Access from EThOS:
Chronic venous insufficiency is the term used to describe lower limb venous disease causing symptoms in the leg, which include swelling, lipodermatosclerosis and ulceration. The underlying processes for the development of these symptoms are venous reflux, deep venous occlusion or both, which in turn result in venous hypertension. This thesis is focussed on the former process only, as deep venous occlusion is usually managed conservatively at the institutions in which this research took place.
