The clinical results from the application of functional segmental plethysmography with air cuff, deviced by us, were described. 1. From the results obtained in examined 53 normal limbs, normal values of each venous function of the lower extremities were determined and physiological volume changes of lower extremities under various conditions were approximately estimated. 2. It was pointed out that the results obtained by this examination can be divided into five types and this type classification may be useful to judge the data. 3. From the results obtained in cases of varicose veins, phlebothrombosis and postthrombotic syndrome, the pathophysiological changes of each disease were discussed. In cases of postthrombotic syndrome, it has been observed that the main pathological change of this syndrome may be the obstruction of deep venous channels, added by some venous reflux. 4. The clinical usefulness and reliability of this measurement were reported.
