Venitan forte is a combined preparation for external use, contains a venotonic agent and a direct anticoagulant.
Escin is found in horse chestnut seeds (Aesculus hippocastanum L., semen) and is a mixture of triterpene saponins. Escin has an anti-inflammatory effect mainly in the initial phase of the inflammatory reaction, by thickening the walls of the capillaries and thus reducing their permeability, which is increased during inflammation.
Escin also has a positive effect on fragility of the capillary walls and increases the tone of the venous walls when it is weakened. All this leads to a decrease in stagnation in the venous bed and the accumulation of fluid in the tissues, preventing the appearance of edema.
Heparin prevents blood clotting, which reduces blood clots in the vessels, and also has an anti-inflammatory effect.
Dexpanthenol and allantoin improve the absorption of active substances through the skin and thus enhance their therapeutic effect.
