Compression therapy in patients with venous disorders and concomitant diseases have unique requirements when selecting a compression stocking or sock.

mediven Angio was developed for and is the optimum solution for patients with chronic venous disease, concomitant peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and diabetes mellitus.

What is Peripheral artery disease (PAD)?


Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is generally characterised by a narrowing or blockage of arteries outside the heart, typically in the legs. Concomitant PAD refers to the presence of PAD alongside other conditions, particularly cardiovascular diseases such as coronary artery disease (CAD) and cerebrovascular disease (CVD).

This coexistence of conditions can complicate diagnosis and management, as patients with concomitant PAD are at a higher risk of cardiovascular events like heart attack and stroke.

Symptoms of concomitant PAD can include leg pain, cramping, weakness, or numbness, especially during physical activity.

Diagnosis often involves physical examination, medical history review, and non-invasive tests like ankle-brachial index (ABI) measurement or Doppler ultrasound to assess blood flow in the legs.

Treatment for concomitant PAD focuses on relieving symptoms, preventing the progression of the disease, and reducing the risk of cardiovascular events.

Lifestyle changes such as smoking cessation, regular exercise, and a healthy diet are essential. Your medical professional may prescribe medication and compression garments to manage underlying risk factors.

In some cases, procedures such as angioplasty or bypass surgery may be necessary to restore blood flow to the affected limbs. Overall, concomitant PAD requires comprehensive management to address both peripheral artery disease and any associated cardiovascular conditions, intending to improve symptoms and reduce the risk of complications.

Regular monitoring and collaboration between healthcare providers are crucial to optimise outcomes in this complex condition.

Diabetes and compression garments

For individuals with diabetes, compression socks can be particularly beneficial in managing circulation problems and preventing complications such as peripheral artery disease (PAD) and diabetic neuropathy.

Poor circulation and nerve damage are common issues for people with diabetes, leading to symptoms like leg pain, numbness, tingling, and swelling. Compression socks help by promoting blood flow from the legs to the heart, reducing swelling, and supporting the lower limbs.

Several studies have shown that wearing compression socks can help improve blood flow, reduce edema (swelling), and alleviate symptoms of peripheral neuropathy in diabetic patients. However, individuals with diabetes need to consult their healthcare provider before using compression socks, as they may not be suitable for everyone, particularly those with certain medical conditions such as peripheral artery disease or skin infections.

When choosing compression socks for diabetes, selecting the right compression level and ensuring proper fit is essential to avoid complications such as skin irritation or pressure sores.

Healthcare providers can advise on the appropriate type and fit of compression socks based on individual needs and medical history.

Compression socks can be a valuable tool in managing circulation problems and reducing symptoms associated with diabetes. Still, it's essential to use them under the guidance of a healthcare professional to ensure safety and effectiveness.
