Disease relevance of Bandages


High impact information on Bandages

  • None of these passengers wore elastic compression stockings, and two were heterozygous for FVL [6].
  • This study was carried out to compare the efficacy (oedema reduction) and safety of compression stockings class II and dried horse chestnut seed extract (HCSE, 50 mg aescin, twice daily) [7].
  • Patients who developed calf DVT were given aspirin (150 mg) and compression stockings; those with proximal DVT were admitted for anticoagulation (heparin followed by warfarin) [8].
  • CONCLUSIONS: Based on risk and extrapolating from the general surgical literature, our recommendations for prophylaxis against DVT are use of graduated compression stockings for all recipients and, in addition, low-dose heparin for moderate and high-risk recipients (previous DVT, SPK, age > 40 years, DM) [9].
  • PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of the passive 45-degree reverse Trendelenburg position and graduated compression stockings (GCS) on plasma tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI) and endothelin-1 levels in a group of volunteers [10].
