A duplex ultrasonographic system was used to examine the common femoral artery in left and right legs of 49 fit young men and 15 fit young women, to find out the normal blood flow in the human leg during rest. By this method the diameter of the vessel and the time average velocity could be measured and the blood flow calculated. Each person underwent three examinations of each leg after 10-min rests. The average diameter of the common femoral artery was 91 +/- 10 mm (95 mm in the men and 80 mm… CONTINUE READING
