CHRONIC VENOUS DISEASE AND CEAP CLASSIFICATION

General Information:

Schedule: Sunday, 16h00
Lecturers: Luís Machado, MD | Armando Mansilha, MD PhD
Level: B

Workshop’s Description:

Chronic venous disease (CVD) is a common disorder that affects the veins of the legs and can cause painless enlarged veins, skin irritation, skin rash, skin discoloration, itching, swelling, and skin ulcers.

In order to standardize the reporting and treatment of the diverse manifestations of CVD, a comprehensive classification system – CEAP (clinical-etiology-anatomy-pathophysiology) was developed.

This classification, based on correct diagnosis, was also expected to serve as a systematic guide in the daily clinical investigation of patients as an orderly documentation system and basis for decisions regarding appropriate treatment.

This workshop will allow to to see and understand the evolution of chronic venous disease through their different stages.

No lab coat is required!
