This paper describes the results of the study into the prevalence of chronic venous diseases among industrial workers of Moscow.

It has been established that chronic venous diseases are fairly prevalent among industrial workers. They affect the people of both sexes (67.5% of women and 50.4% of men), varying age and occupation. With age their incidence rises. The most significant risk factors of the onset of chronic venous diseases include hereditary predisposition, pregnancy and birth, overweight, and intake of hormonal contraceptives. The study has demonstrated that in most cases, such patients are not rendered medical assistance.

KEY WORDS: chronic venous insufficiency, epidemiology.
