Treatment depends on patient choice, severity and fitness. Options include:

  • No treatment – not a life-threatening condition especially for varicose veins
  • Conservative – trial of compression stockings

In patients who are considering or unsure about surgery, a trial of compression treatment can be employed. Recommendations include:

  • (20-30mmHg) for C2- C4 disease of the CEAP classification
  • (30-40mmHg) compression therapy with garment for C6 ulcer disease

Most chronic discomfort and skin changes can be ameliorated by judicious use of compression garments, skin care, lifestyle changes and topical dressings.
