[Microcirculation end effect of detralex in patients with chronic venous insufficiency of the lower extremities].Angiol Sosud Khir. 2003; 9(3):60-5.AS
Fourteen patients with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) of the lower extremities, class 0-4 according to the CEAP (1995) were examined for microcirculation (MC) and effect of detralex, using biomicroscopy of the conjunctival vessels and capillaroscopy of the nail matrix, with detailed computed morphometry. In 7 patients, CVI was associated with truncal arterial hypertension and in 5 with type 2 diabetes mellitus. It has been established that in CVI patients, there were remarkable disorders of MC and regional circulation. In addition to regression of the clinical manifestations of CVI, administration of detralex given in courses to 12 patients noticeably refined both regional circulation in the lower extremities and systemic MC, marked by abatement of perivascular edema, an increase in the number of the functioning microvessels and flow acceleration in them. Also, there was marked the lowering of intramuscular red blood cell aggregation.
