Chronic Venous Disease

Helping you every step of the way

Today, one of the greatest challenges in managing chronic venous disease (CVD) are complex healthcare systems. A patient may endure many therapy phases, especially when the therapy process is complicated by underlying diseases or other health issues. Several specialists could be seen throughout the course of therapy. Different products and brands are all considered and tried until progress is seen. Instead of focussing on single products, imagine a new culture anchored on therapy-driven healing solutions, with the patient at the centre. Imagine a family of best-in-class, synchronised products specifically designed to ensure seamless therapy progression and give patients back the quality of life they desire and deserve.

  • What is CVD?

    What is CVD?

    A chronic disease, a chronic burden

    Chronic venous disease (CVD) is a common condition consisting of persistent morphological and functional abnormalities of the venous system (e.g. varicose veins) indicating the need for investigation and care. Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a term reserved for advanced CVD, which includes debilitating complications such as chronic oedema, skin changes and venous leg ulcers (VLU).17 All of these can significantly impact an individual’s mobility, daily activities and quality of life.1,3

  • Where CVD happens

    Peripheral venous system of the leg

    Chronic venous disease is directly related to the health of the peripheral venous system in the legs, which consists of the deep veins, the superficial veins and perforating veins. Deoxygenated blood travels through this system into the inferior vena cava and back to the heart.

  • Where CVD happens

    Damaged venous valves - Pathogenesis

    The peripheral venous system is naturally at an overall low pressure. Venous valves can weaken for a variety of reasons such as a late consequence of deep vein thrombosis, hormonal changes during pregnancy, or a sedentary lifestyle. When venous valves weaken or there are abnormalities in the venous walls, blood can flow backward and increases the pressure in the peripheral venous system, known as venous hypertension. If venous hypertension is sustained over time the vein walls stretch and the valve cusps no longer meet when the valves close. This further increases the hypertension, which can lead to swelling, discomfort and varicose veins. If the increased blood pressure and symptoms are not addressed, chronic venous insufficiency can develop.

  • A chronic disease, a chronic burden

    A population at risk

    Because of today’s more sedentary lifestyles and an ageing population many individuals are at risk of developing CVD, leading to increasing CVD-related costs for healthcare systems worldwide. Family history and certain comorbidities further increase the risk of developing CVD.

    The risk factors:

    • Over 50 years of age
    • Tall
    • Limited mobility
    • Pregnancy
    • Obesity
    • Sitting/standing for long periods
    • Medications that cause/increase oedema4
    • Family history of varicose veins, venous ulcers or deep vein thrombosis1
    • Multiple chronic comorbidities that damage the venous system such as cardiac failure, diabetes, phlebitis, venous thrombosis and venous obstruction4
  • A chronic disease, a chronic burden

    A serious burden on healthcare systems

    • More than 50% of venous ulcers require therapy longer than a year1, and 70% of venous leg ulcers can recur5
    • Nearly 5% of the adult population in developed countries is affected by CVI13
    • 5-30% of the population is affected by varicose veins1
    • 60-80% of leg ulcers have a venous component3. Up to 1% of the Western population is affected by active and healed ulcers combined14
    • Annually, nearly 2% of total healthcare costs in the US and Europe are attributed to the therapy of chronic wounds; venous leg ulcer care is estimated at $3 billion annually1,15,16
    • The estimated cost of venous leg ulcer treatment in the USA is $2,500 per patient, per year - in Germany it is €9,750 per patient, per year

  • Diagnosis

    The path towards therapy

    Diagnosing CVD

    Chronic venous disease (CVD) is a common condition. Left untreated, it can manifest in its more severe form chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), with complications such as varicose veins, chronic oedema, skin changes and damage up to venous leg ulcers. If your client complains about one of the following symptoms please refer her/him to a specialist:

    • aching, tired and heavy legs
    • spider veins
    • minor or even major swelling of the lower extremities, especially after long periods of sitting or standing
    • visible and/or painful varicose veins
    • oedema or skin changes
    • venous leg ulcer

  • CEAP Classification & Therapy Options

    CVD can be classified according to the CEAP classification. The elements of the CEAP classification are: Clinical condition, Etiology or cause, Anatomic location and Pathophysiology. Use of such a classification improves communication between specialists.

