[Effect of "anti-thrombosis" stockings on the venous hemodynamics of the lower extremities. Study using mercury gauge plethysmography].Phlebologie. 1987 Jan-Mar; 40(1):59-67.P
Study by plethysmography with mercury gauge. The authors have analyzed the effects of "anti-thrombosis" stockings on venous hemodynamics of 18 lower extremities, by plethysmography with mercury gauge (Periflow J.S.I.). With this method, they delineate the limits of efficacy of the use of only elastic stockings as prophylactic treatment of the thrombo-embolic disease in immobilized patients.
