Presented herein are the results of the Russian part of the International Research Program "VEIN ACT" aimed at studying the structure of variants of conservative treatment for chronic venous diseases in the Russian Federation, assessing its efficacy and safety, as well as monitoring of patient compliance.

The obtained findings demonstrated high popularity, among both physicians and patients, of phlebotrophic drugs, determining high patient’s adherence thereto. Recommendations on correction of the lifestyle were complied with by more than 80% of patients, however frequently not in the full scale. Noted was sufficiently low compliance to compression therapy, manifesting itself as a decrease in the class of compression and irregular use thereof in more than 30% of patients. Usefulness of conservative therapy was objectively proved, consisting in satisfaction with treatment and a statistically significant decrease in severity of symptoms of chronic venous diseases in the overwhelming majority of patients.

KEY WORDS: chronic venous diseases, compression therapy, phlebotrophic therapy, micronized purified flavonoid fraction, detralex.
