Color Doppler “venography” is currently the most commonly used method in the study of venous diseases. It is estimated that 70% of the population in Western societies has some degree of pathological lesions in the venous system of the lower extremities. Examination of the veins is a technical challenge for the examiner because there are many anatomical variations in the venous system. 50% of cases of varicose veins coexist and are the cause of venous insufficiency – varicose veins.
• Suspected acute thrombosis
• Suspected valvular insufficiency
• Superficial varicose veins of the lower extremities
• Pulmonary embolism
• Superficial thrombophlebitis (20-30% coexists with clinically silent deep thrombosis)
• History of previous acute thrombosis (increases the chance of new acute thrombosis – increased risk 40-60 times)
• Prevention in pregnancy
• Preventive in taking contraceptives
• Patients with symptoms such as edema of the lower extremities, night cramps, heartburn, itching of the lower extremities, feeling of heaviness in the legs, gastrocnemius fever, fever of unknown etiology, skin disorders such as hyperpigmentation of the lower extremities, skin ulcers.
