Background and Purpose: Davali or Varicose vein is a common and chronic disease that many people are prone to it. Varicose veins affects women twice as often as men. Varicose vein is often asymptomatic and sometimes can cause a range of symptoms including pain, ankle swelling, edema, telangiectasia, varicose ulcers. Treatment is usually conservative with life-style modification, compression therapy and surgery is done in a few cases. Because there is no definitive treatment in new medicine, Therefore, in this study, from two perspectives of traditional medicine and new medicine, we reviewed the causes and underlying factors of the disease and its therapeutic methods.
Methods and Materials: The research was conducted in a library method. Four authoritative sources of traditional medicine have been reported using “Noor” software and in new sources three review articles have been reported.
