Elastic Compression Stockings for Prevention of Post-thrombotic Syndrome (CELEST)
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01578122|
Recruitment Status : Active, not recruiting
First Posted : April 16, 2012
Last Update Posted : March 29, 2018
Post thrombotic syndrome (PTS) is a frequent and burdensome complication of proximal deep-vein thrombosis.Therapeutic options for PTS are limited and mainly rely on its prevention. Therapeutic trials evidenced that elastic compression stockings (ECS) applying 30-40mmHg of pressure at the ankle reduced the rate of PTS by 50%. Although ECS are unlikely to cause harm, in clinical practice, compliance to this treatment appears to be low as ECS may be difficult to apply and to wear.
ECS with a lighter compression strength (20-30mmHg) might be easier to apply and be more comfortable. This could favor a better compliance.
CELEST is a randomized, multicentre, double-blind trial which aims to determine whether ECS applying 25mmHg of targeted pressure at the ankle are non inferior to ECS applying 35mmHg of targeted pressure at the ankle

Device: 25mmHg ECS
Thigh-length graduated elastic compression stockings applying 25 mmhg of targeted pressure at the ankle worn daily (from morning to night) for two years.
Before receiving the randomly allocated treatment, each patient will wear cotton, class III Varisma Comfort® stay-up stockings (20-36 mm Hg).
Active Comparator: 35mmHg ECS

- To show that elastic compression with ankle pressure targeted at 25 mm Hg is not inferior in preventing the onset of clinical post-thrombotic syndrome to a target ankle pressure of 35 mm Hg (recommended pressure being greater than 30 mm Hg) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]cumulative incidence 24 months after inclusion of PTS apparition defined by the Villalta score > or equal to 5. A visual guide will be given to investigators to assist them and standardize PTS evaluation. Investigators will receive a Villalta training during set up visits.
- superiority of targeted pressure at 35 mm Hg for compliant patients. Analysis of the primary endpoint per protocol amongst patients responding to the definition of compliance for compression scheduled by randomization [ Time Frame: 24 months ]analysis of primary endpoint (cumulative incidence of PTS) amongst patients responding to the definition of observance for compression scheduled by randomization. It means a per protocol analysis. The per protocol analysis defined as follow : patients ideally compliant (see next secondary outcome measure with self declaration of compression carrying superior or equal to 80 % especially)and patients with respect to randomization.
- Superiority of 25 mm Hg on the therapeutic compliance criterion [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
Superiority of 25 mm Hg on the therapeutic compliance criterion at 24 months
Compliance is defined by 3 conditions :
- Girerd adapted to elastic compression stocking score adjusted between 0 and 2
because of French clinical practices it should be pertinent to take into consideration 2 compliance type :
- ideal compliance : Self declaration ≥ 80 % (reference PRANDONI)
- adequate compliance : self declaration between 50 and 79% for (French references Delluc and Optimev study)
- return of used stockings ≥ to 80%
- superiority of 25 mm Hg for constraints related to compression and chronic venous insufficiency quality of life (CIVIQ) [ Time Frame: 3 months, 12 months, 24 months ]CIVIQ quality of life (CIVIQ 20) specific to chronic venous insufficiency at 3 months, 12 months and 24 months and questionnaire about constraints of compression stockings.
- non inferiority of 25 mm Hg for the comparative evaluation of the symptomatic effect of short-term compression (pain, sensation of oedema) form baseline to 3 months [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Comparison of evolution at short-term (3 months) of venous thrombosis symptoms (pain, oedema feeling). Self assessment by VAS of pain and oedema feeling once a week during 3 months. Assessment by the investigator at inclusion and during visit at 3 months (ankle measurement, clinical signs) will be done also. A statistical analysis will be done as soon as 3 months follow up data will be verified to evaluate symptoms evolution due to deep venous thrombosis.
