Background: It has been recently postulated that inflammation may have an effect on varicose vein development and prognosis, besides increased venous pressure. CRP/albumin (CAR) is a novel inflammatory marker associated with poor prognosis in a various group of patients. Our aim in this study was to investigate the relation between varicose greater saphenous vein (VSM) diameter and CAR.
