BACKGROUND Venous reflux can be elicited either manually or by pneumatic tourniquet, and previous studies did not indicate any significant difference between these manoeuvres in patients with superficial venous insufficiency (SVI). PURPOSE To investigate if two methods correlate in patients with CVI. MATERIALS AND METHODS Venous reflux was studied in 94 venous segments of 57 limbs in 52 consecutive patients with SVI.
