Influence of sequential pneumatic compression on postoperative venous function.

Abstract

Sequential external pneumatic compression (SEPC) has been reported to decrease the incidence of acute deep venous thrombosis in postoperative patients by a direct mechanical action on the lower extremity veins and/or by inducing alterations in systemic fibrinolysis. To evaluate the effect of SEPC on venous function in the postoperative patient, pre- and… (More)
