What Are The Costs of Treating Venous Disease?

  • Nick Bosanquet


Since the late 1980s the availability of evidence on the costs of venous disease has much improved. The movement has been from aggregate estimates at a national level to much more firmly based local estimates on treatment costs and changes in spending as a result of different treatment regimes. There is now an evidence base from which to develop scenarios for the future.
