Insufficiency of the valvular apparatus of the lower-limb veins is one of the main causes of the development of chronic venous insufficiency. This disease is commonly prevalent in developed countries including Russia and is an urgent and socially significant problem. Insufficiency of the venous valves may be corrected by a wide variety of approaches and methods however they all are not universal or have low efficacy and in some cases cannot be applied at all. This article is dedicated to the review of the existing methods of surgical correction of valvular insufficiency of lower-limb veins, as well as a review of the studies of the most promising trend of this problem, i.e. prosthetic repair of venous valves.

KEY WORDS: chronic venous insufficiency, venous valve prosthesis, surgical treatment.
