These are for people hoping to prevent or with problems in the veins of their legs, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT), phlebitis, varicose veins, swollen legs, venous ulceration and after vein surgery. Medical compression stockings work by applying graduated compression – highest at the ankle and gradually reducing towards the top of the stocking. This encourages flow of venous blood back up the leg. Scintera offers world-leading Maxis Micro and Maxis Relax stockings.
Without going too much into the causes of varicose veins and DVT, compression stockings are the best solution for the prevention of vein disease but also a necessity as an adjunct to all form of treatment available. Whether the form of therapy is Sclerotherapy, endoveinous laser, radio ablation and vein stripping all these treatment use compression stockings or compression hosiery as a post operative support as it is complementary to the treatment.
