Abstract
Objective: To evaluate the effect of compression hosiery during standing work. Design: An open study, comparing symptoms and plethysmographic findings before and after treatment. Setting: University hospital, vascular surgery. Subjects: Forty-eight female volunteers with a standing profession. Methods: Visual analogue scale to evaluate symptoms and foot volumetry to study venous function before and after 4 weeks use of compression hosiery (20-30 mmHg). Result. All scores for symptoms were significantly reduced after treatment. Only 21% of the study subjects had minor abnormalities on foot volumetry. The expelled volume was significantly higher after work at 4 weeks than at the first measurement at inclusion, while the refilling rate was... (More)

The expelled volume was significantly higher after work at 4 weeks than at the first measurement at inclusion, while the refilling rate was significantly lower after work at 4 weeks than at the corresponding measurement at inclusion. Conclusion: Symptomatic improvement was recorded after compression treatment. Limited effects were seen with the objective measurement, although the most important factor, the refilling rate, diminished significantly during the treatment period. Compression treatment reduces lower limb symptoms following standing work. (Less)
