[Status of the musculo-venous pump of the thigh in varicose veins].Klin Khir. 1990KK
By means of the ultrasound flowmetry, phlebography, rheovasography and phlebotonometry, 51 patients with varicose disease was examined. It was established, that musculo-venous++ "pump" of a thigh played the leading part in the venous return. In stages I and II of varicose disease, the function of musculo-venous++ "pump" of a thigh was impaired moderately, its sharp disfunction was noted in stage III of the disease.
