The occurrence of leg edema in patients with chronic venous disease (CVD) is currently evaluated by visual inspection, palpation, and measurement of limb circumference. The changes of soft tissues morphology in swollen legs have been poorly investigated by ultrasonography (US) in the past. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of medical compression stockings (MCS) on the US morphology of the cutaneous and subcutaneous layers (CL and SCL, respectively) in legs with venous edema.

Abstract

The occurrence of leg edema in patients with chronic venous disease (CVD) is currently evaluated by visual inspection, palpation, and measurement of limb circumference. The changes of soft tissues morphology in swollen legs have been poorly investigated by ultrasonography (US) in the past. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of medical compression stockings (MCS) on the US morphology of the cutaneous and subcutaneous layers (CL and SCL, respectively) in legs with venous edema.
