    i have always done my patients in Transdelenberg and if needed standing. Manual compressions,valsava, bilateral takes

    45-6kns. In Long and in Short. Depends on the veins below knee. Above knee mostly in long. Perforators can sometimes and most times are tortuous. Also the GSV's again below knee. I usually check all Sap veins AASV,PASV & I always include all deep veins including all calf veins.etc... Thx Brian.

    I think we need to be careful about how we interpret these results. IfI read them correctly, its ALL the answers in one large pool, and you were able to select as many answes as you felt appropriate - and this skews the results and interpretation of the results - it IS an interesting list, but please be careful with assumptions
