    Aim. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the long-term results of the formation of the single-cusp valve in the common femoral vein (CFV) of the patients presenting with avalvular deep veins (ADV) of the lower extremities.

    The criteria of the ideal type of phlebography for clinical use are: 1. A clear view of the deep veins of the lower extremity must be uniformly obtained. 2. The direction of the blood flow in visible communicating veins must be from the deep veins towards the subcutaneous system. 3. The...

    This is a report on 1216 patients (1353 lower limbs) from 24 hospitals in China who were operated on by formation of a ‘substitute valve.’ Reflux of the deep venous system in lower limbs is the indication for this operation. Most of the diseased limbs had primary valvular...

    Traditional harvesting of the greater saphenous vein (GSV) has meant a long, continuous incision with the potential for increased morbidity, pain, and hospital stay. The authors have used a minimally invasive video-assisted technique in an attempt to reduce these complications. In this report,...

    Non-enhanced two-dimensional (2D) time-of-flight (TOF) MRA is well established for imaging of the deep venous system. However, based on the acquisition of multiple axial images, it can be time-consuming and often fails to delineate small superficial and perforating veins. The presented low-dose,...
