Chronic venous disease (CVD) is a major public health problem due to its high prevalence and socioeconomic costs. In absence of adequate care, it can lead to chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). Disturbed venous-flow patterns lead to venous hypertension. Therefore, prevention of CVD involves venous hypertension reduction. In primary prevention, it is essential to inform the patient about necessary lifestyle changes. In case of CVD, it is essential to propose treatment (compression, venoactive drugs, and interventional treatments) to avoid CVI appearance and eventually offer the best therapy solutions for CVI complications.
