Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Superificial thrombosis is among the most frequent complications of varicose veins. Miscellaneous treatments have been attempted for relief of patients' symptoms, most of them unsatisfactory. We advocate simple evacuation of the thrombosed varix followed by elastic bandaging and walking exercises, a regimen which gives relief in a short period. Treatment of varicose veins should follow; no drug therapy is necessary.
