  • Post-operative reperfusion oedema
  • Cyclic idiopathic oedema
  • Lipoedema
  • Conditions involving stasis due to immobility (arthrogenic congestive syndrome, paresis and partial paresis of the extremity)
  • Oedema caused by job ( jobs which involve a lot of sitting or standing)
  • Oedema caused by taking medication which cannot be altered (no viable alternative)

Medical compression stocking may not be worn if the patient has the following conditions:

  • Advanced peripheral arterial occlusive disease (if one of these parameters is present: ABPI < 0.5, ankle arterial pressure < 60 mmHg, toe pressure < 30mmHg or TcPO2 < 20 mmHg on dorsum of foot). When non-elastic materials are implemented, the patient can still try out compression stocking if they have ankle arterial pressure between 50 and 60 mmHg and they are under close clinical supervision.
  • Decompensated heart failure (NYHA III + IV)
  • Septic thrombophlebitis
  • Phlegmasia cerulea dolens

In the following instances, the therapeutic decision should be made by weighing up the benefits and risks and by selecting the most suitable compressive equipment:

  • Severe weeping dermatosis
  • Intolerance to compressive material
  • Severe paraesthesia in the limbs
  • Advanced peripheral neuropathy (e.g. in diabetes mellitus)
  • Primary chronic polyarthritis

If you are not sure whether one or more of these statements applies to you, speak to your doctor and/ or the medical personnel treating you.
