The aim of this independent study was to demonstrate the rapidity of the efficacy of an oral venotropic compound (Linfavenix, including natural elements) in patients with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). Two groups of patients with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) ankle swelling) were treated wtth Linfavenix or with below-knee elastic compression. The average ambulatory venous pressure (AVP) at inclusion (both groups) was 56.2 (range 48-55) with a refilling time (RT) shorter than 10 seconds. These parameters indicated a severe level of venous hypertension. There were no significant differences in AVP and RT between the two groups. The two groups of subjects with CVI were comparable; in the Linfavenix group there were 14 patients (age 44.5; sd 4; range 34-55; 7 females); in the elastic compression group there were 12 patients ( 45.4;5; range 36-56; 7 females).
The clinical picture and microcirculatory parameters at inclusion were comparable.
