Early Stages Detection

During the vWIN Albarella meeting 2017, we will present the latest data on the Berlin Kids Vein Study, the detection of blood particle aggregates as indicators of valve damage and findings in C0/C1 patients.

At least 30% of young kids seem to have congenital vein valve damage, but it is usually not detected before defects enlarge during adolescence. Ultrasound technology is the key for more accurate data, e.g. revising the famous BOCHUM study. Acquired insufficiency follows different mechanisms, induced by venous hypertension and stasis. The CAGGIATI assumption on progression modes may be differenciated and clarified by vein valve analysis. There is no descending or ascending mode, but the simple truth that most diseases start in a location of minor resistance or major attack, and so does venous insufficiency. All sequelae are determined by genetics, live style, prevention/therapy and the well-known vicious circle.

You will be able to access the presentation here after 5th of October.
