The authors studied the age-related structure of 864 patients with chronic venous diseases (CVD) by means of analysing the database of the Russian Programme SPEKTR (2011-2012).

Most often special medical care was sought by persons of able-bodied age (31-60 years): men – 60.6%, women – 63.8%.

Class C1 in women was registered at the age under 20 years in 49.5% of cases, in elder groups – from 66.4% to 76.1%. In men, it was registered 1.3-2-8 times less often in all age groups. Class C2 amounted to 75% of cases in women under 20 years; then 50% (21-30 years), increasing to 79.6% (61-70 years). Class C2 in men under 20 years was observed in 100%, then the proportion fluctuated within the bounds of 80% irrespective of the age. The maximum of registering C3 fell to the age of 41-50 years (women – 48%, men – 53.2%). The number of severe forms (C4-C6) in men was considerably more: 31-40 years – 20.2% versus 4.7% in women; 41-50 years – 59.6% versus 17.3%; 51-60 years – 46.7% versus 29.4%. Trophic ulcers were revealed in men most often at the age of 31-60 years – 22% in women in the analogous group – 4.9%.

The anamnesis of CVD increased with age. Adequate treatment for CVD in all age groups prior to the visit to the phleblogist had been carried out very rarely.

KEY WORDS: prospective observational programme, chronic venos diseases, age-specific structure.
