ABSTRACT
It is demonstrated that there is a distinct correlation between the findings from phlebographic and clinical examination on the one hand and those of the venous pressure determination on the other. It is shown that various anatomic abnormalities of the venous system can produce approximately the same clinical picture, that of ‘lower leg syndrome’. These abnormalities can cause impairment of the venous pumping mechanism. By means of pressure determination it can be established that this disturbance is of a different nature in each of the various abnormalities. These abnormalities can be distinguished just as well with venous pressure determination as they can be with phlebography. It is suggested that phlebography be replaced by pressure determination in a number of types of disturbance. In other cases the pressure determination can advantageously be used to supplement the phlebography.

    Selective phlebographies of the azygos vein and of the internal mammary veins have shown the existence of spiral movements of the hematic currents coming from the venae cavae into the RAA and toward the tricuspidal ostium. Indeed, the contrasted blood coming from the venae cavae, rather than...

    The scoring system most commonly used to date to describe the thrombotic burden of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) excludes several deep vein segments and is thereby of limited use in research. The aim of this prospective, comparative study was to develop a new scoring and distribution system that...
