ABSTRACT
Twelve simultaneous deep and superficial vein pressure tracings taken at rest and during exercise in the erect position are reported. These show that repeated muscular contractions are accompanied by intervals in which the deep venous pressure falls below that of the superficial veins allowing flow from superficial to deep veins to occur and favoring flow from the capillary bed.

    Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare congenital, vascular disorder affecting one or more limbs. The syndrome is characterized by capillary malformations, soft tissue or bony hypertrophy and varicose veins or venous malformations. We present a case of this disorder in a twelve-year old boy...
