Abstract: This study was conducted' to compare between the effect of ankle aerobic training with and without elastic compression stocking on chronic venous insufficiency among patients with varicose vein. Subjects; Twenty four subjects (7maJe and 17 female) with primary varicose vein of the lower limb were randomly selected and referred from the vascular departments of AI-Kasr El Aini Hospital after being clinically evaluated by their vascular specialist according to the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Their age ranged from 30-50 years. Materials: Venous color duplex to determine the luminal diameters or the cress section (in millimeter) of the long saphenous vein (CsGSV) , Push-pull dynamometer For isotonic measurement of muscle strength, and Tape measurement to measure calf muscle circumference had been used in this study. Procedures: All the subjects were assigned into two study groups. Subjects enrolled in group I had performed pedal ergometer ankle training for six weeks without elastic compression stocking, while subjects of group II had performed the same exercise training in addition to wearing the elastic stocking for the same six weeks period. Results: The statistical analysis of the data had showed that pedal ergometer training had significantly increased the calf muscle isotonic strength, and significantly reduced the diameter of the great saphenous vein at the level of knee and ankle. On the other hand wearing the elastic compression stocking in addition to exercise training had failed to add more significant improvement to the tested variables.
