[Phlebodynamometry in the study of venous insufficiency of the lower limbs].
Minerva Cardioangiol. 1999 Jun; 47(6):185-9.MC

Abstract

BACKGROUND

The significance of ambulatory venous pressure measurement in the diagnosis of chronic venous insufficiency of the lower limbs is evaluated.

METHODS

190 limbs of 120 outpatients were investigated from 1991 through 1997; the study was performed whenever clinical and ultrasound evaluation did not allow to establish the diagnosis of "simple varices". The technique standardized according to Nicolaides was followed.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS

The results of the study confirm the importance of ambulatory venous pressure measurement in the differential diagnosis of chronic venous hypertension of the lower limbs, especially when caused by vein compression, as well as in the follow-up of these patients when submitted to surgical treatment.
