Intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) is an established treatment option to remove tissue fluid in patients with lymphedema and chronic venous disease. The effects of IPC directly applied after varicose vein surgery performed with high volumes of tumescent local anesthesia (TLA) have not been investigated. Aim of this study was to evaluate postoperative IPC, concerning its impact on leg volume and patient comfort after surgery.
