Abstract

The purpose of this study was to summarize the current issues in chronic venous disease by reviewing of the literature relating to the condition. The review was conducted by members of the Committee on Research of the American Venous Forum and includes the Committee's venous disease and current/future directions. Progress in the understanding and management of chronic venous problems has lagged behind that in arterial disease, despite the large number of patients affected. The complex pathophysiology of venous problems, lack of accepted evaluation standards and lack of prosthetic conduits are some of the factors which contribute to this. New information in these areas has laid the foundation for advances in both operations and non-operative therapy. In conclusion, many opportunities for clinical and basic research in the area of chronic venous disease are available. Application of basic science techniques, including those of molecular biology, will lead to new insights into pathophysiology of chronic venous syndrome. Developments in technology, classification and basic science suggest multiple new potentials therapeutic approaches in the next decade.
