Theoretical-practical Masterclass in Elastic-Compression Therapy

Theoretical-practical Masterclass in Elastic-Compression Therapy

In numerous pathological conditions such as phlebology, trophic ulcers, lymphedema, edema, lipedema, thrombosis, pregnancy outcomes etc., compression therapy proves to be an irreplaceable tool for favourably modifying the venous and lymphatic circulation. Elasto-compressive bandaging is recognized as the Gold Standard in reducing the causes, symptoms, and effects of vascular and lymphatic pathologies.

In the context of vascular lesions of the lower limbs, correct compression therapy is the first-choice treatment for reducing edema and associated complications. This therapy, if not applied correctly, can itself be the cause of important complications and the patient’s lack of therapeutic adherence.

The course is based on best practices and the most recent national and international literature and will teach how to combat veno-lymphatic pathologies.
Participants will learn the classifications of the pathologies involved, the types of bandages most suitable for different treatments and the different methods of application. Furthermore, basic knowledge relating to bandaging techniques will be deepened and elastic compression techniques will be developed in the treatment of cutaneous vascular lesions.
