  Background. Post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) is a common late complication of lower extremity deep vein thrombosis (DVT). 1 The incidence of PTS is approximately 40% in adult patients with a symptomatic first episode DVT within two years. 2 Manifestations of PTS include chronic lower extremity pain, swelling, heaviness and/or fatigue, which may progress to stasis dermatitis or limb .   Dennis M, Sandercock PA, Reid J, Graham C, Murray G, Venables G, et al. Effectiveness of thigh-length graduated compression stockings to reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis after stroke (CLOTS trial 1): a multicentre, randomised controlled : Matteo Manici, Giacomo Alemanno, Magherita I. Nuzzaco.

Graduated compression stockings, when used correctly, have been shown to significantly reduce the risk of deep-vein thrombosis in surgical patients, but they can be harmful to skin and may even increase the risk of thrombosis if the wrong size is used. The authors sought to determine whether nurses correctly size and apply the stockings. Intermittent pneumatic leg compression is an effective method for preventing postoperative deep vein thrombosis. Because deep vein thrombosis is the precursor for pulmonary embolism, it has been assumed that this widely used modality is effective in reducing the frequency of fatal and nonfatal pulmonary embolism. 1 x 1 Mavor, GE and Galloway, JMD.

A compression stocking is a device that uses pressure to help prevent and ease symptoms of various thrombotic conditions such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and Post Thrombotic Syndrome (PTS). Compression stockings are specially made, snug-fitting, stretchy stockings that gently squeeze the leg.

Drugs can cause bleeding, which is a particular concern in surgical patients. Graduated compression stockings (GCS) help prevent the formation of blood clots in the legs by applying varying amounts of pressure to different parts of the leg.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) are common complications of admission to hospital for surgery or acute medical problems, and result in many avoidable deaths. 1 These complications emphasise the potential importance of measures that might reduce the risk of venous thromboembolism, such as anticoagulation, external compression with graduated compression stockings (GCS), and intermittent pneumatic compression.

Graduated compression stockings have been proven to be effective for relieving the heavy, aching, feeling due to varicose veins, and also to help prevent DVT – Deep Vein Thrombosis (Travellers clots) with flying or driving.
