Story Check This study shows that quality of life can significantly improve when CVI patients are fully engaged in their treatment, even when they have been wearing compression stockings for many years. To measure quality of life, the short version of the specific Freiburg Life Quality Assessment for Chronic Venous Disease (FLQA-VS-10) was used, among other things. The study’s findings:
- In patients with experience using compression garments, a reduction in CVI-associated leg problems could be seen after only one week.
- Compression therapy can only be successful when the patient is properly educated and fully involved.
