Background and Aim: Due to the prevalence of sublingual varices, especially in the elderly, and the importance of etiologic studies and the reported, varicose veins are probably related to sublingual varices. The present study was conducted on elderly patients with sublingual varices and their control group in Kahrizak Alborz in 2018.
Materials and Methods: A case control study was conducted by referring to Kahrizak Charity Sanitorium. First, a list of the elderlies over 60 was made. The purpose of the study was explained to those in the list and they were included as the sample of the study following their consent. The experimental group included those with sublingual varices and those without sublingual varices were included in control group. Both groups were homogenized in terms of age, gender, smoking, and high blood pressure. Diagnosis of sublingual varices and varicose veins were done based on clinical examination and standard methods of diagnosis. The sublingual varices of the participants were diagnosed based on interviews and examination in a private room. The roles of varicose veins were evaluated running Chi-square test.
Results: A total of 109 patients with sublingual varices and 109 control participants were studied. The subjects in the two groups were similar or did not have significant differences. Exposure to varicose veins in case group was 67 (61%) and 49 (45%) in the control group (P<0.025).
Conclusion: It seems that patients with sublingual varicose tend to be more exposed to varicose veins.
