PURPOSE The purpose of this investigation was to study the mechanism of venous valve closure in physiologic conditions in situ, particularly the clarification of the role of reversed flow through the valve in the closure of the valve cusps. A second purpose was the study of temporal relations between movements of the valve cusps, changes in geometry of venous sinus, and blood flow. METHODS Twelve healthy volunteers underwent examination with duplex ultrasound scanning. The time relationship… CONTINUE READING
