Influence of compression stockings on lower-limb venous haemodynamics during laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Abstract

Lower-limb venous haemodynamics were studied prospectively in 40 patients (24 women, 16 men of median age 52 years) undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Patients were randomized to wear compression stockings during surgery or no stockings. All received subcutaneous heparin prophylaxis. Venous capacitance and outflow were measured non-invasively before… (More)
