinic. At a recent Australasian College of Phlebology Conference Professor Jean-Francois Uhl from France presented work in regards to compression therapy for chronic venous disorders and in particular after treatment of varicose veins.

There is no additional benefit in wearing compression hosiery to thigh level. Palm Clinic is now recommending below knee Class 2 compression hosiery following varicose vein treatment with Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) and Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy (UGS).

We continue to stock full length hose with both open and closed toes for those who prefer them.  There is no disadvantage clinically wearing the longer compression stockings but most people feel more comfortable in below knee stockings.

The main reason the stockings are worn after varicose vein treatment is to lower the small risk of deep vein thrombosis following treatment.
