Abstract: Background: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the Venous Clinical Severity Score (VCSS), as a valuable tool, for adequately describing symptoms, signs and patient’s response to surgical treatment.
Aims and Objectives: To study VCSS as a efficient quantification tool in assessing the patients with venous disease pre and postoperatively.
Methodology: This study was conducted on 90 patients who underwent surgery for varicose veins during the period of January 2019 to December 2019 from the in-patients of surgical unit in Dr. PSIMS & RF.
Results and Conclusion: The VCSS was devised to include both symptoms and signs in assessing the severity of the disease and evaluation of outcome of surgical treatment. Although the assessment of clinical etiological anatomical and pathophysiological (CEAP) classification might be adequate for daily clinical purposes, VCSS should be used in clinical practice to quantify post operative outcome.
