- Venous Insufficiency at Work. Hobson, John // Angiology;Jul1997, Vol. 48 Issue 7, p577
Chronic venous disease of the lower limbs is one of the most common conditions affecting humankind. It has been postulated that certain workplace conditions may be risk factors for venous insufficiency and varicose veins in particular. This paper examines the evidence for a link between...
- The Venous Reflux. Reček, C. // Angiology;Sep/Oct2004, Vol. 55 Issue 5, p541
Venous reflux is the most common cause of venous hemodynamic disorders. In this paper 2 issues are discussed: how and where does reflux arise and what are the hemodynamic consequences of retrograde flow. Pressure gradient and incompetent vein connecting both poles of the gradient are the...
