mediven® struva® 23: the effective alternative to compression bandages in hospital
mediven® struva® 23 is a round-knit clinical compression stocking for compression of the lower limbs. With the standardised moderate compression of 23 mmHg, the mediven® struva® 23 is the effective alternative to conventional compressive circular bandages after operative procedures.
The precise defined compression gradient ensures high medical efficacy. Clinical compression stockings with moderate compression strength cover a wide range of indications.
Most deep vein thromboses occur during or within 24 hours of operative procedures. Therefore, the pre-operative use of clinical compression stockings is already routine practice.
The mediven® struva® 23 offers many benefits for both patients and nursing staff alike: the open toe simplifies hygiene and allows a quick inspection of the circulation situation. The silicone topband with its size indicator ensures a secure hold and makes it possible for nursing staff to check the fit easily. The special instep reduces wrinkling when the foot is in dorsiflexion.
- Precisely defined compression gradient for a high degree of medical effectiveness
- Painful constrictions and window oedemas are reliably prevented
- Safe, fast and simple to use
- High level of treatment compliance due to greater wearing comfort
- Colour coded size system for quick and simple selection of the stocking size
- Highly cost-effective due to multiple use; simple to use; wounds are easy to inspect and treat
- Suitable for thigh circumferences of up to 78 cm
Round knitted clinical compression stocking for compression of the lower extremities, mainly for prevention and treatment of diseases of the venous system and general swelling.
- Physical thrombosis prophylaxis in partially mobile patients - pre-, intra- and post-operative
- Prevention and therapy of post-operative and post-traumatic oedema and haematoma and for reduction of concomitant pain (e.g. orthopaedic or venous surgery)
- Therapy of venous leg ulcer in immobile / partially mobile patients
Advanced peripheral arterial occlusive disease (if one of these parameters is present: ABPI < 0.5, ankle arterial pressure < 60 mmHg, toe pressure < 30 mmHg or TcPO2 < 20 mmHg on dorsum of foot), Decompensated heart failure (NYHA III + IV), Septic thrombophlebitis, Phlegmasia cerulea dolens, Massive leg oedema
Take especial care if the patient has:
Severe weeping dermatosis, Intolerance to compressive material, Severe paraesthesia in the limbs, Advanced peripheral neuropathy (e.g. in diabetes mellitus), Primary chronic polyarthritis
