Varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis, and haemorrhoids: epidemiology and suggested aetiology.
Br Med J 1972; 2(5813):556-61BM

Abstract

Current concepts on the aetiology of varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis, and haemorrhoids have been examined and, in the light of epidemiological evidence, found wanting.It is suggested that the fundamental cause of these disorders is faecal arrest which is the result of a low-residue diet.
