High impact information on Popliteal Vein


Anatomical context of Popliteal Vein


Gene context of Popliteal Vein

  • An anatomic definition of the obstructions and the collateral pathways is therefore easily displayed from the popliteal vein to the vena cava [10].
  • The peak velocity in the popliteal vein was measured at rest with the legs flat, foot-up, and foot-down, then it was measured when the AV Impulse Foot Pump was activated [11].
  • They were selected because they had varicose veins and proximal deep vein incompetence with photoplethysmography (PPG) venous refilling time (VRT) <15 s with a below knee tourniquet, and a femoral or popliteal vein reflux time (RT) >1.5 s on duplex ultrasound [12].
  • At reoperation, the aorta was repaired with a superficial femoral/popliteal vein interposition graft; a segment of superficial femoral/popliteal vein was also used in-line to revascularize the superior mesenteric and celiac arteries [13].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Popliteal Vein

  • Our results suggest merit to routine examination of the deep femoral, anterior tibial, and particularly the soleal (but not the gastrocnemius) veins and also to use of an imaging technique to detect congenital duplications of the superficial femoral and popliteal veins [14].
