Clinical efficiency of Cycio 3 fort and Cycio 3 cream (Pierre Fabre, France) was assessed in 40 patients with different clinical manifestations of chronic venous insufficiency. All patients were given Cycio 3 fort by 1 capsule twice a day and underwent slight ascending massage with local application of Cycio 3 cream twice a day for 30 days. Self-assessment of patients, degree of trophic disturbances, diameter and volume of compromised limb were evaluated. Doppler ultrasound was used for determination of linear and volumetric blood flow parameters, computer thermography – for lower limb skin temperature. The most favorable results were obtained in patients with varices. Doppler ultrasound showed the increase in venous flow velocity by 40-45%, close to normal values. In patients with postphlebitic syndrome these indices have increased less then on 10%. Cycio 3 fort and Cycio 3 cream were most effective for varices in the compensatory stage and combined with limb compression bandage for 1 grade lymphedema. The medications can be indicated for preoperative and postoperative treatment of patients with decompensatory varices, as well as for patients with surgical contraindications.
