Access from EThOS:
Venous valves have a significant physiological role, and pathologies have strong clinical implications. The literature is rich in description of the consequences of venous valve pathology, but there is relatively little about the characterisation of normal valve operation and the haemodynamic characteristics of the opening and closure processes of venous valves, either in health or disease.
