Abstract

Varitest plethysmography is a non-invasive diagnostic method of venous insufficiency based on the study of the emptying of leg veins by flexion movements and their subsequent filling. The Varitest records the curves and measurements of these two stages. The physiological bases of the test and its technique are presented. Our experience, following the first few cases, enabled us to identify three main groups of patients:--Patients presenting chronic symptoms, in whom the clinical examination was negative or not obvious;--Patients presenting a problem of differential diagnosis with a deep/superficial or mixed chronic venous insufficiency. It also enabled us to specify the results of the treatments. According to our results, Varitest is a simple, easy to reproduce method, presenting a sensitivity and specificity with regard to the clinical symptoms and the Doppler, of approximately 80%. Its negative aspects are the poor collaboration of the patients or their inability to be available in order to study acute venous thromboses.
