The objective was to compare in-situ diameter, capacity and distensibility changes as well as ellipticity of large human veins of different locations, reveal alterations with age, body position and increased intraluminal pressure. Ultrasonographic assessment of mediolateral and anteroposterior diameters was performed of femoral, axillary and inner jugular veins, in erect and reclined positions as well as before and during controlled Valsalva test. Groups of young (24.0±0.4 years, n=11) and… CONTINUE READING