  • CEAP Classification & Therapy Options

    The Development of CVD

    CEAP C0 - Out of sight but developing

    C0 can easily be missed, because there are almost no visual or clinical indicators. Clients might complain of tired, heavy legs but attribute it to standing for long periods. At this stage, preventative care can have an excellent outcome. If your client has several of the risk factors, it is advised to inform them about the disease and the importance of preventing progression as well as the consequences of leaving it untreated. Emphasis should be put on early therapy in order to sustain or even improve quality of life.

  • The Development of CVD

    CEAP C1 - Signs are beginning to appear

    As the venous system begins to experience valve failure, the first visual indicator might be telangiectasia or reticular veins ("spider veins"). As with CEAP C0, patients may also complain of tired, heavy legs and could experience some minor swelling, which resolves when resting or elevating the legs. Since spider veins are mostly viewed as a cosmetic issue by patients, discussion about the risks and pain which can occur in C2, a class associated with varicose veins, could motivate a patient to take action to slow down disease progression.

  • The Development of CVD

    CEAP C2 – Time to get serious

    C2 is a clinical condition which describes varicose veins as a symptom of CVD. Venous valve failure is serious enough that back flow and blood pooling are causing vein walls to stretch beyond repair. Complaints about tired, heavy, painful legs and minor swelling are common. Like spider veins, patients often view varicose veins as a cosmetic issue and simply being part of ageing. It is critical for patients to understand that once CVD worsens, symptoms like odema can appear (CEAP C3). Delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the skin is being compromised and complications can easily develop leading to skin changes.

  • The Development of CVD

    CEAP C3 – Increasing patient discomfort

    C3 defines oedema as the primary symptom. Caused by accumulation of fluid in lower extremity tissues, the oedema is often accompanied by a heavy ache. Therapy is critical to counteract the progression to more severe symptoms from skin changes to ulcerations. Compression therapy stockings and bandages help support the calf muscle to pump blood preventing back flow and pooling in superficial veins. Both options help reduce capillary filtration and increase interstitial compression, which helps excess fluid to be absorbed back into the venous and lymphatic system, reducing oedema. At C3, a higher compression class would be beneficial to achieve desired outcomes.

  • The Development of CVD

    CEAP C4 – Serious risk of progression

    C4 is defined by skin changes. Skin changes include discolouration which most often appear on the inner part of the ankle or leg. Also the skin can thicken and harden. Once this is present, the skin is damaged and the therapy goal is to prevent further progression to venous leg ulceration and complications such as infection. Because the skin is now quite fragile, extra care must be taken to not cause trauma through friction, for example scratching the skin. It is critical for patients to understand how vital it is to delay progression, as well as having a clear perspective on what could lie ahead should the disease progress. In order to gain patient compliance in therapy it is vital to manage a patient’s expectations about quality of life, any current limitations and duration of therapy.

  • The Development of CVD

    CEAP C5 – The road to venous leg ulcer (VLU) recovery

    Though C5 is characterised by healed ulcers while other serious CVD conditions might still exist, there is a 70% chance of recurrence of a VLU and the patient re-entering C6. VLUs can be complicated, requiring a lengthy healing process. Because treating a chronic VLU can also mean managing high wound exudate levels, malodour, any infection or infection risk, a patient’s mobility, morale and general sense of well-being can be negatively affected. During C5, educating your client on keeping the skin healthy as part of an overall ulcer prevention plan should be key.

  • The Development of CVD

    CEAP C6 – The road to venous leg ulcer (VLU) recovery

    During the challenges of C6, helping your client to understand the healing process and why healing sometimes takes longer than expected can help manage patient expectations. At the same time, it can be important to give clients hope that chronic VLU’s can be healed by carefully and diligently complying to combined wound care and compression therapy plans.

About BSN Medical

Therapies Hand in Hand

Together we can create a healthier future

As we look towards a healthier future for CVD patients, it is critical to recognise the key role patient education and compliance plays in ensuring that future. The more patients know about the underlying causes, risk factors and lifestyle choices for CVD, the more they can understand that reducing the symptoms of CVD is possible. And while there is no cure for CVD, being personally involved in the overall outcome can be quite empowering for patients, which could greatly influence their future quality of life.

We aim to create innovative and truly effective answers to the problems of therapy, to achieve a far greater degree of patient compliance which most importantly will lead to better outcomes. This is our most fundamental and overriding philosophy and the goal we constantly work for. This is the reason we are so committed to Integrated Therapy Solutions. We aim at standing shoulder to shoulder with you and your clients and support them as they adapt to life with CVD. If you have any questions or wish to know more about CVD and our Integrated Therapy Solutions you are welcome to contact us at any time.
