Abstract :

 

INTRODUCTION

Chronic venous insufficiency of the lower limbs is characterized by symptoms and signs produced by venous hypertension as a result of structural and functional abnormalities of veins that may eventually give rise to lower extremity, edema, pigmentation pain and ulceration.

OBJECTIVES

This study was done to detect and describe doppler ultrasound appearance in DVT and venous insufficiency.

 METHODS

Study of 50 patients presenting with symptoms lower limb venous insufficiency to the department Radio–diagnosis, MGM Hospital, Kamothe, Navi Mumbai was done using duplex sonography during July 2015 to July 2017.

RESULTS

In the present study of 50 patients with suspected venous pathology, colour duplex sonography could identify the cause of symptoms in 42 patients. It was of immense importance and utility.

 

CONCLUSION

Colour duplex assessment of peripheral veins gives diagnostically adequate anatomic and hemodynamic information. Doppler ultrasound provides a noninvasive and reliable method for examining the venous system, particularly with respect to the diagnosis of thrombus in symptomatic patients.
