Compression following treatment of superficial venous incompetence: systematic review.

Mohamed AH, Thadani S, Mohamed SH, Sidapra M, Smith G, Chetter I, et al.

Br J Surg 2022; 109: 679-685.

There were 18 studies including 2584 legs. Use of compression for 1 to 2 weeks after intervention was associated with improved comfort and quality of life. Use of compression after 1-2 weeks was not beneficial.

Comment: This is helpful, but not novel. Focus should turn to which is the best form of compression.
