Table 5 Blood velocity of veins measured with or without GSC

From: Thigh-length graduated compression stocking cannot increase blood velocity of the common femoral vein in patients awaiting total hip arthroplasty

Velocity (cm/s) Without GCS With GCS P-value Alteration%
GSV peak velocity 11.2 ± 3.9 11.6 ± 6.0 0.93  + 3.6%
CFV peak velocity 17.6 ± 5.6 16.1 ± 6.0  < 0.05 -8.5%
Junction peak velocity 23.3 ± 9.5 21.3 ± 9.7  < 0.05 -8.6%
GSV mean velocity 6.7 ± 3.1 6.9 ± 3.7 0.96  + 3.0%
CFV mean velocity 9.5 ± 3.5 8.9 ± 3.5 0.18 -6.3%
Junction mean velocity 13.8 ± 6.5 12.8 ± 6.2 0.06 -7.2%
  1. Values are mean with SD
  2. GSV Great saphenous vein, CFV Common femoral vein, Junction the junction of GSV and CFV
