Compression elastic stockings are a proven treatment for varicose veins and their complications. Clinical trials suggest that the effect of compressive elastic stockings can control problems related to varicose veins and symptoms in patients as well as procedures. However, the same studies suggest that many patients give up their socks and lose the benefit of treatment. Patients who are able to use correctly in the long term achieve good results.
We recorded a simple video in Portuguese to demystify the sock and teach you how to use and maintain your sock. Patients who do not want or are unable to use elastic stockings are candidates to resolve with invasive procedures.
