Benefits of compression stockings
All patients with venous insufficiency could benefit from the use of compression stockings in the absence of their few contraindications. The stockings are adapted to the length and shape of the legs, they can be used for different degrees of venous disease, exerting a gradual compression from the ankle (area of greater venous pressure due to the effect of gravity) upwards, generating a gradient that favors return of blood from the feet to the heart.
Compression stockings seek to bring the venous walls closer together, reducing their distention, by reducing their diameter they improve the coaptation of their valves, favoring the ascending flow and the return speed of the blood, opposing blood stagnation or stasis – reducing the possibility of venous thrombosis – while reducing venous hypertension, thus controlling the symptoms and progress of venous insufficiency.
What are compression stockings used for
