Answer

Overall, approximately 8% of patients require surgical intervention for CVI. Different options are suitable for different conditions (see below). Careful monitoring of a patient’s cardiac status and vital signs is extremely important. In addition, periodic monitoring of hemoglobin and hematocrit levels yields essential intraoperative data.
