In short Some phlebological conditions only require the use of medical stockings with compression class 1. Bauerfeind life asked two experts from a dermatological hospital and a specialist practice about their experiences.
- Medical compression stockings with compression class 1 are refundable, do not impact the physician’s budget, can significantly reduce pain and are well accepted by patients.
- Prof. Dr. Birgit Kahle, Deputy Director for Phlebology and Surgical Dermatology at Schleswig-Holstein University Hospital on the Lübeck Campus, has achieved excellent results with Ccl 1, for example in post-operative care, with pregnant patients or patients with jobs that require a lot of standing.
- Dr. Christine Zollmann, co-owner of a joint practice for vein and skin conditions in Jena, also prescribes compression class 1 to elderly patients because it is easier for them to put on.
- In its current guideline, the German Society of Phlebology (DGP) recommends using the lowest effective compression class to support compliance.
