Varimed® classification of compression is defined by pressure produced by stockings, measured at the ankle.

Features

Varimed® Compression Stockings are designed for users with knowledge and experience of many years by experts in order to obtain maximum comfort and benefit according to “DD ENV 12718 Medical Compression Stockings” standard. For this purpose, our measurement system is developed as much nearly made to measure compression stockings which are easily adapt to leg. Having double-covered yarn enables an excellent elasticity, long time easily wearing and removing the stockings and perfectly wrapping the legs. Allergic effects on the skin have been decreased in minimum since our all raw materials are having Oeko-Tex certificate. The silicone topband used on thigh length compression stocking prevents sliding the stocking from the legs and does not distort the compression profile.

9000 Serie Compression Stockings are Classical Serie of Varimed and they are ideal for especially long time compression stocking users for daily use.
8000 Serie Compression Stockings are Cotton Serie of Varimed. They are ideal for the users who have sensitive skin and like natural usage thanks to containing the %100 cotton material on the skin.Varimed® Compression Stockings’ classification of compression is defined by pressure produced by stockings, measured at the ankle. Varimed®Compression Stockings have graduated profile with maximum compression at the ankle, decreasing towards the thigh.

MEDICAL COMPRESSION STOCKING TREATMENT IN VEIN DISEASES

The veins return blood to the heart from all the organs of the body. The main problems of the veins include inflammation, clotting and defects that lead to distension and varicose veins.

The legs contain two major groups of veins: the superficial veins, located in the fatty layer under the skin and the deep veins, located in the muscles. Short veins connect the superficial and deep veins. Blood pressure in all veins is normally low and in the leg veins, is low pressure can pose a problem. Blood has to flow from the leg veins upward to reach the heart when a person is standing. The deep veins play a major role in propelling blood upward. Located within the powerful calf muscles, these veins are forcefully compressed with every step.

Varicose veins are enlarged superficial veins in the legs. The precise cause of varicose veins is not known but it is probably a weakness in the walls of the superficial veins. This weakness may be inherited. Overtime, the weakness causes the veins to lose their elasticity.

The deep veins contain one-way valves to keep the blood flowing up, not down. When valves become incompetent the cycle of unidirectional blood flow is interrupted and backflow of blood occurs. This is most significant when the backflow blood occurs between the deep and superficial veins, as the increased pressure in the superficial veins will cause further valve incompetence. This is because the valve cusps no longer meet as a result of the stretching of veins. The overall effect of this increased superficial hydrostatic pressure is the formation of tortous varicose veins. If this increased hydrostatic pressure is not treated it leads to chronic venous insufficiency which in turn result in oedema, lipodermatosclerotic changes, varicose eczema and ulceration.

External compression applies controlled pressure to the skin. This then supports the superficial venous system, helping to reduce the increased hydrostatic pressure and redress the balance between the deep and superficial veins. This helps in reducing oedema and aiding venous return.

Unlike compression bandaging with its high working pressure, medical compression stockings exert a resting pressure. The daily build-up of pressure is controlled by the limited ability of the hosiery to strech, so incompetent venous valves are approximated, venous return is accelerated, the fibrinolytic activity of the venous wall is increased and the risk of thrombosis reduced.

Medical compression stockings exert an external pressure which is greater at ankle and reduces at the calf and thigh, thus increasing blood velocity within the deep venous system. How much pressure to apply is recognised that the amount of pressure required is dependent on the severity of the condition. Severe venous hypertension is associated with oedema, eczema, skin pigmentation, induration and ulceration. It can be seen that the management of these conditions will require a higher level of compression than conditions such as mild varicose veins and oedema.

Choosing the Size: Two measurements are sufficient to choose the exact size; the ankle circumference (cB) and height of the leg (l D is for knee-length stockings, F is for mid-thigh length stockings, G is for thigh length and pantyhose stockings). The other leg circumference measurements confirm the selected stocking size. Compare the measurements with those in size table. Do not use the stocking in case of patient’s whole leg measurements do not correspond the size table.
